Cellular-IoT prototypes in days! Digi and SparkFun combine for a complete edge-to-cloud solution 

In another ipXchange interview with Digi, this time at CES 2024, Guy chats with Bob about the XBee 3 cellular modems and a new complete edge-to-cloud sensor solution that has been created in partnership with SparkFun Electronics. 

The XBee 3 modems offer global LTE and Cat 1, Cat 4, or LTE-M + NB-IoT connectivity, depending on the model, and Digi has combined these with a SparkFun development board that can easily interface with a huge number of sensor boards thanks to the Qwicc Connect System. 

Additionally, Digi supports this build with a cloud-based dashboard for easy monitoring of all sensor data coming into the system; in this demo, it is most notably the honk of a horn. As David explains, this set up can be used to quickly develop IoT devices for applications such as predictive-maintenance and smart-building systems. That said, the range of sensors offered by SparkFun covers many more applications where Digi’s cellular connectivity shines best, such as smart agriculture.
