Montreal, Canada – April 19, 2016 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components founded in 1968 by Robert Miller with corporate headquarters in Montreal, recently announced immediate shipping availability of Digi’s XBee Gateway, with scalable device management.
The XBee Gateway provides a low-cost, programmable solution to connect networks of XBee-enabled devices to IP networks. With a simple, open-source Python development environment, this gateway enables custom applications to run locally while interfacing across existing Ethernet/Wi-Fi/cellular networks for WAN connectivity to cloud-based software applications.
XBee Gateway products can be managed remotely via Device Cloud. Device Cloud allows users to remotely manage thousands of deployed devices, supporting features like remote firmware upgrades and event alarms.
XBee and XBee-PRO ZigBee modules are ideal for applications in the energy and controls markets where manufacturing efficiencies are critical.
