High-tech and R&M Network for Soccer Fans

Customer: Sport Lisboa e Benfica (SL Benfica) soccer club, Portugal
Partner: Cilnet – Comunicações e Projectos, S.A., Lisbon, Portugal
Project: Redesign of the megastore on the club’s grounds and of two stores in the city, 2016
Application: Network, WiFi and multimedia equipment for interactive shopping experience and infotainment.

Challenge
SL Benfica always uses state-of-the-art technologies. Whether in the stadium or in its fan shops. The club has three stores which are equipped with state-of-the-art technological features: video walls for infotainment, WiFi, interactive and digital functions. The fans were overjoyed when the eagles’ megastore on the club grounds was given a facelift. Two new stores were opened in Lisbon.

These required sophisticated network cabling to be able to use the digital offers professionally.

Solution
The customer opted for a cabling solution from R&M. “We opted for new digital trends. In order to achieve this, we commissioned the best integrator and connectivity brand to transform all our requirements into the perfect customer experience,” explains José Pedro Ribeiro, IT Manager at SL Benfica.

Planning was taken care of by the certified R&M partner Cilnet in close collaboration with R&M Iberia. Cilnet has been the system integrator in all cabling projects that have been carried out to date for SL Benfica.

Result
«The collaboration with R&M is outstanding. Working with R&M means working with a brand that provides quality and efficient technical support.»

João Feio, Pre-Sales Manager at Cilnet
