Lanner Partners with Zededa to Demonstrate Industrial-Strength Cloud-Managed Gateway at the IoT Tech Expo 2018
The joint partnership announces a secure, cloud-managed gateway solution ready for deployment in critical infrastructures, such as power substations, manufacturing, transportation, intelligent buildings and smart cities.
Lanner Electronics, Inc. (https://www.lanner-america.com), a global leader in design and manufacturing of network appliances and industrial IoT gateways, will be demonstrating a joint solution with Zededa at the IoT Tech Expo in Santa Clara, Nov. 28-29, 2018. Zededa has developed an innovative cloud-managed software solution which provisions, administers and secures IIoT infrastructures. The joint solution of Lanners validated white-box gateway integrated with the Zededa real-time software is developed to enable interoperability and connectivity on both hardware and software levels in industrial automation, energy and retail applications.
Since 2013, Lanner has introduced a series of industrial gateway products designed for key applications, such as cyber security, edge computing, wireless connectivity and SD-WAN. The LEC-6041 is the latest platform in this series: It is powered by Intel Atom x7-E3950 or x5-E3930 for low power consumption and enhanced processing performance, the LEC-6041 ensures fault-tolerant network connection with Lanners exclusive LAN Bypass technology and protects the device identity with crypto-security in the TPM 2.0 hardware design.
To ensure operation inside harsh factory conditions, as well as electrical energy substations, the LEC-6041 is compliant with IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 certification, by equipping 1.5 KV magnetic isolation protection for all LAN ports and 15KV ESD Protection for the I/O ports. The system can operate in a wide range of operating temperature from -40°C to 75°C. These features work together to assure maximum uptime while operating in hazardous surroundings such as OT environments. "To ensure our Industrial IoT customers receive the best solution, Lanner is providing a robust, purpose-built gateway based on previous generations of successful appliances deployed around the world", said Tim Casto, Business Development Manager of LEI Technology, a division of Lanner Electronics. "Combined with Zededas exceptional edge management software, the LEC-6041 provides a compact, industrial-grade platform designed to last many years in harsh conditions".
Lanners joint offering with Zededa provides customers a complete cloud-managed gateway solution and offers them a central dashboard to manage their entire global device deployment through any web browser. Features like zero touch provisioning and 1-click updates simplify administrative tasks, while Zededas zero-trust security model ensures device integrity in even the most remote locations.
"As more data generating activities occur at the edge, organizations are going to increasingly need to move compute and processing power closer to those activities, resulting in a massive ecosystem of distributed hardware, and creating complexities to manage and secure those devices," said Said Ouissal, CEO of Zededa. "By leveraging Lanner and Zededas joint solution, customers can remotely manage their entire edge hardware footprint, right out of the box, and be confident that at any point they have the visibility and control at the edge necessary to ensure their devices are secure, up-to-date, and operating as expected."
