Helium ready KONA Enterprise Gateway (Ethernet)— base station for LoRaWAN network deployment

Helium ready KONA Enterprise Gateway (Ethernet) is a base station for LoRaWAN network deployment. Equipped with ECC608 crypto-chip, the radio path is built on SX1308 which corresponds to Helium HIP19 requirements. 


To facilitate the rapid deployment of the LoRaWAN network, you only need to provide a -48V DC/POE power supply and Ethernet. 


LoRaWAN and GPS antennas are built into the device case. For remote applications and additional flexibility, the gateway also supports optional external LoRaWAN and GPS antennas. Electrostatic discharge and lightning protection is integrated into all of its interfaces. The Helium ready KONA Enterprise LoRaWAN gateway meets environmental requirements with IP-67 ingress protection for the most demanding outdoor installations. Mean time between failures is 450,000 hours, or 50 years, which means it is virtually “always on”, and the total cost of ownership is the lowest for the operator.

*Full functioning of the gateway (Network Data Forwarding and Proof of Coverage) will be provided after the adoption of the Milestone 3: Introduction of Light Target Completion: Q2 2022 (April 2022).
