Lantronix, Inc., a provider of smart M2M connectivity services, on Tuesday announced the launch of its new PremierWave-XN, an 802.11n dual-band, multi-port serial device server, offering both WiFi and Ethernet connectivity – enabling remote access and easy management of devices or equipment over the network and across the internet.
PremierWave-XN, roughly the size of a standard deck of playing cards, can securely transmit vital data across company networks and the internet to virtually any device, machine, or person, says Lantronix (Nuremberg, Germany).
“More and more industries, from medical to government, are tasking manufacturers with specific and ambitious product requirements in order to match their advanced infrastructure configuration and needs,” says Ed Davis, CEO for Intelligent Power Corporation, a Portland, Oregon-based provider of power-based products.
PremierWave-XN provides control of serial communication on connected devices and allows for data globally available. Additionally, Lantronix’ proprietary Secure ComPort Redirector virtualization software allows existing serial port applications to work without modifications.
Existing products with an Ethernet interface can be made WiFi-compatible with the bridging capability of the PremierWave-XN; particularly in industrial environments where a wide operating temperature range is required.
PremierWave-XN includes: 802.11n, which provides increased wireless speed, improved reliability and extended transmission range in 2.4GHz or 5GHz; Lantronix SmartRoam technology, which provides mobile connectivity and improved reliability; and enterprise-level security options, including AES, SSL, SSH and EAP for data encryption and authentication.
