Digi International Qualifies Devices for AWS Private 5G

Digi gateways and routers leverage AWS Private 5G to connect successful IoT solutions

HOPKINS, Minn., Feb. 22, 2023 – Digi International, (NASDAQ: DGII, www.digi.com), a leading global provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and services, announced the qualification of a wide range of its cellular gateways and routers for AWS Private 5G, a managed service offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that makes it easier to procure, deploy, and scale private mobile networks.

Industrial, transportation, and enterprise organizations are increasingly pursuing private LTE and 5G networks to meet business connectivity needs. Customers want to build their own private networks to take advantage of the reliability, better coverage, lower latency, and higher bandwidth they provide and to be able to scale their networks as they add more devices. AWS Private 5G puts the enterprise in control, allowing customers to specify where they want to build a mobile network and the network capacity needed for their devices — and AWS delivers and maintains the small cell radio units, servers, core and radio access network (RAN) software, and subscriber identity modules (SIM cards) required to set up a private 5G network and connect devices. AWS Private 5G automates the setup and deployment of the network, so that customers can deploy their own private mobile network within days instead of months, scale up and down the number of connected devices rapidly, and benefit from a familiar on-demand cloud pricing model.

Organizations deploying private mobile networks require wired and wireless devices, machines and vehicles to connect seamlessly. Digi, the first company to list qualified devices for AWS Private 5G in the AWS Partner Device Catalog, gives customers access to reliable, secure cellular connectivity solutions. Example use cases include:

  • Smart Factories — Connect autonomous robots, vehicles, legacy machines, or edge gateways within manufacturing facilities to achieve industrial network service level metrics.
  • Warehouses — Connect employee tablets, handheld devices, barcode scanners for digital data entry at outdoor locations, such as warehouses and ports, for reliable coverage and mobility.
  • Security — Connect video cameras, fingerprint scanners, or automated number plate scanners securely using private mobile networks with predictable bandwidth.

Bolstered by Digi Remote Manager® — the command center of an intelligent network that will run on AWS — Digi’s Internet of Things (IoT) technologies can improve the way people, machines, and processes interact. Network connectivity is the fundamental key to the true potential of these technologies that place Digi at the forefront of some of the most advanced networking solutions combining software, hardware, and services for enterprises.

“We are proud to be the first company to qualify and list devices for AWS Private 5G in the AWS Partner Device Catalog,” said Harald Remmert, Chief Technology Officer of Cellular Solutions for Digi. “Our gateways and routers serve as the connectivity bridge to ensure AWS customers can easily set up, deploy, operate, and scale their IoT projects. Whether they’re connecting industrial robots, autonomous guided vehicles, legacy machines, video cameras, barcode scanners, smart meters or other devices, Digi is the trusted provider of the most advanced connectivity solutions for digital transformation in industrial, transportation and enterprise organizations.”

Digi provides purpose-built devices for specific use cases including Enterprise (EX) extenders and routers for retail, healthcare and commercial/home office environments; Industrial (IX) routers and gateways for those demanding indoor and outdoor environments and mobile-ready devices (TX) used in transit like buses and trains as well as in emergency vehicles.
