New York's Largest Independent Technology Retailer to Offer iPad and iPhone Mobile Printing Solution at Retail and Online Channels for Upcoming Holiday Season

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- Lantronix (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading global provider of smart M2M connectivity solutions, today announced that it has signed a sales and marketing partnership with New York-based DataVision Computer Video for its award-winning, patent-pending xPrintServer™ family, the first line of Apple iOS® print server appliances compatible with the iPad2, iPad®, iPhone®, iPod® Touch, and virtually any device running Apple's iOS mobile operating system.

"Apple and Apple-related products are among our top sellers, especially during the upcoming Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the overall holiday season," said Albert Liniado, President of DataVision Computer Video. "We are constantly being asked, by both consumer and business customers, about printing solutions for the iPad and iPhone -- and thus far, only the Lantronix xPrintServer fits the bill. It's slick and performs exceptionally well, and its ease of set up and use should be a hit with our customers."

The partnership agreement provides for the xPrintServer family of products to be promoted and offered for sale on DataVision's website, print catalogs, online advertisements, email promotions, and on signage and end-cap displays in its flagship retail store.

"DataVision is an ideal partner for our xPrintServer, and for practically every Lantronix product," said Mark D. Tullio, vice president of worldwide marketing for Lantronix. "We have just kicked off an aggressive global marketing push to build awareness of the Lantronix brand, and securing partnerships with market-leading resellers such as DataVision is a key component to the strategy. Their reach into both consumers and IT professionals should prove invaluable, and the positioning of our xPrintServer in retail side by side with iPads and iPhones should serve to rapidly build brand and drive sales."

The xPrintServer: Open it. Plug it in. Print!
The xPrintServer Family is an easy-to-use hardware solution that utilizes the iOS native print menu and requires no additional applications, software downloads, or printer driver installations. With automatic printer discovery and no configuration, printing is hassle-free.

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Digital innovation is the next big wave of business transformation based on digital technologies of which IoT and Big Data are key components, For example: Business boundary innovation is a challenge to excavate third-party business value using IoT and BigData, like Nest Business structure innovation may propose re-building business structure from scratch, as Uber does in the taxicab industry The social model innovation is also a big challenge to the new social architecture with the design fr...
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
Businesses are struggling to manage the information flow and interactions between all of these new devices and things jumping on their network, and the apps and IT systems they control. The data businesses gather is only helpful if they can do something with it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Witeck, Principal Technology Strategist at Citrix, will discuss how different the impact of IoT will be for large businesses, expanding how IoT will allow large organizations to make their legacy ap...

The use of standardized and TCP/IP networked wireless technologies in line-powered and battery operated sensors and controls has led to the adoption of radios in the 2.4GHz band, including Wi-Fi, BT/BLE and 802.15.4 applied ZigBee and Thread. This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
