Digi International®, a leading global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity products and services, today announced that multiple models of its Digi TransPort® product line have been certified to operate with Verizon’s 4G LTE Private Network Traffic Management solution, having achieved technical acceptance from Verizon’s Solutions Lab.
Verizon Private Network Traffic Management (PNTM) is an enhancement to the 4G LTE Private Network that provides a premium and differentiated network experience. It allows organizations to create IP traffic preferences for business critical applications and to achieve more predictable application performance during times of peak network demand.
“With this certification, we’re offering a powerful, pre-certified, enterprise-grade LTE router that takes advantage of all the benefits of the Verizon Private Network Traffic Management Solution,” said Joel Young, chief technology officer, Digi International. “Together, organizations that rely on mission-critical communications in both business and government can achieve the benefit of priority access.”
Private Network Traffic Management relies on three core LTE network pillars to provide more predictable application performance during heavy network utilization: traffic priority (a support structure on how packets are treated within the 4G LTE Private Network), admission priority (a framework to allocate and retain network resources during heavy network utilization) and access priority (provides the network mechanism to allocate radio resources to a subscriber during heavy network utilization). In order to receive certification, Verizon requires that the 4G LTE device is capable of performing Private Network Traffic Management functionality only on the LTE access technology, should support network-initiated Quality-of-Service (QoS) for both default and dedicated bearer using the 3GPP standard and should route IP packets to the dedicated bearer based on TFT information provided by the Verizon Wireless network.
Digi TransPort enterprise LTE routers that have been certified include the WR21, WR31, WR44, WR44R, and WR44RR. Digi TransPort routers are rugged, versatile enterprise LTE routers built for critical applications operating in harsh environments featuring advanced security and monitoring and the intelligence to operate on nearly any 3G or 4G LTE network in the world. Designed for critical infrastructure environments, Digi TransPort routers address industries that manage a large number of remote assets installed in challenging environments where onsite visits are infrequent or impractical. In addition, by supporting global HSPA+ and 4G LTE networks, the Digi TransPort product line provides customers the flexibility to future-proof their router installation as wireless network requirements evolve.
