Helium 5G FreedomFi Gateway and Baicells NOVA 430H Outdoor CBRS Radio Bundle
Sold and shipped by Helium Deploy. Only works within the United States.
Baicells Nova 430H is an advanced two-carrier outdoor eNodeB (eNB) compliant with 3GPP LTE TDD technology. This 4x250mW eNB can operate in Carrier Aggregation (CA) mode or Dual Carrier (DC)/split mode.
In CA mode, contiguous or non-contiguous channels are aggregated to provide up to 40 MHz bandwidth. This doubles the downlink capacity when CA mode is used with all Cat6/7 or higher user equipment.
In DC mode, each carrier is treated as an independent cell, supporting 96+96 users, with each supporting 5, 10, 15, or 20 MHz bandwidth. Using a Nova430e/430i/430h in DC mode simplifies and streamlines the deployment of split sectors.
In addition to CA and DC mode options, HaloB (an embedded MME option) is available on the Nova430e/430i/430h as part of the base software. The Baicells patented HaloB solution migrates the necessary core network functions to the eNB.

FreedomFi Helium 5G Gateway
FreedomFi Gateway is the first multi-protocol miner for the Helium network. It will mine HNT for providing LoRa coverage, but is also expandable with a certified Powered by FreedomFi CBRS small cells to earn MOBILE tokens for providing cellular coverage. The FreedomFi gateway supports up to 3 CBRS small cells, by plugging them into ports eNB1, eNB2 & eNB3, and can support additional radios (bandwidth constrained) by using a network switch.
