The newest additions to the Digi XBee Global Cellular family are dependable, compact solutions with BLE and end-device carrier certifications that can be used worldwide and are equipped with Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) positioning. They deliver simplified and future-proof solutions for developers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) looking to add reliable cellular IoT connectivity to their devices or IoT gateways. With pre-integrated certifications, the XBee 3 Global family supports LTE Cat 1, LTE-M and NB-IoT networks, with 2G/3G fallback — for applications that require reliable cellular connectivity, anywhere in the world. These solutions support low-power applications such as meters, smart sensors and other fixed assets that send small portions of data.

Digi XBee Global Cellular family smart modems are designed to be provisioned, managed and monitored by Digi Remote Manager® (Digi RM). Additionally, they support MicroPython programming, Bluetooth, GNSS positioning for geolocation and Digi TrustFence® security.

“Our Digi XBee 3 Global Cellular family expands the XBee ecosystem of RF modules, gateways, adapters and software — giving OEMs access to the smallest, pre-certified modems for cellular networks that will save thousands in development time and money,” said Steve Ericson, Vice President and General Manager of Digi’s OEM Solutions division. “Pre-certification, along with the integration of advanced software and security, and a full ecosystem of tools supports rapid time-to-market.”

Digi XBee 3 Global Cellular Cat 1

Designed for applications that require higher throughput, the XBee 3 Cat 1 smart modem gives customers a single SKU for deployment of cellular products anywhere in the world. It includes 2G/3G fallback for use in regions and countries where Cat 1 isn’t available.

Digi XBee 3 Global Cellular LTE-M/NB-IoT

Offering low-power cellular connectivity, Digi XBee 3 LTE-M/NB-IoT modules are designed for applications that require data collection from edge devices — supporting higher data rates, lower latency and cell tower handoff, making it ideal for mobile applications and asset tracking.

Delivering the lowest power consumption and data transfer rates available, NB-IoT is ideal for battery-powered and passive devices, which transmit small amounts of data at intermittent times.

All smart modems within the XBee Cellular family solution include MicroPython programming resources to enable direct custom scripting, 2G/3G fallback to ensure connectivity, GNSS for accurate location services, OTA firmware updates and access to Digi Remote Manager for over-the-air software updates and monitoring. With built-in Digi TrustFence® security, identity and data privacy features, customers can tap into more than 175 controls to protect against new and evolving cyber threats. The Digi XBee Mobile App and Digi XBee Studio® tool suite simplify setup, configuration and testing. Digi XBee Data Plans are also available for a wide variety of cellular connectivity requirements.

Digi XBee 3 Global Cellular Family solutions are available now. For more information, visit:

The European Circular Economy Project TREASoURcE to Install Stationary Battery Systems for Energy Storage Purposes at Two Demo Sites in Norway and Finland22.3.2023 11:44:00 EET | Press release

As part of the four-year circular economy project TREASoURcE, a stationary Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) built with used electric vehicle batteries will be commissioned at two demo sites in Norway and Finland over the summer 2023. The demonstrations aim to increase knowledge of the batteries’ second life and their functionality and how stationary batteries can be used to balance electricity demand. The intended result is to accelerate the market uptake of this technology. The selected demo sites are Rudskogen Motorsports Centre in Viken, Norway, and the municipally owned Lempäälä House in Lempäälä, Finland. The pilot is led by the Norwegian research organisation SINTEF and the battery systems will be supplied by the Norwegian company ECO STOR AS. The system stores excess energy from solar panels which in turn is used to cut power peaks for the facilities. The BESS can thus be used to shift energy consumption to reduce the energy cost and provide stabilization for the entire powe
