Blue Light Mobile

Blue Light Mobile offers a priority, high-availability mobile voice and data communication service.

Priority

This gives the user priority over private subscribers to use the Belgian networks. If the network should become overloaded, the Blue Light Mobile user will be served first and enjoy the highest speeds.

Best coverage

Blue Light Mobile provides the best coverage in Belgium and the highest service availability thanks to roaming on all national networks. If the assigned network is unavailable, the user will automatically be connected to another network. 

High speeds

The user will experience the best high speed data network of the three Belgian telecom operators (Proximus, Orange and BASE). This means that the user will be downloading, sending and receiving data at high speeds (2G, 3G, 3G+ and 4G).

Guaranteed safety

Thanks to Blue Light Mobile, the data of the user is guaranteed to be secured and remain confidential. If the user would like ASTRID to be responsible for protecting the data by passing through the commercial networks, we are able to provide a mobile VPN at no additional cost.

Blue Light Mobile is specially designed to respond to your specific needs as an emergency or security service, as a government agency or as a crisis manager.
Blue Light Mobile offers the user a mobile voice and data communication service that is highly available thanks to:

  • Priority on the Proximus network
  • Acces to all Belgian communication on all Belgian commercial operators (Proximus, BASE and Orange). This means that if the Proximus network is unavailable, the SIM card will automatically switch to BASE or Orange

Subscriptions

Blue Light Mobile offers the user the choice between two priority levels:

  • First: provides a faster rate for data communication which is not the case for ordinary mobile phone users. However, this level does not guarantee immediate availability – neither for telephone calls nor for data communication.
  • Prior: in addition to the first formula, this level guarantees that the user is able to call and maintain data traffic any time, without delay – even in situations where the commercial networks are congested.

Features

The Blue Light Mobile SIM card gives you access to all Belgian mobile phone (GSM) networks. This ensures you benefit from the best possible coverage in Belgium. The SIM card offers private access to the secure cloud, through which the rescue service can avail of a secure environment for its own applications, but also share applications to exchange data between support teams. Essentially, the concept of a "mobile office" means easy access both for teams on foot or in service vehicles.

Applications

What can I do with Blue Light Mobile and what services does ASTRID provide? Blue Light Mobile services offer significant advantages to users on the ground.
For example, teams can now easily check vehicle registration numbers in real time using their tablets, as well as perform identity checks, draft reports, query the dangerous substances database or share a photo or map with the control room.

Framework agreement

In order to facilitate orders of end user equipment by public safety services, ASTRID regularly organises framework agreements with the suppliers. In this connection, ASTRID organises a public tender so as to select a wide range of the best devices available on the market. End users no longer need to initiate a tender process when seeking to purchase equipment from a supplier under the framework agreement. In addition to significant time savings, they can also be certain that equipment meets all technical and operational conditions.
