Digi Extends Internet Of AnyThing To Iridium Satellite Network

Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) today announced that the Iridium satellite network now supports the iDigi Device Cloud . Similar to cellular SMS, Digi devices with an Iridium data transceiver inside can now send and receive data via the iDigi Device Cloud over the Iridium network. As the world’s furthest-reaching network, this capability extends connectivity to the remote corners of the globe faster and easier than ever before.

“The iDigi Device Cloud provides massive scalability and instant connectivity to network-connected devices,” said Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Digi International. “With Iridium, we can now extend the benefits of cloud connectivity to devices connected everywhere in the world. This is particularly valuable for asset tracking and fleet management applications where connectivity is often critical in areas lacking landline or cellular connectivity.”

The iDigi Device Cloud provides the infrastructure required to access and control devices over the Internet. It provides a high degree of scalability, reliability and security. Software developers access the cloud via iDigi Manager Pro and/or iDigi Web services to simplify device integration.

“Iridium operates the world’s furthest-reaching network and enables connections in places and ways never before thought possible through an ecosystem of companies, such as Digi, who continually push the bounds of technology in terms of what is possible through our network,” said David Wigglesworth, vice president, data services, Iridium. “Digi offers customers a seamless worldwide solution for remote asset tracking and monitoring. The combination of Digi hardware, the iDigi Device Cloud and Iridium satellite network makes it easier for customers to extend connectivity to devices anywhere in the world.”

Customers can use Digi’s ConnectPort® X5 R gateway, equipped with the Iridium ® 9602 short-burst data (SBD) transceiver, to connect devices to iDigi. The gateway is a compact, ruggedized tracking and telematics device that incorporates cellular, satellite, global positioning system (GPS), Wi-Fi and vehicle area network (VAN) wireless technology in a single enclosure for flexible networking connectivity.
