Why Develop on The People’s Network?

With The People’s Network, developers rapidly create applications without the need to deploy network infrastructure, while eliminating high costs and short battery life associated with cellular networks.

"We’re excited to build new farming applications running on Helium’s new wireless network to collect more data and allow farmers to make smarter operational decisions.”

Matthew Sanford

CEO Agulus

“Clean Water AI has won a number of awards for its unique combination of artificial intelligence, hardware, and connectivity to identify bacteria in water using pattern recognition and machine learning. Helium has been a critical component in our system to deliver data from the edge to our cloud for analysis.”

Peter Ma

Founder Clean Water AI

"We use a multidisciplinary approach to help Fortune 500 companies accelerate their digital transformation. We've chosen Helium for a number of customer engagements who require an affordable, scalable way to collect data from assets to increase operational efficiency.”
