Belgacom and Samsung extend partnership deal

Belgacom has signed a new deal with Samsung Electronics that will see the two firms develop end-to-end solutions for the business market.

The strategic partnership will focus on solutions that can be deployed horizontally across a range of sectors as well as those for specific markets including health, public and finance.

The new deal was signed at Samsung's headquarters in South Korea by Belgacom chief executive Didier Bellens and Samsung's executive vice president for global sales and marketing, DJ Lee.

Bellens said Belgacom is "committed" to helping firms manage their everyday communications and improve efficiency levels.

He went on: "By working with a strategic partner as Samsung, Belgacom is able to offer a combination of services and products in a single end-to-end solution along with a service guarantee."

The firms already work together to provide services for the residential market.

"This strategic business partnership is the expression of a long term vision that seeks to generate growth for both parties, and encompasses all product lines of Samsung and Belgacom," said Lee.
