Device Server and Network OS

"Bridging the gap between M2M networks and enterprise computing is essential to advancing and realizing the full business potential of M2M applications," says Glen Allmendinger, president and CEO of Harbor Research.

Now Lantronix, Inc. (, provider of device networking and data center management solutions, has announced its new XPort Architect (AR) embedded processor module to fill that gap. Lantronix claims this is an industry first. Designed to connect devices with secure business and control applications, the XPort AR takes advantage of the same data transport and security mechanisms adopted by IT professionals. This release extends the Lantronix XPort line to applications requiring increased on-module intelligence and customization.

The XPort AR module includes a complete embedded computer, an Ethernet 10/100 interface, and an onboard network operating system and Web server in a package the size of two sugar cubes. XPort AR can be used as a device's central processing unit (CPU), allowing developers to add their own device-specific intelligence through an Application Programming Interface (API). The Power over Ethernet (PoE) pass-through feature eliminates power cables to the device, and according to Lantronix, makes XPort AR the first fully IEEE PoE standards-compliant embedded device server module.
