Digi Connect® Sensor Receives 2016 IoT Excellence Award for Innovation in Supporting Better Business Decisions

Awards Regarded as Among the Most Prestigious and Respected Honors in the Communications and Technology Sector Worldwide

Minnetonka, Minn., (April 14, 2017) – Digi International®, (NASDAQ: DGII, www.digi.com), a leading global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity products and services, announced today that Digi Connect® Sensor has received a 2016 IoT Excellence Award presented by TMC and Crossfire Media. Digi Connect Sensor was identified as an innovative product that supports the availability of information being deduced, inferred and directly gathered from sensors and systems to promote better business decisions.

Digi Connect Sensor is a battery-powered cellular gateway for remote wireless connectivity in no power or low power environments previously considered too harsh, remote or not economically viable. Its remote sensing and monitoring capabilities make Digi Connect Sensor ideal for a broad marketplace of industrial IoT applications including Industry 4.0 and Smart Cities.

“We are honored to be chosen by TMC for one of its prestigious 2016 IoT Excellence Awards,” said Kevin C. Riley, chief operating officer, Digi International. “This recognition speaks to Digi’s commitment to providing the best solutions for a world where cellular connectivity is not just an option for industrial IoT, but logistically and financially essential.”

Digi Connect sensor is approved for use on an LTE Cat 1 network – a cellular network specifically designed for IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. The cellular connectivity at each sensor and the low data rates of an LTE Cat 1 network eliminates the need to configure local wireless networks and makes Digi Connect Sensor cost-effective for data backhaul.


“It is my pleasure to recognize Digi Connect Sensor with an IoT Excellence Award for its excellence in innovation,” said Carl Ford, CEO & Community Developer, Crossfire Media. “As a leader in this rapidly evolving industry, I look forward to seeing Digi’s future successes.”
