Digi Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against Lantronix

8/16/2004 - Lantronix, Inc. (Nasdaq: LTRX) announced that it has been served with a patent infringement lawsuit filed by Digi International, Inc. The suit, filed in the U.S. Federal District Court in Minnesota, states that Lantronix is infringing upon Digi’s U.S. Patent No. 6,446,192 B1 (“’192 patent”) entitled “Remote Monitoring and Control of Equipment Over Computer Networks Using a Single Web Interfacing Chip.” The ‘192 patent describes an interface apparatus that allows a device to communicate over a computer network to a client computer.

“Lantronix has a long-standing reputation as a first-to-market leader in networking solutions,” said Lantronix CEO Marc Nussbaum. “Our history of innovation dates to our founding in 1989, when we introduced the first print server, to last year, when we launched XPort, the world’s first and smallest web-enabled device networking solution. More recently, this past month we started shipment of WiPort, the industry’s first wireless and wired networking-enabled solution. Our success in delivering first-to-market solutions has made us a highly visible target for competitors seeking to cash in or limit Lantronix’s ability to gain market share. We believe the claims are without merit and we intend to vigorously defend our position.”
