Antwerp, Belgium

Bell Labs in Antwerp is the largest corporate ICT research center in Belgium.

Building on the skills and knowlege of over 70 research professionals from 15 countries, we explore the fields of information, communications, and network technologies. Our site has a proven record performing cutting edge research and developing innovations that profoundly changed the world of telecommunctions. The so-called “vectoring” technology that allows us to transmit 100Mbps over twisted pair was a collaboration between Bell Labs researchers in Antwerp and our colleagues in Murray Hill, New Jersey. Today over 13 million lines are deployed, and this invention that started in our labs, brings fiber-optic data transmission speeds to many homes across the world.


Research activities at Bell Labs Belgium span converged access technologies, network architectures and protocols, edge cloud networking, video, data analytics and IoT applications.  Our researchers have expertise ranging from advanced analog and digital hardware design to systems and software engineering.

Bell Labs researchers in Belgium collaborate with academic and industrial partners in Europe. Close to home, we have a longstanding partnership with world-leading nano-technology research institute, Imec. We also work closely with iMinds, Flanders’s digital research center spanning 5 Flemish universities.
