Lantronix, emWare Remotely Manage and Service Devices Located Anywhere

9/16/2003 - LantronixTM (Nasdaq: LTRX) and emWare® Inc., announced that emWare will begin selling a new solution that integrates Lantronix’ UDS Device Servers with emWare’s DeviceViewTM Remote Device Management Software, delivering a complete, secure solution for remotely monitoring, managing and controlling virtually any type of device located anywhere in the world. By enabling Lantronix UDS Device Servers to communicate with emWare’s DeviceView Service, the high costs and long development cycles normally associated with network infrastructure development, device integration and deployment have been eliminated. The resulting solution enables service organizations to immediately reduce the cost of servicing and maintaining equipment located over widespread areas by using remote management capabilities.

emWare’s DeviceView Service is a secure, hosted Remote Device Management system that allows companies to exchange information with their equipment anywhere in the world, while Lantronix’ UDS Device Servers allow serial-based devices to be quickly and easily connected to IP-based Ethernet networks. In the combined solution, the UDS Device Servers communicate with the DeviceView Service to exchange device information, which is then stored in a database for later retrieval using DeviceView’s Web-based enterprise service management application. Service technicians can access this information to determine the operational status of the remote equipment and take appropriate action if the equipment falls outside acceptable levels of operation. The DeviceView Service also monitors this information and can notify the appropriate personnel when an alert condition exists on their equipment.

Reduces Service Costs
The combined Lantronix and emWare solution delivers immediate and long-range benefits to organizations with service operations by cost-effectively accessing, monitoring and maintaining equipment in remote locations. Key capabilities include:

“This joint solution presents a tremendous opportunity for customers looking to make an immediate impact on their service costs,” said Marc Nussbaum, president and chief executive officer of Lantronix. “emWare customers can leverage this robust yet cost-effective solution to connect their strategic devices and equipment to the network where they can be remotely managed.”

“emWare is very pleased to be able to offer this new solution to customers interested in making immediate improvements in the way they currently service and manage devices that are located in the field” said Michael D. Nelson, CEO and co-founder of emWare, Inc. “By integrating our DeviceView Service with Lantronix’ industry-leading device connectivity technology, nowhere will you find a more solid or affordable solution for servicing your remote equipment.”
