Innovative IoT lighting and connectivity solutions from Lantronix. Lantronix is a long-time player in the Internet of Things and Intelligent IT marketplace and announced in January IoT lighting and connectivity solutions at BICSI Winter 2023.
The offerings included new products listed below.
- Smart managed Gigabit Ethernet PoE++ Layer 2 Switch (SM24TBT2DPB)
- The first UL-Certified switch with true 24×90 watt power along with direct high-voltage DC power. The switch complies with the latest IEEE 802.3bt PoE++ standards and 52 Gbps switching capacity. This switch can be powered by low-line and high-line AC or DC power. It can also be powered by Digital electricity from VoltServer, making it ideal for smart building applications.
- LS Series
- A new series of Layer 2 Hardened Gigabit Ethernet PoE++ switches. These switches offer a 720W total PoE budget made for powering LED lighting. They are also well-suited for high-powered security, surveillance cameras, and other types of IP devices.
- The small size and hardened temperature rating make this switch a contender for placement in multiple locations throughout buildings.
- This a new series of layer 3 (L) hardened Gigabit Ethernet PoE switches offering powerful Layer 2 and 3 features. The units also offer a performance that meets demands for Smart City, Utility, Security Transportation as well as surveillance solutions.
- G250 Series
- This is Lantronix’s IoT Cellular LTE CAT 4 and 5G gateways that the company calls next-generation. There is a cellular industrial protocol converter router, also, with LTE communication, and multiple interfaces. There are the Fieldbus protocol conversions that include Modbus, DNP3, IEC, and others, that can be provisioned in minutes with ConsoleFlow, a platform device management system from Lantronix, and the cellular Connectivity Services cloud platform applications. The accompanying systems are meant to increase efficiency and stop cyberattacks.
The PoE marketplace is projected to increase from 175.7 million in 2021 up to 279.6 million in 2026. This will comprise 47% of switch port shipments, by 2026. That is according to the Dell’Oro Group in a recent report. Lantronix is also predicting that higher-power capacity PoE ports, at greater than 30 watts per port, will become more widespread. This will be in response to supporting new devices such as security cameras, LED lighting, network-attached storage, power gateways, automation, and industrial control systems.
