The ZANO Drone and xPico Wi-Fi: Taking “Selfies” to a New Height!

You may not have seen them yet, but if you look closely, drones are here. They’re everywhere. And it’s just the beginning. While the military has been using drones since the 1970s, it was arguably Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ December 2013 announcement of his company’s plan to offer 30 minute product deliveries via drones that brought them to the mainstream. Whether or not such a delivery service pans out is less important than the buzz (no pun intended) it created – as a kickstart for the drone industry.

xPicoWiFi ZanoDrone Video Thumb 288x195 The ZANO Drone and xPico Wi Fi: Taking “Selfies” to a New Height!

Watch the Zano Drone Teaser Video

Speaking of kickstart, one of our newest customers – the Torquing Group – has incorporated our xPico Wi-Fi into its latest upcoming product launch: The ZANO drone. This new autonomous, intelligent, swarming nano drone takes selfies to a new height – enabling consumers to capture HD photos and video – all in a handheld form factor.

Product delivery and selfies aren’t the only reason to get excited about drones. The Airforce has been promoting its latest Bugbot Nano drone – one in a line of insect drones being explored by military and private sector companies alike.

As a provider of smart IoT solutions for the medical industry (among other verticals), we’re even more excited about the use of drones to save lives. In October of 2014, the Netherlands’ Delft University of Technology announced that graduate student Alec Momont had developed a prototype drone that delivers a defibrillator to a heart attack victim. To address the reality that the victim’s chance of survival decreases dramatically with each passing minute, this “ambulance drone” is guided by GPS to a mobile phone location within 4.6 square miles in under a minute. Once there, the drone uses live streaming audio and video to allow emergency personnel to provide instructions on how to use the defibrillator correctly, and transmit the patient’s vital signs. With more than 600,000 deaths in the U.S. alone from heart disease, medical emergency drones would be a welcome solution.

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!
