Coverage

Coverage where you need it, not where it happens to be

With Helium, generating your own coverage is simple and cost-effective. Element Access Points relay data from Atom-based devices from miles away directly to your cloud applications. With Helium you can build secure, robust networks optimized for your use case.

  • Miles of Coverage
  • Flexible Backhauling
  • 10,000s of Devices per Element
  • Zero-Configuration Deployment

How does Helium compare?

There are seemingly hundreds of IoT connectivity options available today - but how many actually scale easily while maintaining their operational benefits? When choosing a connectivity strategy, it’s important to understand performance as well as ease of deployment and ongoing management.

Next-Gen Wireless

Helium's radio technology allows for long-range, low-power communication with hardware-based security, meaning zero-configuration and authenticated data transport. Helium provides up to 250kbit/sec data rates for thousands of devices in production environments by dynamically switching between two frequency bands. And we handle all of this in the background after you connect your devices with just a few lines of code.

  • Long Range
  • Highly Power Efficent
  • FCC, ETSI, IC Certified
  • IEEE Standard PHY
  • Cost Effective
Security

Real End-to-End Security

Helium security keys live in a vault and are based on a hardware root of trust. Each device has its own security key securely burned into the hardware at manufacturing time. Keys are managed and updated periodically, ensuring the encryption, authentication and authorization of all data and devices connecting to the Helium cloud, so only your devices connect to your Helium network.

Step1

Step 1

Every Atom module is preflashed with its own set of physical security keys at manufacturing.

Step2

Step 2

The per-device keys are used to establish a secure wireless connection to Helium.

Step3

Step 3

Helium ensures the physical security and management of device keys.

Step4

Step 4

Using a device-signed certificate, an authenticated connection to a cloud provider is established.

This is just the beginning.
