Helium LongFi™ is a technology architecture that combines a leading wireless technology, LoRaWAN, and the Helium Blockchain. LongFi™ is optimized for miles of range, and long battery life for IoT devices.
The Kerlink Helium Compatible Wirnet iFemtoCell Miner earns HNT when devices connect, and for validating wireless coverage delivered by peers. Using a system called Proof-of-Coverage, Kerlink Helium Compatible Wirnet iFemtoCell Miner earn more HNT when they're in range of other Helium Compatible Gateways, but need to be at least 300 meters apart.
Range depends on the environment, for rural areas up to 10 miles or more, but for more dense areas up to a mile.
- Create a new global network for billions of devices
- Any IoT device can become Helium-enabled using readily available off-the-shelf hardware components, software, and a reference design that is open source for anyone to improve upon
