Peplink gets R.S.C Anderlecht connected

R.S.C Anderlecht Bus and Coach Wi-Fi

Internet on the road

R.S.C. Anderlecht, a Belgian football team and the most successful Belgian club 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. On the road, it was difficult for their smartphones to stay connected while roaming up and down the country and to maintain a stable connection. As a result, 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. Peplink Partner, M2Mcom offered Anderlecht a winning solution.
“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!” -Michael Ruysseveldt, Anderlecht Team bus operator.

M2Mcom with a winning solution

Equipped with a Pepwave MAX HD4, players now connect to their bus’s new super-fast network. They can connect to the Internet and check up on emails, 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, and interact with their fans, leaving them free to concentrate on the game when they reach their destination. In short, their new 4G LTE network on the bus can do everything they do on their Wi-Fi at home.

M2Mcom provided and installed the technology that made this impressive upgrade possible. A Pepwave MAX HD4 multi-cellular router was installed, a router combining four built-in 4G LTE 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.
