Lantronix, Taoglas And Thales Team Up To Deliver 5G IoT Solutions 


Lantronix, a global provider of secure turnkey solutions for intelligent IT and Internet of Things (IoT); Taoglas, a leading provider of advanced technology for a smarter world; and Thales, a global leader in advanced technologies and designer and builder of IoT connectivity solutions, announced their collaboration.

Their combined expertise aims to deliver application-specific smart industrial IoT solutions to connect data-dependent vertical industries, including Industrial 4.0, Security and Transport markets.

On display at Mobile World Congress at the Taoglas booth, Number 5E32, the Lantronix G520 Series smart cellular IoT devices feature the Taoglas Guardian MA963 antenna and Thales MV31 Ultra High Speed 5G M.2 Modem Card to deliver complete, integrated smart industrial IoT gateway solutions on which users can depend for reliability, compatibility and resilience.

“Spearheading collaboration for the digital transformation of IoT solutions for Industrial 4.0, Security and Transport applications, Taoglas, Lantronix and Thales have collaborated to create a fully integrated gateway solution that gives users peace of mind that their systems will stay live even in harsh environments,” said Paul Pickle, CEO of Lantronix.

“In today’s highly technical environment, collaboration is the key to developing reliable solutions to power connectivity-dependent industries. Our collaborations with Lantronix and Thales help avoid common pitfalls that fail in IoT implementations by ensuring inter-connectivity, high-level security features and 24/7 uptime,” said Oliver Robin, GM and SVP of Taoglas Advanced Components business unit.

“The Thales partnership with Lantronix and Taoglas enables speedy and secure 5G cellular connectivity, designed for the needs of critical industries like Industry 4.0, Security and Transport Applications,” said Francis D’Souza, head of Portfolio Management IoT at Thales. “Our award-winning Cinterion MV31 IoT Modem Card delivers high-performance 5G enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) and supports fast data speeds with 4G fallback. This means very low latency, higher throughput, and a 5G connectivity solution specifically made for the IoT.”

The Lantronix G520 series allows users to connect all their controllers, even if they are using legacy equipment of different ages and brands. A single gateway device facilitates reliable connections with less hardware and delivers access to more meaningful data.

Key 5G benefits include lower latency, enabling real-time application, such as augmented and virtual reality; higher capacity, enabling more devices to concurrently be online; and higher speeds, allowing data to move faster and more easily over 5 Gbps.

According to Berg Insight, global cellular IoT device shipments increased by 14 per cent in 2020 to reach 302.7 million units and are forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.8 per cent to reach 629.6 million units by 2025.
