The department's strategic objectives will only be achieved if the Val d'Oise has the right infrastructure.It is important to foster transport facilities for both commuters (RER, motorways, airports, TGV high speed train, etc.) and information. As a result, the Val d'Oise now has one of the best high speed data infrastructures of any department in France.
- ADSL (which provides high speed transportation of text, sound and image) is already available throughout the east of the department as well as in the labour pools in Argenteuil and Cergy-Pontoise.
- The Local Radio Loop (Hertzian) is currently under installation and the Val d'Oise features two regional and two national carriers.
- Five optical fibre carriers, France Telecom, Louis Dreyfus Communication, Level 3, Global Crossing and Viatel have deployed their systems in the Val d'Oise. Competition of this kind has provided the Val d'Oise with a high specification communications system making it a top site for relocation! Particularly so since the Val d'Oise is located to the north-west of Paris on a Pan-European route between two capitals: Paris and London.
Val d'Oise's leading edge infrastructure makes the department an ideal location for the implantation of new economy companies requiring data exchange. The department is already home to a series of key Internet Data Centers, now set to be followed by other companies in the Telecommunications sector.
