World’s Deepest Underwater Observatory Relies on SLB

Case Study in Baseline Magazine

Earlier this year we blogged about how our Secure Lantronix Branch (SLB) Office Manager was being used at Aloha Cabled Observatory (ACO) – the world’s deepest observatory at 3 miles below the sea surface – to securely manage remote servers and IT infrastructure equipment.

Baseline World’s Deepest Underwater Observatory Relies on SLB

Well, Baseline Magazine thought the use case was so cool that they’ve written a great case study about it! “SLB allows the observatory to transmit data over a local network that includes fiber-optic cable, repeaters on the sea floor, computer modules that handle some processing under the surface of the sea, and addressable switches that control the traffic and process optical signals so they can travel over fiber-optic cable effectively.”

Check out the full article here: Baseline: Observatory Relies on Advanced Remote Monitoring.

Lantronix Rallies Around Digital Classroom with Launch of Print and Learn (PAL) Program

According to the Center of Digital Education, K-12 schools in the U.S. will spend almost $10 billion on educational technology in 2014. In higher education, the National Retail Federation states that student spending for electronics (tablets, laptops, etc.) is up 20% from last year.

There’s no doubt that classrooms are going digital – yet even with the increase in tablets, Chromebooks and other mobile devices, there remains a strong need to print. But printing from these mobile devices can be a challenge – with software downloads and kludgy apps that may or may not be effective.

With this in mind, we have launched a new program called Print and Learn (PAL) to help schools maximize their existing resources to provide students with the tools they need to be successful in the digital environment. PAL closes the loop on the missing link for students and teachers who need to print from their mobile devices. The program consists of a 20% discount (using code: PAL20) on our xPrintServer, idea sharing on new Facebook page, a year-long photo contest and professional services. It is applicable to both K-12 and higher education. The National Parent Teacher Organization has even joined as an official sponsor.

So what are you waiting for? #BeOurPAL today!

Partnering for Success: Lantronix and Cisco

“If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

—Isaac Newton

There are dozens of great quotes attributed to Newton, but the aforementioned quote is definitely one of my favorites.   As one of the most influential scientists of all time and as a key figure in the scientific revolution, Newton’s contributions have impacted all areas of our lives, especially technology.

Isaac Newton Partnering for Success: Lantronix and CiscoOne of the critical success factors for any tech company is “strategic partnerships.” Nowhere is this more critical, and more relevant, than during a market transition – and that’s exactly what we’re seeing today regarding the explosive growth of the Internet of Things, or “IoT.”   You’ve seen the stats: “Over 50 billion devices will be connected by 2015!” or “There is already an average of 6 devices connected to a single person.”   They go on and on, but one thing is certain – the Internet of Things is happening. It’s not a matter of “IF,” it’s a matter of “When” and “Who” – as in “Who will come out on top.”   The surest way to come out on top is to partner with and stand on the shoulders of giants. And Cisco is one of those giants.

As a new Cisco Solution Partner, Lantronix can more quickly, easily, and cost effectively keep in lock-step with the most innovative technologies, gain deeper visibility into strategic market trends, and leverage sales and marketing opportunities through Cisco and across the entire IoT ecosystem.

Specifically, Lantronix will be working with Cisco and its partners and teams on IoT infrastructure solutions – providing the market with the “back bone” powering IoT – specifically our award-winning SLB and SLC families of IT Infrastructure Management solutions. With Lantronix and Cisco, no matter where you are located, you can connect to your equipment throughout the world, then diagnose and remediate problems remotely. Imagine the cost and time savings your business will realize when you no longer have to deploy labor forces to accomplish exactly what you can now do from a central data center. Even more—with Lantronix, you are not hampered by a down network. It simply makes no difference.

And who knows, Lantronix may soon be an IoT giant upon whose shoulders others may stand!

SLB Branch Office Manager Earns TweakTown’s “Best Features” Award!

Today more than ever, the need to keep IT equipment operational 24/7 is critical to the health of a company. Enterprises with distributed branch or satellite offices – such as those in retail, finance, insurance, healthcare, and food services industries – are presented with special challenges, as they need a centralized solution that can manage each location remotely. Our Secure Lantronix Branch (SLB) Office Manager is designed to do just that.

Recently TweakTown, one of the biggest technical media Web sites in the world, took an in depth look at SLB and liked what they saw! Reviewer Paul Alcorn tested SLB and provided his thoughts on each step of the process, from product specs to installation and management to the software interface – and finally his conclusion.

Here’s a snippet: “Lantronix SLB is simply outstanding. While covering a recent event in Seoul, South Korea, we could log in and manage our TweakTown lab in Kansas with no problems at all. When utilized in tandem with the SpiderDuo remote KVM/IP, we can expand the functionality of the SLB even further. The ease of use and superior functionality of the Lantronix SLB is backed by a five-year warranty, and wins our TweakTown Best Features Award.”

SLB earned a 94% rating from TweakTown. Check out the full review here.

Remote Out-of-Band Access in the World’s Deepest Underwater Observatory

(thanks to by Brian Chee, Senior Contributing Editor, InfoWorld Test Center)

Imagine the world’s deepest observatory at 3 miles below the sea surface. Now think about what a challenge it would be to monitor equipment for such a remote location. This was the problem encountered by Aloha Cable Observatory (ACO), as they sought to replace an old power distribution unit (PDU) with a solution that would supply remote power management, control and configuration for critical seawater systems.

Enter SLB! The Secure Lantronix Branch (SLB) Office Manager from Lantronix was selected to securely manage remote servers and IT infrastructure equipment over the Internet and control devices that only had serial remote access. ACO technical staff deployed SLB to perform last-resort power reboots of various control computers in the power and control section of the dry land portion of ACO.

“We needed to replace a failing PDU that was too old to provide encrypted remote access – an issue that threatened to put us in violation of acceptable use policies,” said Brian Chee, IT specialist, University of Hawaii at Manoa. “The SLB solved that issue while supplying more control in less rack space since the SLB provides the functionality of three different devices in a single RU.”

SLB provided ACO with secure, remote out-of-band access while offering more flexibility and power control. If SLB can accomplish these feats 3 miles under the surface of the ocean, think about what it could do for your business!
