Digi Intl. and Assured Wireless Corp. (AWC) collaborated to add Power Class 1 high-power user equipment (HPUE) to the Digi TX54 LTE router product line. Digi optimized its LTE router line to use AWC’s patented AW12 USB LTE Modem, which is FirstNet Ready™, to enhance data throughput and connectivity. FirstNet Ready devices support access to the dedicated FirstNet network core, First Priority®, which includes always-on priority and preemption for first responders — and the Band 14 spectrum. The versatility and performance of Digi TX54 routers make them well-suited for mission critical applications that require continuous connectivity, edge computing, and field longevity. They provide secure routing and gateway functionality across wired and wireless communication networks. Local private subnets bridge across public networks to safeguard privacy and integrity. The Digi TX54 is available with both single and dual LTE-Advanced or LTE-Advanced Pro cellular modules. Designed to meet the demands of first responders, units include concurrent and independent dual cellular interfaces that prioritize critical communications. The industrial-grade design supports the most rugged conditions, including vibration and temperature changes.
