BRUSSELS, Belgium, and SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Belgacom, the dominant telecoms provider and managed network service provider throughout Belgium, announced today that it has chosen AirMagnet, Inc. as its preferred supplier of Wi-Fi security and performance solutions for its customer base. Wireless networking is experiencing rapid growth among Belgian corporate and government organizations, and Belgacom is leading the market with award-winning AirMagnet solutions for wireless intrusion detection/prevention (WIDS/WIPS), troubleshooting, wireless site survey, and radio frequency (RF) management. Belgacom has incorporated all AirMagnet products into its suite of product offerings for immediate availability.

"In an emerging market like wireless security, it is critically important to evaluate all product offerings and choose the best for our customers," said Martin Coppens, managing director at Belgacom Network and System Integration. "After a rigorous product review, we found that AirMagnet is the best solution for enterprise-scale wireless security and performance management, as well as wireless intrusion prevention."

Belgacom offers a wide range of managed network services, including complete outsourcing of corporate wired and wireless networks. From its Network Operations Centers (NOCs) in Brussels, Belgacom provides 24x7 network management, monitoring, problem identification and resolution. "AirMagnet Enterprise is the only wireless solution that fits our managed services model, letting us remotely manage and protect our customers' critical Wi-Fi deployments. It will deliver value to key customers in financial and retail markets," said Philippe Jacquemin, product manager of security product and services at Belgacom. Target markets for wireless security management also include telecoms, call centers, distribution, manufacturing and corporate IT.

Belgacom also uses AirMagnet's mobile products to speed its wireless deployments. Belgacom field engineers carry AirMagnet Surveyor to assure that customers have the Wi-Fi coverage they need, and use AirMagnet Laptop Analyzer to understand and troubleshoot in-place networks.

With more than 4,000 corporate and government customers worldwide, AirMagnet is the most used and most popular product suite of its kind. AirMagnet Enterprise is an enterprise-class wireless intrusion detection and prevention solution (WIDS/WIPS) that hardens enterprise WLANs and streamlines wireless security through such features as remote monitoring, zero-configuration wireless sensors and compliance templates.
