Boston Labs

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.

We recognise this challenge, so to help our clients make informed decisions about new technologies, we have opened up our research & development facilities and actively encourage customers to try the latest platforms using their own tools and if necessary together with their existing hardware.

 

Helping your business grow with Boston Labs:

 

  •   Leverage our expertise

  •  Expert help every step of the way

  •  At your convenience with anytime remote dial-in access

  •  Be the 1st to access the latest and future technologies

  •  Site visits available

 

REQUEST YOUR TEST DRIVE

Understandably, some customers may not be able to visit our labs in person. Therefore arrangements can be made for test systems to be set up in our labs with remote access via RDP, SSH or other means; enabling you to trial our solutions from wherever you are in the world.

Further options such as customisation and branding can also be discussed and demonstrated for clients looking for us to brand and customise their own range of systems and appliances.
