Flexible Mobile Ready Wi-Fi – temperature sensor to serial to Wi-Fi
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly expanding, and consumers now expect devices to communicate with each other and the wider world via the internet, instantaneously. Connecting devices to the cloud can open up many exciting new revenue opportunities. IoT enablement can also act as a product differentiator that can reduce device support costs and help you stay ahead of competitors.
Along with device hardware, building a typical IoT solution requires application software for connectivity, security, web server and user interface, data handling and tunnelling, API and services, standards and certifications.
Projects often need to be deployed quickly, time to market expectations are shrinking, often with fewer design engineers available and smaller design teams. Keeping current with the latest standards and trends is increasingly difficult.
The Lantronix Embedded IoT Gateway solution such as the xPico Wi-Fi is the ideal solution to provide a faster start-to-finish product without the pain, taking away the need to think the whole design component by component.
Lantronix’s xPico Wi-Fi, one of the world’s smallest and most flexible Wi-Fi device servers, is a pin and form factor compatible state-of-the-art member of the xPico family. Providing low power, Soft AP and simultaneous client mode, full IP and WLAN stacks, the xPico Wi-Fi is a complete device server suitable for mobile M2M/IoT applications and includes industry-best 5-year warranty.
With more than 4 million devices connected worldwide, Lantronix are a leading provider of IoT enablement solutions that simplify remote access, management and control of virtually any electronic device, regardless of location. They strive to be the leading supplier of IoT gateways that enable companies to dramatically simplify the creation, deployment, and management of IoT projects while providing secure access to data for applications and people.
Lantronix helps companies to connect smart and do more.

What can the Lantronix embedded solution do for me?
IoT gateways perform several critical functions such as device connectivity, protocol translation, data filtering and processing, security, updating, management and more. Newer IoT gateways also operate as platforms for application code that processes data and becomes an intelligent part of a device-enabled system. Smart IoT gateways, also referred to as ‘intelligent gateways’, are full-fledged computing platforms running modern operating systems.
