    3. For IMAG Technologies, which needed to establish Ethernet connectivity for its products with Bluetooth wireless data communication technology, the simple integration and compact size of the Xport Edge modules helped save months of development and enabled the company to outpace competitors when entering new markets.

    The mentioned company is one of the few providers of communication equipment with Bluetooth technology, IP addressability, and RS-232 interface, enabling data transmission through walls, floors, ceilings, and between buildings up to a distance of 100 meters. This significantly reduces installation costs and time, leading logically to increased profits. 

    They aimed to offer their end users the option of a cost-effective upgrade to their existing equipment. Lantronix XPort™ facilitated this by providing a complete solution for network connectivity in a compact and rugged package with an RJ45 port, without the need for complex addition of serial-Ethernet connections. It can be integrated into most products within a few weeks, reducing development time and substantially lowering the investment required. 

    According to Doug Stevens, Director of Sales and Marketing, they chose Lantronix XPort because it offered a simple and cost-effective way to add network connectivity to their product. The compact format of XPort also allowed them to reduce the size of their product, setting them apart significantly from their competition in new markets.
