The renowned full-service agency, FamousGrey, has developed a real time city guide for Visit.Brussels, called now.brussels. The app allows you to discover Brussels through the eyes of its true inhabitants.
“Brussels has a lot of beautiful places, many of them undiscovered by tourists, but known by the locals. Visit.Brussels came up with the idea of creating an app as part of a larger campaign aimed at French and Spanish tourists, that shows visitors where the hotspots are located at any time of the day, in real time“. States Maarten Breda, Experience Director at FamousGrey.
Maddalena s.p.a. is an Italian company providing water readers that are frequently used in Belgium and across Europe. Water meters such as the PR-MWM can detect the lowest flow rates (from 0.5 liters / hour). So this makes them, according to this company, “the ideal meter for billing cold water consumption in collective housing”.
Maddalena understood the market’s need for connected meters quite well. So they teamed up with Kerlink to create a LoRaWAN™ add-on radio module. This module makes it possible to collect water consumption data over long distances. Its battery life can last up to 15 years thanks to the low power requirements of LoRaWAN and an optimization in the way this module works.
Recently the first edition of the R-IoT games took place. Realdolmen organized this hackathon for all Flemish-speaking colleges, universities and training centers. The challenge of the competition: ‘Make our society a better place with the help of IoT’. 4 students of the University of Ghent took on this challenge and composed a team as T.Inc with their project called ‘Bin Possible’. They reached out to Proximus for support.
A lot of new features have been brought to the EnCo CloudEngine since the beginning of 2019. We thought it might be a good moment to pause for a second and quickly summarize all what we have added as well as give you a sneak peek at what’s coming next.
Today, all types of organisations in many different sectors get confronted with the need for digital transformation. As was Goodplanet at the end of 2017. Together with Proximus they were able to take the first steps into the world of IoT to help them measure the impact of their activities.
Goodplanet is a non-profit organisation that is active in environmental education and sensitization for 20 years now. They work mainly with schools and companies to educated and sensitize them in different environmental fields. Their main topics are nature, food and circular economies.
In the organisation, several employees are managing projects from the office in Brussels. Other collaborators are active in the field to do coaching and raise awareness. “We reach about 500,000 people a year with our many different activities”, says Clément Magos, responsible for innovation and IT projects at Goodplanet.
Error handling in the context of APIs is a major aspect of the developer’s experience and the final customer. Our goal at EnCo is to provide a consistent user experience across all services, with the highest possible quality.

webhook notifications whenever Proximus Enco creates an incident, updates an incident, resolves an incident or changes a component status.
SAP has an IoT platform within its rich portfolio that offers strong data analysis & reporting (e.g. with the leonardo solutions). The platform manages devices from multiple origins and consolidates sensor & meta data.
Proximus offers theMy Things API as part of the LoRa network. MyThings allows you to administrate the LoRa sensors (f.e. with decoding profiles and auto activation of sensors) and basic data sending. Proximus EnCo makes LoRa data integration possible in your own applications via easy scripting.
Therefore EnCo’s CloudEngine is extended with different modules and a pattern that allows you to integrate on both platforms. Of course, without loosing the flexibility and still matching the security requirements of both systems. To support this, we have added 2 modulesto CloudEngine that allows you to script your engine based on the input of data coming from MyThings.
Molengeek is an incubator, coding school and coworking space located in Molenbeek (Brussels). EnCo was there for the IoT Challenge and it was a fantastic experience ! We decided to go back for a short feedback on the IoT Challenge and also a guided tour with the 2 founders: Julie Foulon and Ibrahim Ouassari.
It is finally here! THE API everyone was looking forward to, is now available on EnCo Market: SMS API! You want to offer a great reach to your outbound marketing campaign, need to send threshold based alerts or strengthen your security with two-factor authentication? Maybe you don’t know it yet but SMS API is exactly what you need!
