Real-time management and monitoring of distributed sites improve operational efficiency and increase uptime, helping stores grow revenues
IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 17, 2021 — Lantronix Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a global provider of secure turnkey solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), provides an all-in-one connectivity solution that delivers real-time management and monitoring of distributed retail sites and pop-up stores, improving operational efficiency and increases uptime, helping stores grow revenues.
“Controlling the connectivity at small retail stores and pop-up sites can be daunting. With networks increasingly deploying IT infrastructure in remote locations and data is collected closer to its source, there’s a greater need to remotely monitor and manage the equipment from a central location,” said Jacques Issa, VP of Marketing at Lantronix Inc.
“Lantronix’s all-in-one solution provides a secure connection through a secondary interface that is physically separate from the primary network connection, enabling troubleshooting and remediation at the edge to be quickly addressed to avoid a catastrophic network failure,” he added.
According to Gartner’s 2020 Gartner Market Guide for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics, 50 percent of network operations teams will be required to rearchitect their network monitoring stack due to the impact of hybrid networking by 2024 (including edge and cloud monitoring). The report recommends that users future-proof their network monitoring solutions by investing in tools that provide the required level of visibility into hybrid environments including edge and cloud monitoring. Prospective buyers of monitoring tools must improve alignment between network and security operations by coordinating NPMD procurement decisions with security analytics.
