MINNETONKA, Minn., Sept. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Digi International®, (NASDAQ: DGII, www.digi.com), a leading global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity products and services, today announced that it has earned the prestigious Silver status in the Golden Bridge Awards® for Digi Connect® Sensor in the Information Technology and Security Innovations - Best Product or Service of the Year/Internet of Things category.
Digi Connect Sensor is a battery-powered, enterprise-ready, cellular gateway solution for wireless connectivity at locations with either no power or low power. In offering a plug-and-play solution, Connect Sensor allows for remote sensor monitoring to be deployed in environments previously considered too harsh, remote or not economically viable.
"It's an honor to be named a winner by Golden Bridge Awards for this esteemed industry and peer recognition," said Kevin C. Riley, chief operating officer, Digi International. "These awards are a testament to Digi International's commitment to helping companies overcome business challenges such as remote monitoring, and makes it both economically and logistically feasible to install and support a solution, especially in their most critical operational areas."
Because it provides remote monitoring without the need for additional infrastructure, power supplies or third-party applications, Digi Connect Sensor is ideal for energy, water, industrial and government installations that need to expand monitoring capabilities due to oversight requirements, or to increase operational efficiencies as well as implement Industry 4.0 or Smart City initiatives. With the versatility and flexibility to accommodate off-the-shelf sensors, such as flow, level, pressure and environmental conditions, Digi Connect Sensor will help make sensor use ubiquitous.
The coveted annual Golden Bridge Awards program encompasses the world's best in organizational performance, innovations, products and services, executives and management teams, women in business and the professions, innovations, best deployments, product management, public relations, marketing, corporate communications, international business, and customer satisfaction programs from every major industry in the world. Organizations from all over the world are eligible to submit nominations including public and private, for-profit and non-profit, largest to smallest and new start-ups.
Winners will be honored in San Francisco on Monday, September 12, 2016 during the annual Red Carpet Golden Bridge Awards Ceremony.
