Employee health and safety come first. And yet, your business still needs to carry on during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. For many organizations, that means employees working remotely for the foreseeable future. Yet home Wi-Fi can present risks to proprietary data and confidential internal communications.

Fortunately, it is possible to provide commercial-level security at an affordable cost—with connectivity solutions from Digi. Digi’s cellular extenders deliver secure, reliable, high-performance connectivity in a compact, all-in-one solution at low cost, and integrate seamlessly with your existing infrastructure.

Digi Connect® IT console servers provide your IT team with remote, out-of-band access so they can remotely troubleshoot and remediate issues, wherever they may occur across your workforce.

Keep track of all your vital connections with one central management platform, Digi Remote Manager®. With Digi Remote Manager, your IT team has complete control and is able to easily and securely monitor and configure devices remotely. And all of these solutions enable you to offer flexible work arrangements long into the future.

No one knows when the crisis will pass. But until it does, you can help your organization keep as close as possible to “business as usual” with scalable, remote connectivity solutions from Digi.

Remote Work Scenarios

The right solution for your enterprise networking needs depends on a few factors. Here we will look at a basic scenario and a more elaborate scenario, as well as a remote management scenario for IT personnel.

I have a single computer that I need to connect to the home office

Digi 6310-DX

If you use a laptop or desktop computer in your home office and want a secure, wired connection, a Digi cellular extender like the Digi 6310-DX is a great solution.

For primary wired WAN, connect your computer to the LAN port on the Digi 6310-DX and the WAN port to your home Internet router. Your corporate IT staff can configure the Digi 6310-DX remotely via Digi Remote Manager to create a VPN tunnel between your home office and the corporate data center, encrypting all IP traffic in the tunnel. If your home Internet experiences a service outage, the Digi 6310-DX cellular module will take over and keep communications running and keep your data secure.

I have multiple devices that I need to connect to my corporate network

Digi 6310-DX

If you have multiple devices to connect to your corporate network, a device like the Digi EX15 and Digi 6310-DX are both great fits.

Your IT staff can create configurations for these devices in Digi Remote Manager that will only allow your corporate-issued devices (laptop, cell phone, tablet, etc.) to attach to the extender’s Wi-Fi and connect securely via VPN tunnel to your corporate network. IT staff can continuously monitor all home connections using Digi Remote Manager and ensure remote hardware maintains configurations and uptime.

I am a remote IT professional supporting a distributed workforce

You can access remote corporate devices anywhere using Digi console servers such as Digi Connect IT Mini, Connect IT 4, 16 and 48. These devices support your IP traffic routing and simplify out-of-band-management. They enable you to remotely access, troubleshoot and fix issues with your equipment to maintain staff productivity.

Choose the number of ports based on the number of IT assets to connect. For cellular connectivity, you can optionally choose to add the Digi CORE LTE modem, at a range of connection speeds, including LTE CAT 6 (300M down/50M up) for high bandwidth needs or LTE CAT 4 (150M down/50M up) and LTE CAT-M (300K/300k) for a more cost-effective solution.
