Digi International, a leading global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity products and services, on November 20, 2017, announced it has been named an Advanced tier Technology Partner in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) and has achieved AWS IoT Competency status. Digi will offer proven products integrated with AWS IoT edge services such as AWS IoT and AWS Greengrass. This integration enables customers to easily and securely connect edge devices with cloud applications through AWS IoT.
Digi ConnectCore 6 Now AWS Greengrass and AWS IoT Verified
Digi delivers AWS Greengrass and AWS IoT implementations as part of its Linux software platform support. With AWS Greengrass technology, connected devices can run AWS Lambda functions locally, keep device data in sync, and communicate with other devices securely – even when not connected to the Internet. This integration enables local edge intelligence with quick responses to local events, allows for operation despite intermittent network connections, and cost-optimized IoT cloud communication.
Compatible products include:
- Digi ConnectCore 6UL: The industry’s smallest Linux based SOM built on NXP i.MX6UL processors with pre-certified dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, including SBCs with cellular connectivity options, and TrustFence security.
- Digi ConnectCore 6: Industrial Linux SOM/SBC platforms with scalable NXP i.MX6 multicore performance, pre-certified Bluetooth 4.0, dual-band Wi-Fi integration, cellular connectivity options, Gigabit Ethernet, and multi-display/camera capabilities.
AWS IoT enabled next-generation Digi XBee® Cellular Smart Modems
Integrated AWS IoT support for the next-generation Digi XBee Cellular LTE Cat 1 modem will be available in Q1 2018, followed by support for the Digi XBee Cellular LTE-M and Digi XBee Cellular NB-IoT smart modems.
“Smart IoT endpoints provide edge computing capabilities allowing for the creation and delivery of secure, local device-level intelligence,” said Senior Director Product Management, Embedded Systems at Digi International, Mike Rohrmoser. “The combination of Digi’s connected product expertise and the AWS secure edge and cloud services instantly enable customers to confidently build and deploy new solutions across various segments including but not limited to: industrial, transportation, medical and smart energy.”
Digi will be exhibiting at the Quad at the ARIA in booth 209 at AWS re:Invent 2017 in Las Vegas from November 27 to December 1, providing attendees with a hands-on experience in learning about Digi’s AWS IoT technology-enabled connected embedded products.
