Lantronix, Inc. announced availability of MACH10 Global Device Manager, a ready-to-use industrial IoT application designed to enable OEMs and system integrators to deploy lifecycle management of their connected devices at scale.

“We’re excited to announce the commercial availability of our first IoT management software product offering, MACH10 Global Device Manager,” said Jeff Benck, president and CEO of Lantronix. “With Global Device Manager, OEMs and systems integrators now have the ability to quickly deliver robust and secure web-scale device management for their IoT devices.”

A June 2017 Gartner study stated that tools that were not designed for IoT management may have many limitations and will only be suitable for a small proportion of things and lifecycles and recommended selecting tools designed specifically for IoT management. The study stated that examples of companies that have management tools developed specifically for IoT applications included Lantronix.

“Tech Data is excited to extend the Lantronix MACH10 solution to our IoT partners. The MACH10 platform offers the agility, flexibility, and scale needed for integrating into industrial environments,” Michelle Curtis, director of Tech Data’s IoT Practice for North America.

Based on the company’s multi-dimensional MACH10 IoT platform, Global Device Manager enables OEMs and system integrators to remotely monitor and manage their installed base of devices. Integration with MACH10 Global Device Manager is done through simple REST API calls, eliminating the need for learning additional programming languages or any porting. Running maintenance operations – from custom configurations to firmware updates to equipment resets and reboots – is as easy as few mouse clicks, whether it’s one machine in a remote building or thousands of machines distributed across the globe. MACH10 Global Device Manager’s sophisticated multi-dimensional features allow OEMs and systems integrators to create custom portals that provide secure multi-user and role-based access while keeping customers’ devices, applications and data separate, secure, and private.
