Lantronix' XPort Pro™ Now Drives Machine-to-Machine Communications for Energy and Industrial Markets

Expanded Application Capabilities Enable Faster Time-to-Market for Smart Grid and Manufacturing Equipment Worldwide

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - September 20, 2010) -  Lantronix, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading provider of secure, remote management, device networking and data center management technologies, today announced the addition of the de facto worldwide standard industrial protocol, Modbus®, to its XPort® Pro™. Known as the world's smallest Linux networking server, XPort Pro provides customers with a powerful, embedded Ethernet networking engine for deploying advanced applications at the network edge, all in an integrated, thumb-sized package. XPort Pro with Modbus® offers customers unprecedented power to seamlessly communicate with, manage and control their energy monitoring and manufacturing equipment remotely and securely, via the internet -- even behind firewalls.

XPort Pro's form factor is identical to Lantronix' original XPort. Its leading-edge architecture, 32-bit processing power and ample memory allow resource-intensive applications to be deployed on a single platform. Offering Modbus® on XPort Pro is a logical extension of Lantronix' strategy to continually add advanced networking and security features to XPort Pro, to enable state-of-the-art, machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. XPort Pro offers powerful edge computing with unlimited customization and application hosting possibilities, enabling faster time-to-market for developers, along with unprecedented application development options.

"XPort Pro with Modbus will accelerate the transformation of machine networking by instantaneously getting key performance status for subsequent improvement of equipment uptime. This will enable resource-constrained, highly-paid technical personnel to monitor and manage equipment from any location via the Internet," said Paul Pishal, VP Product Management of Lantronix. "XPort Pro offers unprecedented power at the machine level, becoming the eyes and ears of the support organization. Improving uptime or more effectively managing energy consumption requires real-time, secure networking technology with processing power to customize the most demanding applications."

XPort Pro is available running VIP Access™, and the feature rich, Evolution OS™ turnkey operating system and software development kit. The product provides over five times the processing power, and 32 times the memory of its predecessor. It also features SSH and SSL security and encryption.
