Lantronix launches 3.5G wireless solution for connecting remote devices and mobile equipment

London, UKLantronix, Inc., a global provider of smart networking and communications solutions for M2M applications, has announced the launch and availability of the PremierWave® XC HSPA+ (3.5G) device, an intelligent high speed gateway and application server. 

Designed for easy mobile and remote device connectivity with rapid application development and deployment, the latest addition to the PremierWave family boasts leading-edge 3.5G mobile technology and brings M2M connectivity to devices and equipment, previously unable to be connected through wired or Wi-Fi solutions.

The PremierWave XC family is designed for applications in a variety of vertical markets including telematics, industrial automation, healthcare, energy and utilities. The product enables remote access and management of virtually any serial equipment or device through the use of the Lantronix® device server application suite and optional custom programming environment. Additionally, the PremierWave family is critical for applications deployed in areas that do not have an ethernet or wi-fi infrastructure, or for installations that have such connectivity but rely on mobile for failover backup, ensuring redundancy.


PremierWave XC HSPA+ highlights:

  • Penta-band UMTX/HSPA+
  • Quad-band GSM/GRPS/EDGE
  • Ethernet-to-mobile routing
  • Ethernet-to-mobile failover and failback
  • SMS: shoulder tap, relay control, event notification, and tunnelling
  • Dual network connectivity (wired ethernet and mobile) for flexibility and redundancy
  • Unique design for quick and easy connectivity to virtually any device with a serial port
  • Extended temperature range for industrial applications
  • 5-Year limited warranty


“Our business relies on our ability to monitor, manage, and control all equipment, in real time. This is especially true for those devices and machines housed in either extremely remote locations around the world, or highly-confined areas within buildings and remote structures, where current market solutions such as wired ethernet or even wi-fi cannot address,” said Roy Moore, CEO of Fluid Measurement, Inc. “Lantronix’ new mobile solution is exactly what’s needed to solve both issues, given its 3G+ capabilities, industrial-grade design, ethernet-to-mobile routing, and enterprise level security.  We look forward to a seamless and successful roll-out.”

“Axeda and Lantronix share the same core principle for M2M – customers need to deploy their solutions quickly and easily .  Our engineers have worked together to offer the PremierWave XC HSPA+ Intelligent Gateway as ‘Axeda Ready’, allowing our customers to enjoy a proven M2M hardware solution coupled with the flexibility and power of the Axeda M2M platform,” said Joe Biron, Vice President for technology and innovation at Axeda, a provider for cloud-based services and software for managing connected product and machines.

“Our solutions must withstand the harshest marine environment – from deep sea wind gusts and heavy rains to large swings in temperature to highly volatile environments.  As such, product ruggedness, feature robustness and reliability are a must,” said Paul Wartnaby, Director at Offshore Ops Ltd., a UK and South Africa-based company specialising in software and hardware solutions for terminal, salvage and bunker operations.  “Given its 3G+ capabilities, industrial-grade design and enterprise level security, Lantronix’ new mobile solution is exactly what’s needed to solve communication issues where local wireless regulators restrict effective wireless links.  We are pleased to include the HSPA+ XC as an integral part of our system.”

“The launch of the new PremierWave XC HSPA+ furthers our strategy of utilising the convergence of mobility and M2M systems, expands our mobile offering, and greatly extends our mobile market reach – enabling us to capitalise on what is one of the fastest growing segments in M2M,” said Kurt Busch, President and CEO for Lantronix.  “With new channels in place, and a design that provides a seamless migration path as carriers bring next generation solutions to market, we look forward to PremierWave’s success in this rapidly growing market.”

First remote patient monitoring system claimed for bladder dysfunction uses cellular IoT

Posted on: June 2, 2020

Until now, taking accurate bladder function measurements was both a labour-intensive and notoriously inaccurate process. It involved patients voiding (passing urine) into a large top hat-like plastic bucket (called a ‘commode hat’) and keeping manual logs of volume, time, and frequency. A compact and portable battery-powered handheld device promises to revolutionise the sector.
