Logo Proximus

Proximus is a telecommunications company operating in the Belgian and international markets. It is the leading national provider of telephony, internet, television and network-based ICT services. Its high-quality interconnected fixed and mobile networks provide access anywhere and anytime to digital services and data, as well as to a broad offering of multimedia content. Proximus invests in future-proof networks and innovative solutions to always deliver the best customer experience.

Together with the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL), Proximus started initial exploratory tests in 2012. Tessares (a spin-off from the UCL) and Proximus now intend to be pioneers in developing telco-grade software solutions based on the “Multipath TCP” standard. Our aim is to create a generic solution intended for telecom operators worldwide. This will allow them to combine the speeds of fixed and mobile networks on their existing network infrastructure, or even to combine the speeds of several fixed lines.

Dominique Leroy, Proximus CEO

We’re very pleased to collaborate with Tessares on co-developing a new technology that fits perfectly within our strategy of convergence and our objectives of enhanced customer experience. This agreement with Tessares clearly shows Proximus’ commitment to innovation and our intention to strengthen partnerships with the academic world, which is a major driving force of innovation in our country.”
