Irvine, CA; Salt Lake City, UT— Lantronix and emWare Inc. recently formed a partnership to cross-license software, hardware and services, and create solutions allowing virtually any device to be accessed, monitored and managed via the Internet. These solutions will help Internet users manage remote devices and extract and analyze real time data.

The two firms add that bringing together their expertise also will help customers deploy complete, end-to-end device management solutions in minimal time and with no upfront infrastructure investment. Their agreement calls on Lantronix and emWare to jointly develop, market and sell comprehensive device management solutions based on Lantronix's device server technology and emWare's DeviceView software and services. They report that the combined Lantronix and emWare offering will deliver immediate and long-range benefits to organizations with service operations by providing an easy-to-install, cost-effective solution to access, monitor and maintain equipment in remote locations. Their joint device management solution will:

  • Allow service technicians in a central location to determine the status and operating conditions of remote equipment located anywhere in the world;

  • Predict failures of remote equipment before they occur; and

  • Reduce dispatch errors by diagnosing exact problems, and determining replacement parts requirements before dispatching a service technician.

'The world wide web was the Internet's first killer application. The next key application will be connecting and managing millions of non-computer devices through the Internet. By working together we have made it easy to deploy M2M solutions and have extended our offerings to include the service necessary for a complete solution,' says Marc Nussbaum, Lantronix's president and CEO. 'Partnering with emWare brings two very well respected industry players together for the purpose of creating immediate remote management total solutions.'

Michael Nelson, emWare's CEO, adds that, 'Partnering with Lantronix continues emWare's strategy to provide the most powerful enterprise M2M solutions for connecting and managing remote machines and equipment. Now that companies are beginning to realize the enormous amounts of money that can be saved through service optimization, we are very pleased to be working alongside Lantronix, which shares our vision of providing the most solid and cost-effective M2M remote device management solutions available today.'
