GoBlue is an accessory that allow Android/iOS phone to connect remotely to device that only had Windows GUI support and yet, updating firmware, exporting/importing config, uploading/download EDID is not possible via BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy), Windows GUI was mandatory for that.
When you connect new generation hardware to lan router then the following becomes possible:
MAC/WIN/LINUX/any computer can be used to run configuration, update fw, import/export config, upload/download EDID
if router have Wifi, then Android/iOS and any wireless computer or handheld device (phone/tablet/etc..) .. can also do the same.
So overall, it's a way better solution than having only windows GUI via USB. but if you prefer such USB link, get a 10$ USB to Ethernet adapter and connect any laptop (mac/win/Linux) directly to Vertex2.
You can also connect it to a wireless extender directly, it's networking, and anything possible in this field.
You can take this under any angle, it's better, superior and more flexible than ever.
