Digi International Introduces Versatile Digi IX20 Router for Industrial, Remote Location Monitoring and for Unattended Retail and Digital Signage Applications

Industrial router provides rugged, right-sized connectivity to support industrial infrastructure, critical assets, digital signage, retail kiosks, and service terminals

Digi International(R), (NASDAQ: DGII,www.digi.comĀ [1]), a leading global provider of Internet of Things (IoT)
connectivity products and services, today launched the Digi IX20, theonly industrial router providing adaptable, right-sized connectivity inindustrial infrastructure, location monitoring, and unattended retailapplications. The Digi IX20 also offers advanced security and redundancyfeatures for reliable performance in harsh environments.
The Digi IX20 integrates with Digi Remote Manager [2](R), an IoT devicemonitoring application that that provides secure remote monitoring andcontrol, enables automated firmware and software updates, and brings
simple, comprehensive management of intelligent routers. Thisapplication unlocks the full potential of the IX20 both by simplifyingthe road to data-driven insights and the performance of the routeritself, including uptime and failover (Digi SureLink(R)) and security(Digi TrustFence(R)) features.
Digi IX20 uses Digi CORE [3](R) plug-in modems that provideuser-selectable connectivity while maintaining the ability to change or upgrade connectivity protocols without replacing the router. Meanwhile,its serial interface easily fits into most deployments without requiringa redesign.
Digi IX20 is a versatile router with features to supports a wide rangeof applications and use cases from critical industrial monitoring to
self-service retail kiosks. Key features include:
Manageability – With Digi Remote Manager, a comprehensivecompliance and security management application that provides centralizeddevice management. It supports easy setup, mass configuration, control,and maintenance from a single pane of glass. It provides real-time viewof network and device health and compliance, sending notifications whenan alert is triggered, diagnosing and potentially repairing remotedevices without the need to deploy a technician. Digi Remote Managerbrings an increased ease of use and high level of product and networkunderstanding unlocking the full potential of the Digi IX20.
Reliability – In addition to dual SIMs for failover, DigiSureLink [4] maintains cellular connections under adverse conditions,provides reliable uptime for mission-critical applications. Smart loadbalancing between cellular and Ethernet WANs, dual APNs, and configurable APN search simplify deployment and reduce setup time.

Flexibility – The Digi IX20 offers optional Wi-Fi with serialRS-232 (DB9), Ethernet, and cellular LTE CAT-4 connectivity. Customerscan add their own edge compute algorithms with Python support and nativeLinux applications.

Security – The integrated Digi TrustFence [5] securityframework combines secure boot, protected hardware ports, and secure
connections with the latest encryption protocols.
Ruggedness – Whether in the factory, oilfield, or outdoordigital signage, the Digi IX20 operates in a wide range of temperaturesand is built to withstand the harshest environments. Digi’s new routeris rated IP30 and has been tested for operation in -40F to +158F (-40C
to +70C).
“Industrial IoT applications and unattended retail operations continueto be a priority for Digi,” said Brian Kirkendall, Vice President,
Product Management at Digi International. “We remain focused onsolutions that bring flexibility, reliability, and security. The IX20
extends that commitment with an industrial-grade router that offersmultiple connectivity paths, a secure OS, and edge intelligence.”
The Digi IX20 is certified and available in the U.S., Canada, Europe(and countries that honor CE), Australia, New Zealand, and Columbia.Certifications are in progress for, Mexico, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore,and other countries.
