Introducing Digi SAFE™

The complete, purpose-built end-to-end solution for emergency responder vehicle connectivity.

Reliable, always-on connectivity

Every law enforcement and public safety organization needs fast, reliable, secure connectivity supporting the full range of in-vehicle computers, devices and scanners. For police vehicles especially, reliable connectivity is essential for the safety of officers in the field and the general public they’re sworn to protect.

Purpose-built for public safety

Digi SAFE™ connectivity solutions are purpose-built for public safety professionals. Easy-to-use and priced for widespread deployment by police and fire departments of all sizes, Digi SAFE includes state-of-the-art software to ensure the security and performance of the network, with rugged hardware built to withstand punishing vibration and weather extremes.

Cost effectiveness and value

Establishing secure, robust connectivity for emergency vehicles, along with dashcams, peripherals and other devices, can be a costly proposition. With departmental budget challenges in mind, this solution is priced for ready adoption, with available volume pricing options to deliver optimal value for the mission-critical investments of public safety departments.

Digi SAFE™ integrates sophisticated software and
high-performance hardware in one complete solution.

Digi Remote Manager

At the heart of Digi SAFE™ is Digi Remote Manager®, the command center of your intelligent public safety network. Digi Remote Manager enables IT teams to monitor, manage and update devices in the field remotely. It facilitates the rapid configuration and deployment of cellular routers, and ensures they always have critical security and firmware updates.

Digi TX Routers

Digi TX cellular routers are purpose-built for the challenging conditions encountered by public safety professionals in the field, with integrated device security, as well as Wi-Fi 6, serial, USB, dual SIMs and more for maximum integration flexibility. These rugged devices have IP64-rated hardened enclosures and are temperature rated for -34 °C to 70 °C to handle vibration and temperature extremes.

Value-Added Services

Digi SAFE enables agencies to augment their solution stack to meet their needs with a range of value-added services, including Digi Mobile VPN to ensure persistent, unbreakable, and secure mobile connectivity for vehicles on the move, and Digi WAN Bonding to aggregate available connections and deliver the fastest and most reliable link.

Situational Awareness for Public Safety

Situational awareness lets officers understand the full context of what's happening before they arrive at the scene. It lets them know the nature of the threat, if there is one, as well as the needs of the other officers, and any potential danger to the public. The volume and complexity of data flowing to and from public safety vehicles is growing constantly. So the need for situational awareness — and the always-on connectivity that enables it — has never been greater.

Meeting the mission-critical requirements of emergency vehicles requires a high-performance system that can manage the critical data flow for the complete range of devices. Since at any given time this can include radios, dashboard cameras, body cams, license plate readers, radar detectors and more, the solution must support real-time data flow between dispatchers, command staff and emergency responders arriving on the scene of a public safety incident. Digi SAFE is designed to support these critical needs.

5G/4G Dual-Connectivity

The advantages of 5G wireless connectivity are well known. 5G offers higher speed, lower latency and stronger security than its predecessors. Digi SAFE solutions are available in both 4G LTE and 5G models with 4G/5G dual connectivity and dual-SIMs. 5G cellular routers seamlessly move between 5G and 4G connectivity without interruption and with no loss of data.

Persistent Connections on the Go

Digi mobile access routers have a robust industrial design to handle the variable conditions that confront first responders, from heat and cold to moisture and vibration. And they have integrated features for persistent connections, including dual SIMs, carrier failover, and Digi SureLink® for the most reliable connectivity at all times. When tough equipment, high availability and critical data throughput matter, trust Digi to meet your needs

Locational Awareness

Situational awareness includes locational awareness — knowing exactly where a public safety vehicle is at all times. Digi TX routers include latest-generation GNSS dead reckoning technology, which provides more accurate location information than is possible with standard GPS. This capability, known as “untethered dead reckoning” (UDR), is especially useful when vehicles are traveling through tunnels or urban canyons, or beneath an overpass, any of which can block the GPS signal.

Connectivity in Large-Scale Emergencies

Civilian cell phone usage during a largescale public emergency can jam cellular networks. In response, wireless carriers developed networks to deliver priority, pre-emptive communications for first responders during such emergencies. These networks ensure that first responders can reliably communicate with dispatchers, hospitals and each other. Digi solutions are compatible with all public safety cellular plans.

Digi SAFE: Three Rings of Security

Digi’s reputation for security is unmatched in the industry. Digi SAFE protects both live voice communication and confidential data with three interlocking rings of security.

Digi TrustFence

Digi TrustFence®

Digi SAFE incorporates Digi TrustFence®, the proven security framework designed for mission-critical applications. Digi TrustFence integrates device security, device identity, and data privacy capabilities that grow and adapt with new and evolving cyberthreats.

FIPS 140-2 Certification

FIPS 140-2 Validation

Digi cellular routers based on the Digi Accelerated Linux operating system (DAL OS) meet strict Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 (FIPS 140-2) requirements for cryptographic modules. This validation by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) ensures communications and data handled by these devices are fully encrypted to prevent data theft and cyberthreats. Digi Remote Manager enables FIPS 140-2 with a simple software update.

CJIS-compliant Mobile VPN

CJIS-compliant Mobile VPN

Digi Mobile VPN is a value-added service developed in collaboration with Radio IP, a leader in mobile solutions with decades of experience in secure communications. This service empowers agencies to establish a persistent, robust, and secure connection between their data centers via the Digi router in a mobile environment, encompassing all connected edge devices, whether wired or wireless, and it complies with the standards set by the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) division.
