The acquisition of Haxiot significantly enhances Digi’s embedded systems portfolio and immediately extends the company’s market reach with a complete LoRaWAN offering including embedded modules, gateways, network server solution, and SaaS offering. The easy-to-provision and deploy solution complements Digi’s embedded offerings, which includes its market-leading Digi XBee® ecosystem and Digi ConnectCore® system-on-modules. The combination gives customers a broad set of offerings to choose from as they create full stack IoT applications.
In addition to the LoRaWAN product portfolio, Haxiot brings innovative industrial IoT capabilities that deliver edge intelligence, field deployment tools and rich data, and value-added services.
This acquisition comes during a time of significant growth for LoRa-based systems. According to Semtech, the organization that created the underlying LoRa standard, LoRa is expected to move into the mainstream in 2021 with significant market adoption and an estimated 40% compound annual growth rate over the next several years.
