Lantronix(R) SLB(TM) Eliminates Branch Office Downtime With Real-Time Visibility and Control Over Remote IT Equipment Globally

Next-Generation SLB Now Available in Europe and Asia; Enterprise Users Improve Customer Response Time, Reduce IT Management Costs, and Maximize Productivity

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Lantronix, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading global provider of smart IoT (Internet of Things) solutions, today announced the launch of the SLB8824 (220V), a next-generation Lantronix® SLB™ branch office manager which supports 200-240 VAC, 50/60Hz and is available in Europe and Asia. The SLB8824 (220V) is the latest expansion of the Lantronix SLB product line of integrated secure console server and power management appliances, which enable IT administrators to securely manage remote servers and IT infrastructure equipment quickly and easily over the Internet. It has the same features and functionality as the 110V version of the next generation SLB (the SLB8822), which is currently available in North America.

"Today more than ever, the need to keep IT equipment operational 24/7 is critical to our success, and more importantly, the success of our customers," said Marcel Stegmuller, owner of Stegmuller Datentechnik IT-system house -- a systems integrator focused on the design and implementation of state-of-the-art server, storage, and security solutions. "Every day, we help businesses fight cybercrime and reduce risk thanks to Lantronix and their suite of feature-rich, out-of-band IT management solutions. The ability to remotely access, control and manage massive and highly-distributed networks of IT equipment is critical, and the new Lantronix SLB is an ideal complement to our security and compliance solutions."

"In the public sector, all eyes are on security. There is tremendous pressure to increase process efficiency and reduce costs, while ensuring IT equipment and related solutions are bullet proof from a security perspective," said Ed Floyd, Vendor Alliance Manager for EnNet -- a leading supplier of IT solutions and services to public sector entities. "Private sector businesses and public sector entities with remote and branch office locations are especially vulnerable to office downtime, which can result in lost revenue and productivity. The new Lantronix SLB provides easy-to-use, real time visibility and control that IT professionals require for their critical infrastructure management challenges."

The Lantronix SLB - Branch Office Management
The Lantronix SLB branch office manager enables administrators to easily and securely manage remote servers and IT infrastructure equipment over the LAN or the Internet. This innovative hybrid device combines the capabilities of the Company's award-winning Lantronix SLC™ console manager along with remote power management into a compact, 1U rack-mountable appliance. The Lantronix SLB is compatible with Lantronix' SLM™ central management appliance and vSLM™ software, which allow for central management, control and configuration of attached devices.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace.
WebRTC adoption has generated a wave of creative uses of communications and collaboration through websites, sales apps, customer care and business applications.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Graham Holt, Executive Vice President of Daitan Group, will cover implementation examples that have enabled ea...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
