Introducing the New BuffaloGrid Hub
This new Hub has been in development for the last two years and represents a crucial step in our mission to connect the next billion internet users.
The Hub features a custom-designed lithium-ion battery sealed in an IP67-rated case and which can be powered by either grid power or solar power. Power can then be provided to up to 28 smartphones or featurephones simultaneously using our custom sealed cables. The Hub can communicate with our Cloud Platform using SMS, 2G, 3G and 4G data, and has the ability to broadcast internet access over the built-in Wi-Fi connection. The Hub also contains a 7 inch OLED touchscreen display which can be used by our customers to interact with a range of built-in services or to watch video content.
We will be providing the new BuffaloGrid Hub to our existing network of agents who are active today selling power in rural Uttar Pradesh in India. These Hubs will be provided for free, allowing our customers to charge their phones using the most advanced off-grid phone charging system ever created.
And for the first time ever, the BuffaloGrid Hub combined with our Cloud Platform will be available to buy. We will be starting live trials in early-2018 with a select group of partners. If you would like to be involved in these trials and think your organisation could run it's own BuffaloGrid Network, please get in touch.
