(NASDAQ:LTRX), a global provider of secure data access and management solutions for the industrial Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Lantronix to its 2017 Internet of Things 50 list, which recognizes companies whose innovative offerings are helping connect objects, computing devices, infrastructure, data storage and data analytics that will transform our everyday lives.
Over the past 18 months, Lantronix accelerated its IoT strategy with the launch of:
- SGX 5150, an IoT device gateway designed specifically to accelerate secure, wireless IoT deployments of unconnected serial, USB or Ethernet devices.
- MACH10™ Global Device Manager, the industry’s first multi-dimensional industrial IoT global device management SaaS solution.
- The xPico 200 series of advanced wireless embedded IoT gateways. Measuring less than the size of a postage stamp, the compact xPico 200 embedded IoT gateways deliver robust Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, enterprise-grade security, and integrated manageability features that are ideal for industrial IoT applications.
Over the past year, the company also expanded its distribution partnerships with Digi-Key Electronics, Ingram Micro, and TechData, and launched a new IoT partner program. In September, the company joined the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) as a technology partner to expand its presence in this important industrial IoT channel.
“Lantronix is committed to being at the forefront in developing industry-leading technologies that help companies around the world to Connect Smart and Do More. Today, our innovative solutions are sold through a growing network of leading distributors and thousands of VARs worldwide,” said Shahram Mehraban, vice president of marketing for Lantronix. “We are pleased and honored by CRN’s decision to recognize our expanded efforts to deliver more comprehensive and innovative solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things marketplace.”
