Frédéric Jans-Cooremans is a Project Manager at the STIB, Public Transport Operator of Brussels. After a long experience in radio matters, he joined the company 13 years ago.
Working in a group of signaling experts, his radio knowledge was used to write the tender of a driverless metro system based on radio interchange. As a result, he participated in the launching the Spectrum Users Group of the UITP and took a role in the working group at the ETSI to share a frequency band with the ITS.
He was recently involved in the ECC mandate from the Working Group Frequency Management to provide a secure frequency band for CBTC, processing the highest priority of use in front of the ITS and Wifi band extension demands.
He moved from a day-to-day activity of the operational communications between the STIB vehicles and dispatching to the new Tetra project. Aiming to optimize and improve the radio network of the company, he was building the biggest private Tetra network of Belgium.
He is also taking care of the coherent use of the radio waves by the company and acts as an interface for the radio matters. As Belgian Expert, he was also involved in the CCAM workgroup, supported by the European Commission, devoted to the implementation of the Intelligent Transport System in order to make the roads safer and the traffic smoother.
Frédéric is now retired but is looking for new challenges in the Radiocom domain
