    Details

    Dandelions are outdoor directional antennas that are ideal for providing coverage to a smaller area like a block or street.

      About The Dandelion

      Pollen Mobile Dandelion Flower mounted outside

      The Dandelion consists of:

      • Baicells Nova227 radio
      • integrated GPS
      • integrated 65° antenna
      • external Pollen Stem (AGW) 

       

      The Dandelion works best when placed outdoors, in a high up location, or mounted to a window facing outdoors. 

      Setup

        1. Connect the power cords to the AGW and Flower 
        2. Connect ethernet cord to 'NETWORK' on the AGW, with the other end to your internet source (router/switch) 
        3. Connect ethernet cord to 'eNB', with the other end to the Flower's 'WAN/IPOE+" port 
        4. If the eNB is connected to both power and internet properly, the PWR and ACT LEDs should be solid green and the RUN LED should blink slowly.

        Confirm Signal Strength—

        To confirm the strength of your Flower’s coverage, setup your Pollen eSIM and then follow these steps:

        1. Go to ‘Settings’> ‘Cellular’>‘Cellular Data’
        2. On your phone, dial the following: *3001#12345#*, then press call
        3. A screen will appear with the title “All Metrics”. Tap the right list menu icon. 
        4. Under ‘RAT’, press ‘Cell Info’
        5. Bookmark the metrics ‘PLMN’, ‘CellID’, and ‘RSRP’ by tapping on the bookmark icon
        6. Go back to the Dashboard screen, tap the ‘Home’ button
        7. From this view, you can see your Flower’s metrics. Change your location from the Flower to test the strength from different spots. RSRP shows the signal strength, typical ranges are -44 (good)  to -144 (bad).

        FAQ

        What’s the best position for my Dandelion to maximize range? 

        The Dandelion is an outdoor Flower. We recommend placing it outdoors on a pole, or suctioned to a window facing outwards. 

        Are there any materials that will interfere with the signal?

        A mesh screen on your window will interfere with the signal. Additionally, foliage can interfere. The best placement is a high up location that is generally unobstructed.

        How much power does the Dandelion consume?

        The Dandelion + AGW is expected to consume around 22 watts.

        How do I receive rewards?

        Your Flower receives rewards when it is "seen" by Bumblebees and Honeybees  (we call this Proof of Coverage). To receive rewards for your Flower, you will need to have linked your Solana wallet address to the NFT that is etched onto the top of the Flower. This needs to be done prior to delivery. 

        We recommend the following wallets: Phantom, SolFlare, and Slope.

        How do I link my Flower to my Solana wallet?

        After you place your order, you'll get an email with a link to a Registration Form. Fill that out by providing your Order # and Solana wallet.

        Remember: you need to do this prior to delivery as hardware will not ship without an associated account. 

        If no Bumblebee or Honeybee connects to my Flower, will my Flower still earn anything?

        The Flower needs to have connections to earn PCN each day. Every Bee-Hex connection (subject to limits to prevent gaming) earns credits that are used to determine how much PCN are earned from that day's Incentive Payments pool. 

        I need help setting up my Dandelion. Who can I contact?
