Virtually every Belgian benefits from Isabel Group’s services, often without knowing it. Indeed, Isabel Group facilitates electronic payment transactions between a large number of companies, as well as access to documents and identities in Belgium. It is the undisputed market leader here. Stable, reliable, and secure connectivity is therefore vital for the FinTech company. The choice of Eurofiber Belgium’s digital infrastructure was therefore a logical one, says Roel Liers, Head of IT Operations Isabel Group.
Additional connectivity needed
With over 300 employees, 2 data centers, and offices in Antwerp, Brussels (head office), Leuven, Paris, and Tours, more than 72 million invoices per year and 7 billion euros per day in processed payments are currently being realized. Isabel Group’s growth, both organically and through acquisitions, in early 2019 necessitated additional connectivity between sites, two in-house data centers, and the public cloud. Eurofiber was already the party providing connectivity for Isabel Group. And Eurofiber was also contracted for the new connections in Belgium. For example, the existing dark fiber connection between the datacenters was redundant and two additional internet connections were provided. The headquarters in Brussels already had a direct fiber connection to the data centers. Furthermore, the various branches were given WDM connections for data traffic between them and for data communication with the head office. Those additional connections were delivered two months after the contract was signed.
