IGT selected the Digi TransPort WR11 to rapidly connect network technology for gaming machines, lotteries, and interactive and social gaming solutions.

The world’s largest slot machine manufacturer, International Game Technology (IGT) turned to the Digi TransPort WR11 when searching for an innovative solution for their lottery systems. The Digi TransPort WR11 is a wireless router that provides IGT the 4G LTE connection to rapidly communication and solve problems with mission-critical M2M applications.


IGT is the world-leader in online lottery systems.

We're about six billion dollars in revenue, 13,000 employees in a hundred different countries. We provide online gaming services and lottery functions for our customers.

We have been using wireless communications for about 25 years now. We pioneered many of the technology's techniques that are used in the lottery industry for communications. Our customers are typically state and local governments and there's a formal bid process that we have to go through and our proposals are evaluated in various areas, communications being one of them.

And we, nine out of ten times, score the highest in all of our scores for the evaluation in communications and our customers recognize that. They recognize us for innovation, and they also recognize us for our reputation to deliver.

If you can't buy a ticket because the communication suddenly breaks down, that's a problem.

So we use high-availability network technologies to connect our customers. We use the Digi product because that fits our need in many cases and we've used that around the world.

One of the greatest benefits that we see is our ability to work directly with the Digi engineers together with our engineers to solve our problems and when we have challenges, it's very useful to be able to have that interaction and we've done that very well over the past several years, working together to solve problems.
