Digi XBee Cellular Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) is a low-cost, low power wide area (LPWA) embedded cellular modem designed specifically to handle small amounts of data over existing cellular networks, provide improved range, and optimized for maximum battery life.

The modem is programmable, with support for custom MicroPython applications running directly onboard, allowing users to more efficiently manage their devices and eliminating the need for an external microcontroller in certain use-cases.
It includes the full suite of standard Digi XBee API frames and AT commands, so existing customers can simply drop this modem into their existing designs to instantly achieve cellular integration, without the pain and hassle of doing a complete re-design.
