Digi Launches All-in-One 3G Cellular Router with Wi-Fi, GPS, Telemetry and Enterprise-Class Security

New Digi TransPort™ WR44 provides high-speed networking for mobile hotspots, remote payment processing, remote office and other remote networking applications

MINNETONKA, Minn. (Oct. 13, 2009) - Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) today introduced the Digi TransPort WR44, an all-in-one enterprise-class cellular router with integrated Wi-Fi access point. The multi-function Digi TransPort WR44 provides high-speed connectivity to remote devices by combining a 3G cellular router, state-of-the-art security, advanced routing, an Ethernet switch, global positioning system (GPS), telemetry and Wi-Fi access point all in one device. This unique combination of enterprise-class features and flexible wireless functionality makes the router ideal for connecting remote devices in vertical applications such as transportation, remote office and retail point-of-sale.

“Industry-specific devices have special requirements that often cannot be satisfied with classic IT infrastructure,” said Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Digi International. “The Digi Transport WR44 has all the functionality of enterprise-class routers but with a vertically focused feature set designed for specific industry applications such as transportation, public safety, remote office, retail and financial.”

The Digi TransPort WR44 can be used as a mobile hotspot in transportation applications such as in public safety vehicles, or on a bus, train, van or ship. It is also ideal for providing both primary and back-up connectivity to remote office networks. High-end security features also make the product perfect for point-of-sale applications such as remote payment processing within a Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) approved network.

The Digi TransPort WR44 features diverse power options, multiple mounting options, a rugged design, local scripting, advanced dynamic routing, state-of-the-art security and firewall features including stateful packet inspection and integrated IPSec VPN. Enterprise-class protocols incorporate BGP, OSPF and VRRP+, a patented technology built upon the popular VRRP failover standard providing true auto sensing, auto failure and auto recovery of any line drop.

Digi TransPort WR44 is a multifunction router with flexibility for industry-specific device connectivity options. Various configurations are available including multiple serial ports (async or sync), GPS or I/O telemetry modules, a USB port and a four-port Ethernet switch. Additionally, the Digi Transport WR44 can be fully managed using Digi’s Remote Manager software for easy setup, configuration and maintenance of large installations. It also features a best-in-class 5-year warranty.
