Digi Mobile VPN is a key addition to the Digi SAFE solution, available as a value-added service to Digi routers through Digi Remote Manager. Digi Mobile VPN enables users to create a secure connection between their data centers and the Digi router, including connected (wired or wireless) smart devices.
This service offers persistent, secure connectivity, utilizing Digi Remote Manager (Digi RM) as the central portal for orchestrating the mobile VPN setup and deployment. Digi Mobile VPN, powered by Radio IP, provides a highly secure mobile VPN software solution developed to address the exacting needs of mission critical communications including FirstNet® support for emergency responders.
Digi Mobile VPN enables communications to seamlessly traverse multiple, independent networks simultaneously within one mobile VPN connection, assuring secure uninterrupted connectivity for various mobile workforces — regardless of their location — while exceeding data protection regulations.
Digi devices provide a range of connectivity options including cellular failover with features such as Digi SureLink®, policy-based routing and interface bonding. These features are excellent at preventing any external network failures from causing downtime.
As a valuable add-on service to Digi RM, Digi Mobile VPN can be easily integrated from a central portal to enhance robust connectivity across the network. Using Digi RM to manage devices and network connectivity leverages our proven remote management platform through a single point of command. Digi RM’s monitoring and management features make it easy to view and control your devices from any location.
Developed with a technology partner, Radio IP, Digi Mobile VPN provides versatility, performance and reliability to bolster public safety efforts, improve response times, and enhance overall situational awareness for first responders and agencies.
Privacy should ensure that no third parties — including the VPN provider — can identify individual VPN users or see their online activity by monitoring the VPN connection. This is partially accomplished by employing strong security measures. Digi routers are designed with encryption built in, and integrated Digi Mobile VPN security offers an easy-to-use solution. These technologies are used to ensure that data is kept confidential, is not modified in transit, and only travels between trusted parties.
A VPN’s primary purpose is to ensure privacy and security online, but no one wants to compromise speed. High speed is always a top priority of first responder communications. Digi transportation cellular routers feature hardware acceleration, meet the U.S. government cybersecurity FIPS 140-2 standard, and employ speed and latency tests for maximum performance and reliability across private and secure Internet connections.
With Digi Accelerated Linux (DAL OS) embedded in Digi devices, an extensive set of software features and capabilities are built into firmware that is signed, vetted and distributed as part of our Digi TrustFence®-approved standards. Digi Mobile VPN reduces cost with a single license on the router for all connected devices to the router, without needing to run a client on each connected device.
When a client enables Mobile VPN in Digi RM and configures their Digi devices remotely or locally in DAL OS, the default route for any traffic is through the Mobile VPN connection. There is no extra client necessary and the standard DAL IPsec implementation is sufficient to get started. This can be managed by the customer, by Digi Professional Services or by a Digi partner.
Digi Mobile VPN can also be combined with Digi WAN Bonding for 5G/LTE WAN aggregation and immediate failover. This further optimizes speed and throughput with reduced latency, with WAN smoothing, hot failover and packet duplication.
Digi Mobile VPN offers a secure and reliable communication solution for public safety organizations including a range of use cases where a mobile VPN can enhance law enforcement and first responder fleet operations.
Digi Mobile VPN is available as a subscription added to Digi Remote Manager Premier. Additional value-added services and subscription options are also available.
