Belgian iconic monument St. Rumbold's Cathedral Tower gets its IT network infrastructure revamped with Black Box
St Rumbold's Cathedral is a medieval church built in the 15th century (year 1452) and is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the heart of the city of Mechelen in Belgium. Reaching almost 100m in height, the cathedral's tower serves as an iconic monument for the city, being its main tourist attraction.
The St Rumbold's Cathedral's existing network was composed of old copper cabling which offered a low bandwidth of less than 100MB, a slow internet connection, no support for multimedia and there was only a limited amount of security cameras. Therefore Black Box was asked to optimise the cabling infrastructure throughout the tower in order to improve overall network connectivity and speed.
