Digi International has released TransPort WR11, a cellular router that provides a secure and reliable connection for retail and point-of-sale applications. The TransPort WR11 connects ATMs, lottery terminals, payment kiosks, vending machines, and digital signs with cellular networks. The WR11, the newest member of the Digi TransPort family, helps retailers and payment network operators increase network uptime and reduce costs associated with disconnected stores and payment terminals.

“M2M is one of the fastest-growing major new segments for service providers. We forecast global revenue from M2M operator services to more than double between 2012 and 2017, from just under $15 billion to $31 billion.” affirms analyst Godfrey Chua, who directs Infonetics Research’s M2M and The Internet of Things program. “What’s often overlooked about M2M is that it will not only be delivered by way of connectivity capabilities embedded into a machine but also via purpose-built broadband connectivity devices, such as enterprise grade 3G and 4G routers, like the WR11, that will then be attached to the machines.”
The 3G version of the TransPort WR11 is now available for $349 MSRP.
