Explore private network

Modern companies need adaptable ICT infrastructures and services, which can operate without interruption. That is precisely why Proximus has combined its various networks into a single MPLS-based infrastructure offering IP & Ethernet services.

Whether your customer is a single-site or a multi-site company, Explore provides you with a highly flexible, secure and future-proof network. Once your central site is connected to the Explore platform, you can offer “off-net” connectivity and services, such as the ICT services from Proximus, to your customers. Explore is therefore not so much a network solution as a huge service platform with extensive possibilities.

Explore breaks down the boundaries between the various networks: LAN and WAN are now considered and managed as a single unit. This provides your customer with a unique experience of having one or several virtual LANs over all his sites, and offers you the advantage of having aggregated access to the different customer network parts.
