Modules & Gateways

The Digi XBee ecosystem delivers a choice of XBee radio modules for reliable RF connectivity via cellular gateways, and XBee cellular modems for direct connectivity, giving you complete design flexibility. Select the type of XBee module that best suits your application, as well as the best protocol and frequency.

Software, Tools & Security

The Digi XBee ecosystem provides a comprehensive set of software and tools to support prototyping, development and deployment, as well as integrated security and ongoing management of your deployed devices. From Digi XCTU — a sophisticated tool for configuration and testing — to prototyping tools, software libraries, the Digi TrustFence security framework and the Digi XBee mobile app, you have everything you need to build and deploy any wireless application:

Network Management & Cloud Integration

Digi XBee 3 modules integrate with Digi Remote Manager®, the command center for deployed networks of Digi devices. For a network of any size — or one that will need to scale — it is imperative to be able to reach every device so you can keep those devices online and up-to-date. Digi RM enables rapid firmware updates, security patches and troubleshooting.

Additionally, the Digi XBee ecosystem is cloud-ready. Digi Remote Manager lets you easily integrate with any cloud service, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.

The key benefits include:

  • Accessibility to geographically dispersed or hard-to-reach devices for any needed maintenance or updates.
  • Ability to automate repeat tasks for efficiency.
  • Insights into the health of your devices, as well as the ability to remotely restart them.
  • Security automation: The Digi RM Configuration Manager monitors configurations and resets them if they fall out of compliance.
  • Integration: Cloud-agnostic Digi Remote Manager enables seamless integration of your IoT application with your business systems and processes.
