The XBee Cellular 3G Global on-board modem from Digi offers easy-to-install 3G connectivity on OEM equipment with worldwide deployments (HSPA / GSM technology with backup 2G connectivity).
This modem is CE certified, thus eliminating the complexity, risks and significant costs incurred in the certification process.
The XBee cellular modem is programmable and supports custom embedded applications in MicroPython, allowing users to manage their devices more efficiently (this to eliminate the need for an external microcontroller in some cases).
It takes into account the full suite of Digi XBee APIs and AT commands, so that a customer can simply integrate this 3G cellular modem into their existing design (without needing to redesign their ongoing development).
