Lantronix Launches PremierWave EN™ to Enable Secure Wireless Communication of Vital Data

High Performance Embedded Device Server Running on IPv6 Ready Linux OS, Reduces Cost and Shortens Development Time for Medical, Industrial and Telematics Customers

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) -   Lantronix (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading global provider of smart connectivity solutions that enable access to any device, anywhere, anytime, today announced the official launch of its PremierWave EN™ embedded Linux wireless device server. The module allows design engineers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to easily add intelligent, wireless Ethernet networking to any device.

When incorporated within an OEM product, the PremierWave EN's secure, high-quality wireless connectivity enables businesses across a variety of different industries to securely transmit medical, financial, customer or other important information across corporate networks. The module allows customers to leverage the many advantages offered by the dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n standard, including network load balancing and traffic segmentation.

"As businesses seek to aggressively build out their wireless infrastructures to support device connectivity, manufacturers seek to minimize engineering risk, reduce time to market, and reduce development costs," said Paul Pishal, vice president of product management at Lantronix. "Our PremierWave EN module provides the flexibility required by OEMs, coupled with support for a range of physical interfaces, security standards, and certification pre-approval. Lantronix has taken care of the 'heavy lifting', enabling our customers to focus on their core competencies, saving them time and money."

PremierWave EN offers a potent combination of performance and low power via its 32-bit ARM9 processor in a very compact footprint. It is built on an embedded Linux operating system and includes Lantronix' award winning device server application. Lantronix' proprietary SmartRoam™ technology ensures uninterrupted connectivity between wireless networks, improving reliability. PremierWave EN also supports a variety of standards and protocols, including IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n, 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi networks, module approval in several countries, and industry security standards including AES, SSL, TLS, and SSH. The module's included VIP Access™ ensures secure remote access to equipment, even if it is behind a corporate firewall.

"Our European customer base is eagerly anticipating the functionality and form-factor that PremierWave EN provides," commented Martin Poppelaars, regional director for EMEA at Lantronix. "Initially we expect to see the medical sector really embrace our new wireless device server as the missing piece of the puzzle, as it removes complexity from these otherwise intricate and often multifaceted systems. The flat and compact design makes it appealing to all markets across Europe, and will play a key role for the abundance of businesses looking to make remote management a reality this year."
