The Lantronix 10-Minute Challenge!

With our legacy of the 30-minute challenge, where Lantronix would demonstrate adding network connectivity to serial devices, we’re upping the stakes. Here’s the 10-minute challenge for connecting your device to the Internet of Things!

The xPico Wi-Fi comes with not just network connectivity, but with Lantronix SmartSuite applications that make it easy to quickly deploy IoT enabled, mobile ready systems. It’s not just a serial port to TCP tunnel connection anymore, but a number of both network and serial port applications that you can choose from by just configuring the device.

Of course, the xPico Wi-Fi still has the serial port to TCP tunnel for transparently (or AES encrypted!) sending data from the end device to your server, without having to change any code on your device! Or you could choose to use familiar AT commands with Modem Emulation. If your application is more complicated, let the xPico Wi-Fi simplify your code and lower time to market by using the Mux, which is an API on the serial port that lets you manage multiple simultaneous network connections (and yes, built-in AJAX processing for dynamic web pages is there too). And with the Serial API you don’t have to manage sockets, the xPico Wi-Fi takes care of all the connectivity for you, just tell the xPico Wi-Fi where your data should go.

Maybe your device has a custom protocol for sending data that you can’t change. That’s where Monitor comes in, a simple logic engine that runs on the xPico Wi-Fi. Configure the Monitor to communicate with your device based on the device’s protocol, parse and filter the data, and present it so that you can extract it on a dynamic webpage.

So the 10-minute challenge is on. On this video, see how we take an off the shelf medical scale with only a serial port, and put the weight on a web page.

More information, including instructions and sample code, are available on the Lantronix Developer Wiki.

xPico Wi-Fi @ Embedded World: Making IoT a Reality!

Embedded World Booth panoramic

Two years ago, Lantronix launched the first in the xPico product family at Embedded World, introducing the market to the most flexible, mobile ready Wi-Fi solution for IoT and M2M applications — all in an incredibly tiny footprint.

Lantronix xPico Wi-Fi compact form factor

Couple that with a greatly increased brand presence and pre/post show marketing, and customers and competitors alike are commenting that Lantronix is back, in a big way.

Flash forward two years and the xPico Wi-Fi is driving end-user applications and is in-market, helping make IoT a reality.

Today, in real time, we’re blogging from the show floor — and the excitement around xPico Wi-Fi, PremierWave and Lantronix in general is palpable. Visitors, partners, customers and the media have been able to watch the progression from idea to real world application.

The ZANO drone (powered by xPico Wi-Fi, and co-marketed by Lantronix) showcases our technology solutions in a finished product that has relevance across dozens of industries and government — from serious business applications to just plain cool consumer products. Speaking of cool, the ZANO drone is facing tough competition from the PremierWave-powered robot (could there be a “Lantronix robot wars” in the making?)

Demo of Torguing’s Zano Drone using Lantronix xPico Wi-Fi module  Demo of robot using Lantronix Premierwave EN Wi-Fi module

With thousands of design engineers milling about, we’ve been going a little deeper with demonstrations of how customers can rapidly provision (on the factory floor), integrate with the cloud and handheld devices, and deploy into market.

Konica Minolta Taps xPrintServer to Enable Easy Mobile Printing

Going mobile can be advantageous for the business user – and there’s no reason why that can’t extend to printing! We’re pleased to announce that Konica Minolta has added our xPrintServer – Cloud Print Edition to its EnvisionIT portfolio to help users improve business productivity. With xPrintServer, Konica Minolta customers can now wirelessly and securely print documents from their Android and Google Cloud Print-ready devices to any Konica Minolta bizhub MFP without installing special software or apps. It really is that simple!

Konica MinoltaAdded Kevin Kern, senior VP of Marketing at Konica Minolta Business Solutions, “With businesses embracing BYOD, it’s imperative that users have access to mobile printing directly from the devices they use the most. Solutions such as the xPrintServer are designed to support the needs of today’s mobile users without sacrificing data security, ensuring that confidential information is protected.”

We couldn’t agree more. For additional details, see the article on Marketwired: “Konica Minolta Grows Mobile Print Solutions With Lantronix xPrintServer“.

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.

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.

Example of an ambulance drone delivering a defibrillator to a patient in need of urgent care.

If you’re heading to CES 2015 in Las Vegas next month, be sure to check us out – we’ll be partnering with Torquing Group to unveil the ZANO drone – a perfect example of how Lantronix’ smart connectivity and mobility solutions are enabling the Internet of Things.

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 Logo

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.
