Networking devices all have different ports, specifications and supported protocols. But what’s inside is just as important – enabling the features and capabilities that support reliability, security and more.
Watch our recorded webinar on the Digi Accelerated Linux operating system (DAL OS) – the intelligence in Digi routers and infrastructure management devices that enables sophisticated capabilities, high reliability, customization and more.

Thank you again for attending our session on Software-Defined Network Advantages of Digi Cellular Routers. Here are the questions that followed the presentation and their answers. If you have additional questions, be sure to reach out.
Nothing is required on the third-party router for VRRP failover. Digi Surelink® on the Digi router will set up some internal routes and perform connectivity validations through the third-party router. If those validations fail, the Digi router automatically promotes itself to be the VRRP primary. While it’s the VRRP primary, it still performs Surelink validations to the third-party router; once those validations pass again, the Digi router automatically demotes itself to its original VRRP backup state.
There are two answers here:
Our Digi TX54 or TX64 products, thanks to their rugged design, multiple Ethernet ports, high-speed LTE-Advanced modems, and strong Wi-Fi range.
This is available through the metrics and device history available in our Digi Remote Manager® (Digi RM) portal. In Digi RM, you can view the history of the device’s cellular connection and stability over time. This data can also be viewed as a graph, exported into a datasheet, and even queried using Digi Remote Manager’s comprehensive API.
Yes. Multiple VLANs can be tagged to one or more Ethernet ports, and those VLANs are then trunked. You can then set up your firewall and routing to control what type of access each VLAN receives. Also, Quality-of-Service (QoS) policies can be set up for each VLAN to prioritize/de-prioritize each segment of the network and allocate a percentage of bandwidth for each network.
There are several key benefits on the new DAL operating system compared to the OS that runs on the WR11, WR21, and WR31 products. To list a few:
If there are any particular features or functional differences between the WR11/WR21/WR31 products you are using compared to their IX10/IX20 counterparts that run our DAL OS, please provide this feedback to Digi sales or support! We strive to make your transition to newer Digi cellular routers as seamless and easy as possible.
Yes. However, not all Digi cellular routers contain modems that support carrier aggregation. Only LTE CAT 6 or higher cellular modems support carrier aggregation, also called LTE-Advanced. The following products support carrier aggregation:
5G is one of Digi’s core strategies. For details and product announcements, please visit our Press Release page and our Journey to 5G page.
Refer to the Journey to 5G page, as well as these additional resources:
Different Digi cellular routers have different types of cellular modems in them. I’d recommend you check out the datasheet for the products you’re interested in, which list the LTE bands each product supports. If you want a quick list of the LTE bands supported in our various Digi CORE® LTE modems, refer to the Specifications tab on the Digi CORE Plugin page. If you’re also interested in the cellular certifications for various products, refer to our searchable Certifications page.
Please contact Digi sales for assistance with our Digi Remote Manager offerings.
Your Digi device is set up to sync with Digi Remote Manager by default. All you need to do is set up an account in the portal and add your devices. Digi Remote Manager offers a free 90-day trial account for up to 25 devices, and several subscriptions once you're ready to move forward. Visit shop.digi.com for more details.
Intelliflow tracks all traffic going through the Digi router. It then reports the top 10 local clients and top 10 destinations based on total data usage so you can easily sift through the noise to find out where the bulk of your data usage is coming from.
A set of common Python modules come pre-compiled in the firmware of our Digi routers. The firmware also includes Python PIP for easily installing additional modules as needed.
