The Digi Connect WAN family of commercial-grade Wireless WAN cellular routers provides secure high-speed wireless connectivity to remote sites and devices. Digi Connect WAN cellular products can be used for reliable primary wireless network connectivity to equipment at remote locations, as well as for a backup to existing landline communications. They are also ideal for use where wired networks (e.g., leased line / frame relay, ISDN, DSL) are not feasible, or where alternative network connections are required.
Digi Connect WAN products are able to provide a primary Wireless WAN connection to remotes sites containing Ethernet and / or serial devices. Applications include new construction locations, power utility substations, retail / POS sites, temporary facilities without primary wired connections, and many more.
For backup network applications, Digi Connect WAN cellular products integrate with remote locations via a secondary Ethernet WAN port on an existing router. This provides a truly diverse network connection for remote locations requiring maximum uptime, such as retail / POS and financial applications.
Digi SureLink is a unique feature that provides a "persistent connection" over wireless networks by utilizing a three-way client and server initiated scheme. All Digi Connect WAN cellular products seamlessly integrate with Digi Connectware Manager, which provides easy setup, configuration and maintenance of large installations. Users can upgrade firmware or change settings on thousands of devices with only a few clicks. It also makes troubleshooting simple by reporting problems like identifying misbehaving devices or network issues.
