Connectivity is widely considered to be the ‘fourth utility’ alongside electricity, gas and water, however unlike any other utility, tenants have traditionally been expected to arrange and install their own connectivity piping within the building. Node turns connectivity into a utility by pre-plumbing the building with internet pipes that connect to all floors and suites. Tenants just choose their internet service provider and Node activates the ‘tap’ in their suite with that provider.

Node is one of the first companies to offer an all-in-one prop tech platform that combines a mobile and web app with the ability to integrate with various other systems.
