Meet The Customer

The United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) was founded as the United States Slow-pitch Softball Association in the spring 1968. Headquartered in Brevard County, Florida, USSSA is the World’s Largest Multi-sport Athletic Organization.

Over the past 40 years USSSA has grown from a couple of thousand slow-pitch softball players to over 3.5 million participants playing 13 primary sports. In fact, USSSA sanctions teams and individuals in 38 sports.




Remote Device Management

Using cheap routers purchased on Amazon, USSSA had begun to stream a small number of their ball games. After a successful trial run, the next phase of their project, expanding to a larger number of games, hit a roadblock.  Most of these games are remote and managing a larger number of cameras proved difficult as the devices purchased from Amazon didn’t have a way to manage the devices remotely.



After hearing of USSSA’s challenges, RCN Technologies knew exactly what was needed, and sent over a demo of Cradlepoint’s Netcloud Service. This proved to be exactly what was needed to successfully scale the game streaming project. Specifically utilizing Cradlepoint IBR650 Routers, USSSA was able to bring their total number of concurrent live streams up to 20, with another 30 devices on the way to expand even further. These secure endpoints provide a private LTE network that can be managed remotely while being deployed virtually anywhere.
