Uscellular’s Network Supports Sutton Center’s Live Bald Eagle Nest Camera

Bartlesville, Okla. (May 1, 2023) – With the George Miksch Sutton Avian Research Center’s (Sutton Center) live bald eagle nest camera reaching the milestone of more than one million views, they need reliable connectivity to keep the camera rolling for the world to see these majestic animals in their habitat. A UScellular router has been providing that connectivity since January 2022 to livestream the nest in Bartlesville and highlight the conservation efforts of the Sutton Center.

UScellular’s connectivity solution involves a specific SIM card in a wireless router that the company allowed the center to test first due to the remote and rugged environment. It was determined to meet the center’s needs, and the livestream is carried over a Wi-Fi network established from the router.

“The camera has stayed pretty consistently online and recording. That’s huge because we’ve had over one million views on our camera from people all over the world,” said Audra Fogle, assistant director of the Sutton Center. “The eagle cam helps us to establish personal connections with the bald eagle so we can continue conservation, working together to make a difference.”

“This was such a fun and unique wireless solution to provide,” said Cory Snelson, business account manager for UScellular in Oklahoma. “The Sutton Center is an asset to our community, and we are happy to play a small role in showcasing their important work to the world.”
