Digi XBee® 3 Global LTE-M/NB-IoT Smart Modems

Digi XBee® 3 Global Lower Power LTE-M/NB-IoT Smart Modems provide quick time-to-market, wireless connectivity, and easy-to-add functionality. The pre-certified Digi XBee 3 Global LTE modules offer the flexibility to switch between multiple frequencies and wireless protocols. The Digi XBee 3 Global LTE modules are essential in the Digi XBee Ecosystem of wireless modules, adapters, tools, and software engineered to accelerate product and application development, deployment, and management.

Excellent for low-data (typically under 5MB per month and where latency is not critical), low-power, low-cost applications, the modules feature a power-saving mode that extends sleep time and battery life.

Combining Digi Remote Manager®, the modules can be easily configured and controlled from a simple, central platform.

Built-in Digi TrustFence® security, identity, and data privacy features use over 175 controls to protect against new and evolving cyber threats.
Standard Digi XBee API frames and AT commands, MicroPython, and Digi XCTU® software tools simplify setup, configuration, testing, and adding or changing functionality.
