Lantronix to showcase EMG-Edge management gateway at Cisco Live at MWC

24 January 2020

Lantronix provider of secure data access and management solutions for the industrial Internet of Things (IoT), will showcase its Edge Management Gateway EMG8500 Out-of-Band Management (OOBM) solutions this week at booth 21C at Cisco Live in Barcelona, Spain, from Jan. 26–31, 2020.

Showcased at Cisco Live will be Lantronix’s Edge Management Gateway (EMG8500), which the company says delivers the same  quality, scalability and functionality as current Lantronix console servers but now in a smaller modular form factor.

With its compact size and modular design, the EMG8500 enables users to place the product where it is most effective, alongside critical infrastructure in data centres, branch offices, retail locations and remote sites. Its smaller size is perfect for applications with limited space and where high-density consoles would be excessive.

The EMG8500 is designed to address business continuity needs by providing remote access and administration for unmanned sites, branch offices, retail stores and intermediate distribution frames (IDF’s) where OOBM is a necessity. It delivers remote troubleshooting, increases resilience and improves remediation times to ensure the uptime and efficiency of networks, keeping businesses running smoothly.

As part of the Lantronix OOBM family, the EMG8500 gateway operates on the Lantronix on-premises and cloud-based management platform, ConsoleFlow™. It offers a single pane of glass for centralized management and automated monitoring with real-time notifications and mobile access from any iOS® or Android™ platform to provide secure access to the customer’s IT equipment.

Lantronix will also display its modular SLC8000 advanced console manager and the SLB remote branch office manager, which are designed to reduce deployment and management complexity and costs while maximizing IT infrastructure uptime. The solutions provide secure OOBM to enable IT personnel of any-size enterprise to remotely monitor, manage and troubleshoot equipment from anywhere while maintaining access to their critical equipment, even during network outages via secondary dial-up or cellular connections.
