Kerlink provides the first carrier-grade LoRaWAN gateways (LoRaWAN Gateways are the link between the source of data – sensors in the environment – and people. That is , they enable scale for the Internet of Things and are a key element in the chain that enables better visibility, reduction in costs, reduction in resource inputs, improved safety and better decision making) embedding miner software. With the introduction of its blockchain, the Helium Network decentralized IoT coverage, resulting in an open wireless network able to combine various LoRaWAN gateways and available anywhere in the world, in a cost-efficient way.
Kerlink gateways are enabling HNT cryptocurrency mining, while supporting one of the world’s first peer-to-peer wireless IoT networks based on LoRaWAN protocol.This capability leverages Helium’s LongFi architecture that combines the LoRaWAN wireless protocol with the Helium Blockchain so that any LoRaWAN device can transfer data on the network. The use of Helium’s LongFi( LongFi is optimized for miles of range, and long battery life for IoT devices) is; it delivers roaming capabilities and supports micropayment transactions so customers only pay based on network usage without needing to deploy gateways or network servers.
Targeting low-power sensors and devices such as animal collars and bicycle trackers, among many others, the network is powered by compatible hotspots which are a combination of the Helium Blockchain and LoRaWAN packet routing software on a single, compact LoRaWAN gateway. This enables customers to easily participate in the deployment of Helium coverage and use the open LoRa-based wireless IoT networks.
Kerlink is considered a Data Only Hotspot because Kerlink gateways will only mine Helium Network Token through packet transfer unless a Kerlink Miner specifically designed for the Helium Network is purchased.
We can’t talk about the Kerlink helium miner while putting LoRAWAN Gateway aside; LoRAWAN is a number of radio frequency technologies used to wirelessly connect sensors and devices for the Internet of Things (IoT) in different types of industries.While a gateway is a house in which hardware and application software that performs essential tasks connect IoT devices to the cloud.
Functions of LoRAWAN Gateway
1.Connect IoT devices to the cloud.
2.Handle the flow of data between devices and the cloud.
3.Multiple gateways can and often are deployed to the same network to ensure full coverage. 4.LoRaWAN networks are both private and public, with private offering custom configuration and public offering pre-built infrastructure.

LoRa is also inexpensive as it runs on an unlicensed band, meaning licenses don’t have to be paid to a government authority by a network provider as they are with 4G and 5G. With an established provider, costs of using the network are therefore kept low, making it an affordable solution.The exact level of coverage varies and is far from 100% in any country.
A single LoRaWAN Gateway can accommodate 1,000s of devices or nodes; multiple Gateways provide resilience to smart solutions.In effect, LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN standard are flexible for rural or indoor use cases in a wide range of industries including smart cities, homes and buildings, communities, agriculture, metering and utilities, healthcare, environment, and supply chain and logistics.
LoRaWAN is by design very secure—authentication and encryption are, in fact, mandatory—but networks and devices can be compromised if security keys are not kept safe, not randomized across devices or if cryptographic numbers used once (nonces) are reused, as is shown by numerous blog posts.
