How much will it cost/retail price?
I already have a Nova430i, can I just buy the gateway and plug it in to mine Helium?
No. Compatible Baicells units run a custom firmware in development by FreedomFi and Baicells. Units which have not been sold through approved channels, such as on calchipconnect.com, will not be registered and will not have the appropriate firwmare profile to interoperate with the FreedomFi Gateway. In addition to specialized firmware for plug and play interoperability, approved units are also registered with FreedomFi in their serial database, and come with 12 months of support and Spectrum Allocation Service (SAS) registration--a prepaid licensing fee required to operate on the Citizens Rights Broadband Spectrum (CBRS) spectrum band. Approved units also have Certified Professional Installation bundled in to their purchase price. As long as they are properly installed and configured to FreedomFi specification, this step will be completed remotely through the installation process.
Does this provide 5G coverage?
Outdoor rated small cells for the Helium Network from Baicells (the Nova 430i and 436Q) provide 4G LTE coverage to expand the Helium Network when paired with a FreedomFi Gateway, and once Helium Improvement Proposals 37 & 53 are ratified by the Helium community. The FreedomFi Gateway is capable of 5G/LTE Coverage.
Can I buy this Nova430i Pre-provisioned with FreedomFi firmware and FreedomFi unit combination somewhere else?
The units are only available for sale at CalChip Connect and FreedomFi.
