Digi - Wireless Device Networking

Device networking for business, develops reliable products and technologies to connect and securely manage local or remote electronic devices over the network or via the web.

"Digi provides the essential layer of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications — the remote monitoring and management that critical applications depend on."

Digi - Wireless Device Networking

External and embedded Wi-Fi products make it easy to add embedded 802.11a/b/g wireless LAN networking to any electronic device, or to connect serial devices over a Wi-Fi network.

The XBee Wi-Fi Cloud Kit includes all of the hardware and software tools needed to build a cloud-connected Wi-Fi prototype in under an hour. The Internet of Things has never been so simple!

XBee Wi-Fi OEM Module

XBee Wi-Fi -  OEM Module - with Fully Integrated Support for Digi Device Cloud.

The XBee Wi-Fi Cloud Kit, which fully integrates into Device Cloud, is a simple way for anyone with an interest in M2M and the Internet of Things to quickly build a hardware prototype and integrate it into an internet-based application.

delabs Notes

Digi is one of the Pioneers of Device Networking or M2M as it may be called now. Some call the Systems applying these technologies as "Internet of Things - IoT" today (Home and Office Automation).

Derived for this Device Networking term, we have "Wireless Sensor(and Actuator) Networks - WSN" in Industrial Automation. In Robotics it is  "Wireless Collaborative Robotics".

If you see above closely, Sensor and Actuators with Intelligence is Robotics. So the dividing line disappears. The human is trying to make the machine more like him, both at work and play. Communications is important for that to happen.
