Digi XBee® 3 Global LTE modules accelerate time-to-market for designers, OEMs and solution providers by quickly enabling wireless connectivity and easy-to-add functionality. Building on industry-leading technology, pre-certified Digi XBee 3 Global LTE modules offer the flexibility to switch between multiple frequencies and wireless protocols as needed.

Digi XBee 3 Global LTE modules are the latest addition to the expanding Digi XBee Ecosystem of wireless modules, adapters, tools and software — all engineered to accelerate product and application development, deployment and management.

Ideal for low-data (typically under 5 MB per month and where latency is not critical), low-power, low-cost applications, Digi XBee 3 Global LTE-M/NB-IoT modules feature a power-saving mode which extends sleep time and battery life.

With Digi Remote Manager®, Digi XBee 3 Global LTE modules can be easily configured and controlled from a simple, central platform. Built-in Digi TrustFence® security, identity and data privacy features use more than 175 controls to protect against new and evolving cyber threats.

Standard Digi XBee API frames and AT commands, MicroPython and Digi XCTU® software tools simplify setup, configuration, testing and adding or changing functionality.
