Digi International Brings CAT11 to Enterprise Cellular Extenders with Digi EX15

By Ken Briodagh

According to a recent release, Digi International, a global provider of Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity products and services, made available its Digi EX15 cellular extender that is designed to be used for primary or backup LTE connectivity at LTE-Advanced Pro (CAT11) speeds and for quick installations and remote management through either Digi aView or Digi Remote Manager. 

The Digi EX15 reportedly is an affordable LTE cellular solution that can protect businesses from network disruptions, so they can mitigate the risk of lost revenue and damaged reputation if their primary broadband connection fails. As a reliable, scalable business continuity failover solution, and, with CAT11 support, the company says it can support even high-bandwidth applications including video streaming and internet-connected security cameras, in addition to primary connectivity for kiosks, ATMs and digital signage.

Digi EX15 cellular extenders reportedly are suited for large deployments and ship with everything needed for rapid installation. The Site Survey Battery identifies optimal mounting locations for strongest cellular signal and the Remote Mounting Kit allows installation of the device to dry wall, drop ceilings, unfinished open ceilings or glass so users do not have to compromise effectiveness.

“Network uptime is critical to business success and reputation,” said Scott Nelson, VP, product, Digi International. “With the Digi EX15, we’re helping businesses protect themselves from broadband network outages at LTE-Advanced Pro speeds that can match the speed of the primary broadband connectivity.”

The Digi EX15 is available in the U.S., Canada and Europe with LTE and LTE-Advanced support and is upgradeable to LTE-Advanced Pro capabilities upon the modem’s release next month.
