Aurora, IL. Scientel Solutions (Scientel) headquartered in Aurora, IL, USA recently collaborated with Northern Illinois University (NIU) Golf teams’ located in DeKalb, IL, USA to enhance connectivity for the collegiate-athletes.

NIU is a part of the prestigious Mid-American Conference (MAC) in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division 1 athletic conference. Always being on the road, NIU’s head golf coach, John Carlson reached out to Scientel to find a mobile highspeed broadband solution to help student-athletes with academics while traveling with their team. Keeping up with coursework in between competitions is a top priority for student-athletes. Scientel provided a customized solution that was designed to allow the NIU golf team to maintain constant connectivity back to NIU’s servers while competing in tournaments across the country.

Scientel utilizing Cradlepoint’s mobile router technology found the perfect 5G solution for NIU. Providing the ultimate in-vehicle high-speed broadband network connection, the R1900 series router was installed into each of the team’s vehicles and can easily be managed via the cloud. “As a longtime supporter of NIU’s Golf program, we wanted to provide the best solution for student-athletes to be able to complete their homework, submit assignments on time, and connect with family while traveling.”, Nelson Santos, Founder and CEO of Scientel Solutions states.

Not only will the upgrade continue to support students, but also the staff, ensuring they can remain up to date on event changes, weather impacts, and other time constraints they may encounter while traveling. “This is a significant upgrade for our vehicles. Our team members and staff will benefit from this program upgrade, and it is sure to enhance the athlete experience at NIU.”, John Carlson Head Men’s Golf Coach at NIU states.  

As the winter semester kicks off in full swing, Scientel looks forward to their continued partnership with NIU, wishing them the best of luck in their upcoming season.
