The n-Hub was designed for a simple deployment as it connects to international networks and can interoperate between management platforms thanks to its open architecture. It runs with Linux and its software developement kit allows to freely create software applications for almost any kind of health care issue.
The n-Hub integrates:
- internal antennas for a fast deployment;
- several levels of backup power;
- redundant antennas;
- an intuitive OLED display with a user-friendly interface for installation;
- multimodal mount and power options;
