Nova 227 allows near immediate ROI even for isolated pockets of subscribers or devices

Baicells Nova 227

Until today, the idea that one could connect as little as 10 customers with a $50 monthly ARPU and still yield a less than 3 month ROI using LTE was a laughable notion.

Baicells Technologies, a provider of disruptive global LTE solutions, has announced at Wireless Internet Service Providers’ Association’s (WISPA) annual “WISPAPALOOZA” show the commercial release of a fully-featured LTE base station as a user cost of below $1,400 called the Nova 227. The Nova 227 is in stock at multiple Baicells distribution partners such as Double Radius, ISP Supplies, and WAV, Inc.

It is common for private network operators, as well as commercial operators, to have small clusters of subscribers or devices that need to be connected, but may be isolated or otherwise difficult to economically connect. This often forces even LTE-based operators to use low cost and low performance Wi-Fi repeaters in an attempt to connect these pockets of users profitably. The Nova 227 was designed specifically for such applications, whether it is an apartment complex, cameras at a traffic intersection, RV parks, or a remote light industrial strip complex. Designed using standard PoE power and in a discreet form factor with an integrated panel antenna, the Nova 227 can be installed on a light pole or even another subscriber location for a zero lease cost micropop site.

“Until today, the idea that one could connect as little as 10 customers with a $50 monthly ARPU and still yield a less than 3 month ROI using LTE was a laughable notion,” Patrick Leary, President of Baicells Technologies remarked, “Well, we’ve done a lot of things no one thought possible with LTE and we’ve done it again here. Operators – private and commercial – face this challenge routinely, so we asked our development team to build a product our customers could use opportunistically to solve this nagging challenge using LTE. The Nova 227 is the byproduct of that effort and the team is really excited to share it with the market.”

The Nova 227 is a 2 port 250 mW (27 dBm) LTE base station operating in the 3.65 GHz and future CBRS (3.55-3.7 GHz) frequencies. It is approximately 10 inches square, uses standard PoE and comes with an integrated panel antenna. The unit ships with everything needed to mount and deploy except power cabling. There are no re-occurring license fees with Baicells and no hidden costs. The Nova 227 and other Baicells products are available from many official Baicells channel partners.

A proud member of WISPA, Baicells solutions are available via several select channels listed on our website.
