Lantronix Simplifies Enterprise IoT-Enablement With Launch of Industry's First Enterprise Grade 802.11ac Wi-Fi Bridge Module

PremierWave® 2050 Module Delivers Certified 5G (802.11ac) Wi-Fi Connectivity, Robust Security and Production Ready Features for Mission Critical Connected Products and Applications; Company to Demonstrate Product at Embedded World 2016 in Germany February 23-25

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 22, 2016) - Lantronix, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX) -- a specialized networking company providing smart IoT and M2M enablement solutions -- today announced the launch of the PremierWave® 2050 solution, an embedded IoT module designed specifically for applications where enterprise grade security and robust networking capabilities are mission critical.

"For industrial and commercial OEMs involved in building connected machines, incorporating secure wireless connectivity can become an expensive and resource-draining obstacle to IoT-enablement," said Vishal Kakkad, director of product marketing for Lantronix. "With the PremierWave 2050 solution, our objective is to help OEMs eliminate the complexity of wireless IoT enablement by delivering an elegant and robust solution that allows them to speed up their 'time-to-confidence' by reducing development and solution deployment risks. Featuring certified 5G Wi-Fi connectivity, an advanced wireless software stack, integrated enterprise-level security and an industrial-rated compact design, the PremierWave 2050 is the perfect solution for mission critical applications."

The PremierWave 2050 is designed for applications in a variety of vertical markets, such as industrial automation, warehouse and logistics, healthcare, retail, environmental monitoring, medical devices, military, railway and transportation. PremierWave 2050 enables OEMs to embed simple and robust enterprise Wi-Fi connectivity for Ethernet enabled devices without having to undergo major system design shifts and integration effort. Incorporating a module such as the PremiereWave 2050 is also particularly well-suited for product designs with long lifecycles and in highly regulated industries where the constant pace of change in Wi-Fi technologies and certification would typically make it difficult to incorporate a wireless solution.

"Lantronix's reputation as a leader in IoT-enablement, along with the extensive feature set of the PremierWave 2050, have made this the perfect solution for us to create a robust, secure Wi-Fi solution for our stationary thermal barcode and RFID printers which are typically deployed in challenging industrial, warehouse and manufacturing environments," said Andy Edwards, director of product development at Printronix Auto ID. "More importantly, using PremierWave 2050 will allow us to easily keep up with changing Wi-Fi standards without the need for redesigning our product."

The module provides numerous advantages to OEMs and developers of IoT-enabled products, including:

  • Industry's first embedded IEEE 802.11ac Ethernet to Wi-Fi solution to deliver Enterprise-grade, dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity for Ethernet based devices
  • Always on, secure Ethernet to Wi-Fi bridging at the embedded device level
  • Designed for industrial and rugged environments
  • Future proof compact design, eliminates complexity in implementing the latest Wi-Fi standards
  • Enterprise grade security

Featuring a direct Wi-Fi service interface, PremierWave 2050 allows operational technology (OT) and field support teams to perform diagnostics and ongoing maintenance of the enabled device without interrupting the machine's primary connection or requiring special access to the enterprise network. PremierWave 2050 has modular RF certification for many regions and is Wi-Fi Alliance certified, making it easier for OEMs to mitigate schedule and time-to-market risks and reducing development costs.

The company will be demonstrating the PremierWave 2050, along with its other embedded solutions at the Embedded World 2016 in Nürnberg, Germany from February 23-25, 2016. PremierWave 2050 evaluation kits are currently available for sampling. For more information on PremierWave 2050 and where to buy, go to www.lantronix.com.
