Digi XBee Hardware

Digi XBee is more than a module. In fact it's a complete system of wireless modules, gateways, adapters and software. All engineered to accelerate wireless development for global deployments.

Multi-platform flexibility for simple projects or complex end-to-end solutions.

The Digi XBee® Ecosystem™ offers creators a full range of rapidly deployable drop-in networking solutions for seamless wireless communication between devices, adaptors and gateways.

In one compact design footprint, Digi XBee modules leverage multiple wireless protocols and RF frequencies suitable for all types of network architectures including cellular, ZigBee®, Thread, 802.15.4 and Wi-Fi open standards.

DigiMesh® is a widely deployed peer-to-peer mesh networking protocol that reduces the complexity of the ZigBee protocol for point-to-multipoint configuration. DigiMesh offers users added network stability through self-healing network operation and support for sleeping routers – extending the operational life of battery-dependent networks.

Mesh Networking

Mesh networking is used in applications where the range between two points may be beyond the range of the two radios located at those points, but intermediate radios are in place that could forward on any messages to and from the desired radios.
ZigBee
2.4GHZ
ZigBee is an open, global wireless standard designed for resilience and reliability communicating through noisy RF environments common in industrial applications.

DigiMesh
2.4GHZ900MHZ868MHZ
DigiMesh is similar to ZigBee mesh networking, but unlike ZigBee, DigiMesh only has one node-type that can route data and are interchangeable.

Point-to-multipoint

In networking, point-to-multipoint communication is accomplished by a one-to-one or one-to-many connection, providing multiple paths from a single location to multiple locations.
802.15.4
2.4GHZ
802.15.4 is a standard which specifies the physical layer and media access control and is ideal for applications requiring low latency and predictable communication timing.

Wi-Fi
2.4GHZ
802.11, or more commonly known as Wi-Fi, has a variety of sub-protocols represented by the suffix a/b/g/n/ac, each with varying degrees of bandwidth.

Cellular Networking

A cellular network is composed of radio cells, each supported by a carrier-controlled base station. The cells together provide radio coverage over large geographic areas without users needing to provide any infrastructure. With the introduction of protocols such as LTE Cat 1, M1, and NB-IOT, cellular data rates have come down to a point where it should be considered for certain low power applications.
LTE CAT1
LTE Cat 1 technology makes LTE viable now for M2M and IoT applications.
LTE-M
LTE-M is an IoT-centric flavor of LTE designed for sensor applications and devices requiring lower throughput.
LTE NB-IoT
LTE NB-IoT, also called Narrowband-IOT, also supports lower bandwidth applications and addresses challenges of poor signal strength and range limitations.
