Baicells Receives UL Certification For Nova436Q LTE Base Station
The Nova436Q LTE base station is ready for private network operations in hazardous locations that want to take advantage of CBRS spectrum.
Baicells Technologies, a leading LTE and 5G hardware solutions manufacturer, has received a Class 1, Division 2 certification for its Nova436Q LTE base station, certifying the radio can be used to build private LTE networks and provide internet service in hazardous locations such as oil or gas fields and mining facilities.

The Nova436Q is an advanced two-carrier outdoor eNodeB (eNB) that is compliant with 3GPP LTE TDD technology and operates within the CBRS spectrum. This versatile eNodeB can be configured as a 2x1W single carrier eNB, (2) 2x1Ws single carrier eNBs , or a 4x1W Carrier Aggregation eNB, allowing network operators to configure the eNB dependant to meet deployment objectives.
To receive this nationally recognized UL certification for operations in hazardous locations the base station had to undergo rigorous testing at UL facilities. The Class 1, Division 2 certification supports the Nova436Q is safe to operate in locations where volatile flammable liquids or flammable gases or vapors exist, but are normally confined within closed containers; where there is an ignitable concentration of gases, vapors, or liquids that are normally prevented by positive mechanical ventilation; or locations that are adjacent to areas where ignitable concentrations of materials may be transported.
“We’re excited to announce that the Baicells Nova436Q has successfully met stringent testing requirements and is now UL certified for hazardous locations,” said Majdi Shami, Baicells product director. “The base station has complied with both ordinary and hazardous locations requirements in accordance with U.S. UL and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and CAN Standards, meaning the Nova436Q can be safely installed in facilities which deal with flammable gases, vapors, and liquids. It will now be possible for the oil and gas industry to build their own private LTE networks and take full advantage of CBRS through Baicells to begin expanding their IoT connectivity in this evolving market.”
