Helium teams up with FreedomFi to launch a 5G version of its network

Helium, a platform that utilizes tokens and blockchains to incentivize consumers and small enterprises while running commercial telecommunications hubs, is reportedly launching a 5G version of its renowned network. 

Helium has teamed up with FreedomFi, a company that is known to providing the easiest way towards 5G or private LTE networks. This alliance will support clients who intend to introduce next-gen wireless networks using their mini cellular towers.

According to Helium’s CEO Amir Haleem, the partnership with FreedomFi has provided the company with numerous opportunities to develop a 5G LTE network in which every household can have a miniature cell tower for carrying and offloading traffic anytime.

Blockchain-based decentralized countries have expanded their gateway into industries to reward previously uninvited participants. Sources confirmed that this has also enabled improving the quality of such networks.

Helium’s IoT (internet of things) sensors which are employed in smart pet-collars, scooters, and e-bikes, have reached almost 30,000 hotspots today. The company claims to have an additional 200,000 hotspots which are already paid and in the pipeline.

The Helium-FreedomFi partnership will use CBRS (Citizens Broadband Radio Service), a 5G spectrum that was authorized by the United States FCC (Federal Communications Commission) in January last year. The CBRS will enable the wireless carriers to deploy 5G networks without requiring a special license.

FreedomFi CEO Boris Renski mentioned that the company is looking at carrier offload in the United States which can help in developing improved networks. However, in terms of emerging economies, plenty of entrepreneurs start their wireless network solutions using this as the technology and the foundation, he added. 

An advanced 5G infrastructure will not only allow for faster video streaming but also help software-centric architecture to reduce operating expenses, as well as help people get connected, experts claimed.
