5G and 4G LTE Cellular Routers: Connecting Machines, Applications and the IoT

A cellular router uses a 4G LTE or 5G cellular connection to provide connectivity, without requiring wired cabling. With the growth of LTE and 5G networks, the demand for cellular-based routers is rapidly growing. Cellular routers, 4G LTE routers, 5G routers and extenders connect and route communications between devices, machines, applications and cloud services for business enterprises, industrial applications and transportation. They achieve this faster, cheaper and more reliably than traditional wired routers, and offer backup connectivity – that utopia of business continuity – for wired connections.

Digi 4G LTE and 5G cellular solutions provide the communications backbone in three broad categories – enterpriseindustrial, and transportation/mobile – to reliably and securely connect people, machines and data, anywhere, anytime. Our cellular routers are fully integrated solutions, dedicated to supporting the most mission critical needs, with rapid deployment, secure edge computing capabilities, and highly resilient connections, as well as monitoring, troubleshooting and out-of-band management.

IIOT Edge Computing: Control Hardware at the Edge With GPIO

Tools, strategies and applications for integration of edge data into business systems are hot topics.

How do you offload stress and computing resources from your network, enable more efficient data integration, and improve the efficiency of transactions and data transfer?

How can you leverage computing resources where they will most effectively deliver results?

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) requires streamlined solutions to manage remote computing assets and maximize the benefit of the data they produce.

Definition, Use Cases and Application Examples

Connectivity To Cloud Application In Industrial IOT

The availability of GPIO and a Python programming environment on-board the Digi WR31 allows the device to function much like a Remote Terminal Unit (RTU), while at the same time delivering the value of a truly industrial-grade cellular router with automatic dual-cellular failover capabilities.

Enhancing those capabilities through data externalization through use of the Digi Remote Manager API to platforms like AWS and Azure makes it possible for a small group or even a single person to develop powerful solutions more quickly and efficiently than an entire development team.

Along with its centralized device management capabilities, Digi Remote Manager (DRM) delivers a comprehensive Application Programming Interface (API), making it easy .

The oil and gas industry is currently undergoing a paradigm shift, with some of the largest players actively embracing hosted infrastructure such as Amazon’s AWS platform and Microsoft Azure after years of reliance on on-premise solutions. This is occurring because the security and data residency models on those platforms now meet the needs of customers. At the same time, Digi Remote Manager® is becoming increasingly popular with these customers for similar reasons.

Along with its centralized device management capabilities, Digi Remote Manager (DRM) delivers a comprehensive Application Programming Interface (API), making it easy to integrate bi-directional device data into other platforms for a range of purposes.

These can include:

  • – Triggering process workflow
  • – Sending commands to devices in the field
  • – Developing custom reports

Industrial IoT Use Cases for Edge Computing

Many Digi customers have highly demanding applications operating in extreme conditions such as mining and oil and gas, which are subject to a range of environmental conditions. Here are two such examples:

1) Oil and Gas Use Case

In this example, the customer is an oil and gas company that leverages the Digi WR31 on-board digital I/O. The company’s application involves a private radio communications network.

The private radio network occasionally freezes and becomes unresponsive under certain circumstances, and the cost of sending a resource onsite to re-power the system is considerable. This customer has resolved the issue by placing Digi WR31 routers at each radio site and connecting an inline relay to the Digital output to interrupt/re-enable power to the private radio units. When a radio become unresponsive, the customer can now send a command to the Digital I/O on the Digi WR31, cutting all power from the private radio, then re-enabling it – resulting in a hard system reset. This solution avoids repeated truck rolls to numerous distant sites each year, resulting in considerable cost savings.

2) Power Company Use Case

Involving a major power utility that installs Digi WR31 routers throughout the smart grid, using the on-board serial connection to monitor reclosers (power grid circuit breakers) and maintain a high degree of power reliability for more than four million customers. The Digi WR31 is installed outdoors in a utility box that also contains a battery backup, so the customer leverages both Digital interfaces on the WR31 as inputs to monitor two conditions:
-Utility box door opens or closes
-Router input power switches from line electricity to battery

Each time one of the above conditions is triggered or reset, the occurrence is denoted in a log file with a timestamp for further review and analysis by a company administrator. Condition detection and logging are achieved through the use of a simple Python program running directly on the router. The combination of an on-board programming environment and GPIO enable the customer to eliminate additional hardware while delivering a complete solution at the edge.

Secure and Scalable Deployments with IoT Device Management

As the Internet of Things grows, and device networks and edge computing architectures become more complex, it is important to be able to manage all those devices across the network. However, the challenges of managing connected devices are many and varied.

Introducing New AnywhereUSB Plus – Rapidly deploy, configure, secure and manage devices at any distance

 

The proliferation of peripherals and smart devices in today’s business environment presents challenges for the IT teams that must manage them. These challenges typically fall into these categories:

The organization does not have enough USB ports on their host computers to support all of their devices for charging, configuration or updates.
The devices are located or used at wide-reaching locations across the enterprise – beyond the typical reach of a USB cable.
Managing updates is an inefficient process due to the number and variety of devices in use.
Placing computers in the locations where USB devices are used is either costly or difficult, based on factors such as the number of devices or the environmental conditions present.

A Use Case Example: Point-of-Sale Device Connectivity

The Challenge: Connectivity and Management of Devices Across the Enterprise

Enterprises that need device connectivity include everything from factories and supply chain services to hotels, restaurants, retail businesses, medical facilities, banks and computer/networking/IoT solutions providers. But their requirements are similar: They need to deploy, configure, virtualize, manage, test and charge devices efficiently and securely to eliminate misplaced equipment and reduce the risk of data breaches.

The types of devices that enterprises need to connect and manage include a wide range of computers and handhelds, including:

  • Smart phones
  • Tablets
  • Sensors
  • Scanners
  • Printers
  • Medical devices
  • License dongles
