Digi International Receives 2015 M2M Evolution Battle of the Platforms Award

Digi Remote Manager Wins Best Horizontal Platform
Minnetonka, MN (Feb. 3, 2015) - Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) announced today that it has received the 2015 M2M Evolution Battle of the Platforms Award for “Best Horizontal Platform” from TMC and Crossfire Media. On January 27, 2015, Digi showcased the Digi Remote Manager® suite at M2M Evolution Conference & Expo against other solutions to a panel of judges and a live audience.

Remote Manager is a secure, enterprise-class, device management solution for Digi machine-to-machine (M2M) devices. It allows users to centrally manage, monitor and configure remote devices so that M2M networks are easy to scale quickly. With Remote Manager, IT departments can automatically monitor individual Digi devices for security compliance; easily check device status and location through the web; and get highly configurable reporting and alerts on performance statistics such as connection history, signal quality, latency, data usage and packet loss.
 
“Most M2M network deployments start with a small pilot that demonstrates connectivity and workflow, but as the number of devices increase, the complexity becomes harder to manage often making it impossible to scale,” said Digi CMO Jeff Liebl. “Digi Remote Manager takes the burden of network management from IT departments, making it easy to keep Digi devices secure and functioning properly with the latest firmware.”
 
At M2M Evolution Conference & Expo, Digi demonstrated the remote management solution which a retail customer used to achieve significant return on investment. The company leveraged remote firmware updates to achieve a positive return on investment in the first year of deployment, while also allowing them to successfully scale their Digi device deployments to its full size.
 
“On behalf of Crossfire Media, TMC and M2M Evolution, I am excited to announce Digi International as a 2015 Battle of the Platforms Winner,” said Carl Ford, CEO, Crossfire Media, executive director of content, M2M Evolution. “Platforms like Digi Remote Manager are driving machine-to-machine advancements that are transforming what is possible in the Internet of Things. Digi truly deserves this award and I look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future.”
 
The Battle of the Platforms winners will be featured in an upcoming issue of M2M Evolution magazine as well as in the M2M eNewsletter and website.
