On site test facilities available for your use. New and improved technologies are emerging all the time, and this can be a daunting situation for customers planning their future projects. Making the right decision about new hardware is a difficult proposition, made even harder when clients are unable to test and understand the hardware first before making their purchase.
In some instances, the only way to know if a product or solution meets your needs is to try it. Our technical team are ready to help build full solution stacks on cloud-based lab systems or even on loan hardware that can be brought to your environment to ensure the right product is purchased for the right task. Our R&D lab - Boston Labs hosts a wide variety of the latest hardware and software solutions ready for evaluation either remotely or hand in hand with one of our experienced field application engineers
Our experienced team can assist with bring up and optimisation of both hardware and software elements of solutions. Advice on the best product selections and tuneables delivering the best performance, power consumption and cost is on tap when you book a session at Boston labs.
