Worldwide Deployment
- Digi offers frequencies from 2.4GHz (global) and sub-GHz
solutions for regional ISM solutions, as well as 3GPP standards
like LTE Cat 1, LTE-M, NB-IoT and 3G.
- Available with power management options from 10uA up to 1W
for flexibility in range and power consumption
- Pre-certified for use in various regions of the world
- In one design footprint, XBee modules support multiple
wireless protocols, RF frequencies, and cellular standards
around the globe. This flexibility lowers manufacturing and
engineering costs and offers OEMs ability to quickly expand
their roadmap
Programmable versions are also available in several of these products.

Digi XBee® Family Features Comparison - continued
Digi XBee modules leverage multiple types of wireless protocols which are suitable for many different network architectures.
These protocols can be grouped in two categories: “point-to-multipoint” and “mesh networking” which are explained below:
Point-to-Multipoint Networking
Point-to-multipoint communication is accomplished by a one-
to-one or one-to-many connection, providing multiple paths
from a single location to multiple locations. Here are some of
the protocols that fall under point-to-multipoint:
Mesh Networking
Mesh networking is used where the range between two points
may be beyond the range of the two radios located at those
points, but intermediate radios are in place that could forward on
any messages to and from the desired radios.
802.15.4
IEEE 802.15.4 is a standard which specifies the physical
layer and media access control and is ideal for applications
requiring low latency and predictable communication timing.
802.11 (Wi-Fi)
IEEE 802.11, or more commonly known as Wi-Fi, has a variety
of sub-protocols represented by the suffix a/b/g/n/ac with
varying degrees of bandwidth.
Cellular
With the introduction of protocols such as LTE Cat 1, LTE-M, and
NB-IoT, cellular data rates have come down to a point where it
should be considered for certain low power applications.
ZigBee
ZigBee is an open, global wireless standard developed to
address the needs of low-cost, low-power M2M networks.
DigiMesh
DigiMesh is similar to ZigBee mesh networking, but unlike
ZigBee, DigiMesh only has one node-type that can route data
and are interchangeable. DigiMesh is a proprietary, low-power
mesh networking protocol with a single node-type, and
capable of scaling for larger networks.
Thread
Thread is an open, global, IPv6 based, low power mesh
networking protocol that is simple to setup and use.
