Mobility Labs, Meet Your Champion
MobilIty labs are a mess. Usually they consist of different types of USB hubs and power bricks in combination with a storage and server solution. It isn’t pretty, but it’s what these labs need – Power to devices, servers for network access and config, storage for logging and metrics. These builds are inefficient and expensive…
Nodegrid USB unifies the stack.
Mobility Labs Made Simple
It used to be that for a mobile development lab you needed three separate solutions:
storage, server, and a means to power test devices.
With Nodegrid USB, that’s no longer the case. Power, Server and storage have merged
into a single 2U solution geared towards mobile development and testing.
Unified Mobility Infrastructure
Nodegrid USB provides up to 96 powered USB Type C Ports – Power devices continuosly throughout the development cycle. Additional servers are no longer necessary, Nodegrid USB has all the compute, access and control functionality of our Nodegrid family of solutions. Avoid the need for a NAS storage solution with built in storage. Nodegrid USB combines server, storage and power capabilities all in a powerful, high-density 2U 96 port USB Type C appliance.

Save on device overhead costs with Nodegrid’s clustering capabilities. Build your development device library and share it remotely, safely and securely throughout your network infrastructure.
Nodegrid USB provides up to 96 fully and continuously powered USB Type C Ports in a 2U form factor. Power devices throughout the development cycle without worrying about device draw and charge speed.
Additional servers are no longer necessary as Nodegrid USB Server has all the compute capabilities, secure access and control functionality of our Nodegrid products. Avoid the need for a NAS storage solution with Nodegrid USB’s built in storage. Nodegrid USB combines server, storage and power capabilities all in a powerful, high-density, clusterable 2U 96 port USB Type C appliance.
Save money, simplify configuration and management, and cut device overhead and wasted U space with Nodegrid USB.
