Digi XBee® 3 Low-Power LTE-M/NB-IoT, GNSS, no SIM

Added to your shopping cart

The Digi XBee 3 global cellular module is a cutting-edge, compact module engineered for rapid integration of cellular IoT capabilities. This innovative solution is equipped with cellular and BLE connectivity with end-device carrier certifications, and is designed to create secure wireless devices featuring global connectivity and positioning capabilities. A combination of the XBee ecosystem and cellular functionality makes for a simple system for working with data over a cellular connection.

Cellular LTE-M and NB-IoT are optimized for low-power, low data applications such as asset tracking and smart sensors (under 5MB of data per month). Global connectivity is immediately available with the XBee 3 global cellular. It features an excellent power saving mode to extend battery life and deployment time. It does not come with a SIM card or data plan, but we have options available. Check out the related products section.

To augment cellular IoT development, the XBee 3 package comes complete with an array of MicroPython programming resources, the intuitive XBee Studio tool suite, and a 12-month subscription to the Digi Remote Manager® for each module, enabling remote software updates and monitoring. The Digi XBee Studio, a powerful tool designed to accelerate development, production, and deployment, further enhances cellular IoT implementation.
