Prestigious Technology Publications Highlight Company’s Wireless Communications Solutions for Potential to Drive M2M and Internet of Things Industrial Applications

MINNETONKA, Minn. – June 1, 2015  – Digi International®, (NASDAQ: DGII, www.digi.com), the M2M solutions expert, today announced that two of its wireless communications solutions, the Digi XLR PRO™ and the XBee® ZigBee Cloud Kit, have been singled out by leading technology publications for their potential to transform M2M wireless data communications, which lies at the heart of the Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives. These solutions are specifically designed to provide reliable, efficient long-range wireless connectivity and to leverage the cloud to bring wireless Internet connectivity to the product design and build process.
IoT Evolution Product of the Year: Digi XLR PRO was recently recognized by TMC and Crossfire Media as a recipient of the publication’s 2015 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award, which honors the systems and solutions that are delivering on the promise of gathering information regardless of proximity. Highlighted by Digi’s patented Punch2™ Technology, Digi XLR PRO is a high-performance, industrial-grade, long-range 900 MHz radio that offers reliable wireless communications for serial and Ethernet devices over long distances. Designed for use in noisy RF surroundings, Digi XLR PRO achieves an industry-leading range of 1 to 100+ miles and interference immunity that will punch through difficult RF environments. Users can easily manage the devices using Digi Device CloudSM, which enables over-the-air firmware updates, device status monitoring and centralized remote management.  
Earlier this year, TMC and Crossfire Media also recognized the XBee ZigBee Cloud Kit in its 2014 M2M Evolution IoT Excellence Award, which honored innovative products that support the availability of information being deduced, inferred and directly gathered from sensors, systems and anything else that is supporting better business and personal decisions.
IoT Innovations Award:  Connected World, the authority on next-generation M2M communications, selected Digi’s XBee ZigBee Cloud Kit for the publication’s inaugural IoT Innovations Awards, which recognize the most creative and technologically advanced products, services and platforms that display novelty and ingenuity across a number of different industries. The XBee ZigBee Cloud Kit allows design engineers to easily bring wireless Internet connectivity to their networks of devices through a connected gateway. It jumpstarts product development and accelerates the process of building a hardware prototype and integrating it into an Internet application. The award builds upon Digi’s previous recognition in the Connected World 2015 CW 100, an annual ranking of the technology leaders based on their contributions to the connected devices marketplace.
“Digi focuses on solutions that deliver practical and pragmatic innovation, and it’s very rewarding to be recognized for that,” said Joel Young, chief technology officer at Digi. “For 30 years, with each new release of wireless technologies, we’ve been at the forefront of leveraging those generational advances for business value.  Our commitment to helping our customers has been as unwavering as is our quest for innovation.”
