How to Buy

Digi Connect WAN cellular routing gateways provide secure high-speed wireless connectivity to remote sites and devices. These products can be used for reliable primary wireless network connectivity to equipment at remote locations, as well as for a backup to existing landline communications. The Digi Connect WAN family is also ideal for use where wired networks are not feasible, or where alternative network connections are required. Applications include new construction locations, industrial automation, power utility substations, retail/POS sites, railroad, temporary facilities without primary wired connections, and many more.

The Device Cloud platform as a service provides integration of web and mobile applications via application programming interfaces (APIs), while providing the required reliability and security infrastructure to elastically scale.

Digi Connect WAN cellular routers provide secure high-speed wireless connectivity via GSM (GPRS/EDGE/HSPA+) or CDMA (1xRTT/EV-DO Rev. A) networks to remote sites and devices. These products can be used for reliable primary wireless network connectivity to equipment at remote locations, as well as for a backup to existing landline communications. The Digi Connect WAN family is also ideal for use where wired networks are not feasible, or where alternative network connections are required.

Digi Connect WAN products provide a primary Wireless WAN connection to remote sites containing Ethernet and/or serial devices. Applications include new construction locations, industrial automation, power utility substations, retail/POS sites, railroad, temporary facilities without primary wired connections, and many more. Benefits of implementing a remote device management solution with the Digi Connect WAN family include instant deployment, elimination of wiring costs and problems due to wire breaks, the ability to traverse firewalls, and the ability to move the connection virtually anywhere.

For backup network applications, Digi Connect WAN integrates with remote locations via a secondary Ethernet WAN port on an existing router. This provides a truly diverse network connection for remote locations requiring maximum uptime.

For customers requiring end-to-end security WAN connections, Digi offers the Digi TransPort® VC7400, an enterprise class VPN concentrator with support for up to 3000 remote locations.
