Helium, a provider of IoT connectivity, announced the launch of its latest

product suite, a comprehensive low-power, long-range solution for IoT



The new offering streamlines the ability to prototype, deploy and scale a long-range wireless network that connects thousands of end devices, giving companies a simple way to intelligently and securely deliver data from device to the cloud and application layer.

Securely capturing and transmitting data from the hardware to the application layer is highly problematic for most organizations, who are faced with the challenges of configuring, securing and managing massive numbers of devices. “Connectivity is extraordinarily complicated when dealing with resource-constrained embedded devices,” said Amir Haleem, CEO of Helium.

Key features include:

– Zero configuration for simple installation and setup at scale
– Compatibility across hundreds of hardware providers
– Extremely long range connectivity, on the order of many city-blocks in dense urban applications and hundreds of square miles in sparse rural settings
– IEEE standards-based hardware provides maximum flexibility for changing business demands with no proprietary lock-in
– Hardware-based security to ensure data is encrypted and devices authenticated, end to end
– Over-the-air updating and bi-directional communication to provide future-proofing, up-to-date software and further protection from security risks
– Helium Channels provide interoperability with all major cloud solution providers such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS IoT, and Google Cloud Platform IoT Core
– Full visibility and management enabled by their Dashboard
