New Embedded Smart Modems Bring Cellular Communication to the IoT (.PDF Download)

Enabling Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity is a specialty of Digi International, which was formed in 1985 long before the term “IoT” even existed. Among the company’s products are Digi XBee RF solutions, which support a number of wireless applications. Digi recently made news by expanding its XBee lineup with the introduction of three new cellular modems (see photo).

The new cellular smart modems are the Digi XBee Cellular LTE Cat 1, Digi XBee Cellular LTE-M, and Digi XBee Cellular NB-IoT. According to Digi, the new modems allow original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to easily integrate cellular connectivity into their devices. Building on the Digi XBee ecosystem, these new products allow the Digi XBee platform to support an even greater number of wireless applications.
