Telit Wireless Solutions and Digi International have announced that Telit’s xE910 module family is employed in the latest addition to Digi’s TransPort family of cellular routers. The HE910 provides support for HSPA+ networks, the DE910 supports EV-DO networks and the LE910 supports LTE networks.
The Digi Transport WR11 gives network management professionals a secure, reliable, and low cost cellular connection for retail, point-of-sale and gaming applications. By focusing on the critical features for payment card and other secure transactions, the router makes it possible for network operators to expand their business by taking advantage of the increasing ubiquity and security of global cellular networks.
There is a growing trend to use wireless technology to seize new opportunities across all parts of the payment value chain. Merchants want to offer new points of presence. Retailers want reliable back-up systems. Banks want to reach under-banked populations in emerging markets. Public Gaming companies want secure, reliable and ubiquitous lottery and other gaming terminals. And, ATM operators want to offer value-added service beyond cash disbursement (e.g. pay bills).
“We chose the xE910 because it has a small compact footprint and it supports a wide variety of network technologies on multiple carriers globally, said Curt Ahart, VP, cellular products, Digi International. “The xE910 helps us reduce our engineering expense and shorten our time to market. Telit also provides us excellent support—helping us innovate quickly and efficiently.”
“The Telit xE910 family provides robust support for LTE, HSPA and EVDO networks,” said Mike Ueland, president of Telit Americas. “By employing a continuous connection with the cellular network Digi has removed the reliance on wired or customer-hosted WLAN connections.”
