Helium, the company behind the peer-to-peer wireless network – The People’s Network – is teaming up with RAKwireless, Kerlink, and Cal-Chip Connected Devices to bring you third-party gateway solutions on the Helium Network.

RAK Hotspot Miner

This affordable, reliable and secure solution, manufactured by RAKwireless to Helium's exacting specification, acts as a Hotspot, router, and miner all in one package. Cal-Chip Connected Devices is proud to be the exclusive distributor.
With this partnership, anyone can now own and operate a wireless network for IoT devices. The RAK Hotspot Miner acts with, and like, all Helium Hotspots.

Kerlink Helium Compatible Miners

Kerlink is pleased to announce that their industrial-grade indoor Wirnet™ iFemtoCell, indoor Wirnet iFemtoCell-evolution and outdoor Wirnet iStation IoT gateways are enabling Helium cryptocurrency mining, while supporting one of the world’s first peer-to-peer wireless IoT networks based on the LoRaWAN® protocol.
The iFemtocell and iFemtoCell-evolution come ready to mine HNT and are part of the global Long Radio fixed network to provide M2M connectivity link between low power end-points and Internet Access. The iStation outdoor LoRaWAN® gateway comes ready to mine HNT as well and is perfect for industrial and outdoor use where both simple, fast installations and superior coverage is required.
Kerlink Helium Compatible Miners will be deployed with a version of full miner that enables all mining features except being able to participate in consensus groups.

Why Helium?

With Helium’s own open-source blockchain technology, anyone can deploy Hotspots to provide hundreds of square miles of wireless coverage — more easily, efficiently and cost-effectively – while simultaneously mining HNT, a new cryptocurrency as an incentive for building the network.
