R.S.C. Anderlecht, a Belgian Pro-League team and the most successful Belgian football team in European competitions, had a problem. The nature of modern competitive football requires a team to spend a great deal of time on the road and just like everyone today the Anderlecht players want to stay connected. In a driving bus it was difficult for them to connect their mobile devices while travelling and to maintain a stable connection and so long periods were spent out of contact with the outside world. It became a sore point as players felt that this was wasted time. Furthermore, time was then spent at their destination catching up on their messages and social media. M2Mcom offered Anderlecht a solution.
Players now connect to their bus’s new 4G super-fast network. They can connect to the internet and check up on mails, messages and even watch films online. They can keep up to date with their social media and more importantly with their family and loved ones, leaving them free to concentrate on the game when they reach their destination.
In short, their new 4G network on the bus can do everything they do on their Wi-Fi at home.
Michael Ruysseveldt, football team bus driver: “As soon as they are on the bus and settled down, and I forget to turn on the Wi-Fi, the players will be asking for it. They really enjoy being able to put this travelling time to good use by surfing on the internet and going online generally. Not a peep out of them!”
M2Mcom provided and installed the technology that made this impressive upgrade possible. A powerful MAX HD4 multi-cellular router by Pepware was installed, a router combining four 4G modules, which enables the use of up to four different cellular providers for bandwidth bonding, data coverage protection and eliminating blind spots.
Players now look forward to relaxing in the bus as they put their travelling time to and from games to good use.
