This strategic move marks another significant step toward enabling the intelligent edge for our customers.”
From Digi International:
- Combining focused hardware and software into a complete offering, Ctek targets industries that require ruggedized products for automation and remote management, such as lighting, agriculture/irrigation, and water/wastewater management.
- Through the acquisition, Digi is uniquely positioned to provide both battery and hardwired options for the control and monitoring of critical infrastructure.
- Ctek’s SkyCloud complements Digi’s Connect Sensor+ with its intuitive visual interface that consolidates access and management of an entire network of individual endpoints.
