Lantronix Launches XPort Pro, World's Smallest Linux Networking Server
IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - October 12, 2009) - Lantronix, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading provider of secure, remote management, device networking and data center management technologies, today announced XPort® Pro™, the newest addition to its popular XPort® family of embedded Ethernet networking and compute modules, used in millions of devices worldwide. XPort Pro provides customers with a powerful engine for deploying advanced applications at the network edge, all in an integrated, thumb-sized package.
In addition to having the identical form factor as the original XPort, the XPort Pro's leading-edge architecture, 32-bit processing power and ample memory allow resource-intensive applications to be deployed on a single platform. Advanced networking and security features enable machine-to-machine (M2M) edge computing with unlimited customization and application hosting, providing developers with faster time-to-market and unprecedented application development options.
"Our vision is to revolutionize machine networking by creating a state-of-the-art platform that allows smart services and other sophisticated applications to run on edge devices," said Jerry Chase, CEO of Lantronix.
XPort Pro is available running Linux and IPv6, bringing the product to a global community and providing Linux developers with a tiny, powerful compute platform, along with an industry standard development environment. XPort Pro is also available with the feature rich, Evolution OS™ turnkey operating system and software development kit. This product also includes Lantronix' patent-pending VIP (Virtual IP) Access™ technology, which allows seamless integration with the company's ManageLinx™ remote services enablement platform.
"A lot of time, effort and expense go into the iterative process of designing and testing of an embedded compute and networking platform. XPort Pro considerably simplifies this task, in many cases eliminating the need for other processors," said Daryl Miller, VP of Engineering at Lantronix. "With Linux on board as well, developers can focus on their core competencies to bring a product to market quickly, without having to learn a new operating system and development environment. Integrating ManageLinx VIP Access™ in the product makes it easy for designers to create solutions that work behind firewalls without the need for a VPN. We are excited about the broad range of applications made possible with XPort Pro."
XPort Pro provides over five times the processing power, and 32 times the memory of its predecessor. It also features SSH and SSL security and encryption, and supports a variety of protocol conversions.
XPort Pro will be available in October 2009. Lantronix is offering free XPort Pro evaluation kits to qualified customers, for a limited time.
