All product information and datasheets can be found here:

Getting Started

The GBlade is pre-installed with Ubuntu.

The GBlade should be powered via PoE.

The GBlade serial console can be accessed through the type C USB port through a cable to a desktop/laptop PC. The serial console will show up as a /dev/ttyUSBx device in Linux and can be accessed through a terminal program with the baud rate of 115,200.


sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB1 115200,cs8

Once connected via the USB cable, SSH can be enabled (it is disabled by default) with instructions here: Enable SSH

Any server software (LAMP stack, etc) can then be installed with the package manager.

apt-get update
apt-get install {your package}


There are two ports, 1GbE and 10GbE.

  • (eth1) 1GbE RGMII port is on the left (PoE)
  • (eth0) 10GbE XFI port is on the right.
