Agito Networks, Inc., a company pioneering new technology in enterprise mobility, today announced that the next generation of enterprise mobility products – its RoamAnywhere Mobility Router – was recognized as one of the 10 “Head-Turning Products” at last month’s Interop New York expo by CMP Channel Group’s CRN magazine. CRN is the publication providing news analysis and perspective to the solution provider community.
Selected by CRN from the more than 200 event exhibitors, Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere Mobility Router was making its first public debut at the exposition, which attracted more than 7,500 attendees. According to CRN, RoamAnywhere was recognized for its unique RF-based, location-aware wireless technology bringing cellular calls onto the WLAN when users are in-building, and vice versa. CRN also highlighted RoamAnywhere’s integration with enterprise IP-PBXs, delivering enterprise call management features to the mobile handset.
Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere Mobility Router is the industry’s first and only business mobile convergence platform that uses RF-based, location-aware technologies to better mobilize voice and data applications, while remaining agnostic to enterprise customers’ choices of mobile carriers and equipment vendors. For the first time, enterprises can easily mobilize voice for their workforce, and truly reap the improved productivity and cost savings benefits that WiFi provides for enterprise fixed mobile convergence (eFMC). With the RoamAnywhere Mobility Router deployed, enterprises can benefit from improved in-building coverage, cost savings on cellular expenses, mobile policy controls, and enhanced user productivity.
“CRN provides resellers with important information they need to help increase sales, and we were pleased to receive this recognition during our launch event last month,” said Mark Cashman, Agito Networks vice president of business development. “The industry response and traction we are seeing since the company’s launch, including at Interop, is validation that the industry has been waiting for an RF-based product to address their wireless cost, coverage and control issues, while improving mobile user productivity. Our mobility router is proving attractive to a wide range of customers, and offers channel partners a large market to go after.”
The Agito Networks RoamAnywhere Mobility Router
Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere is an enterprise mobility solution delivered on a network appliance and mobile client for Nokia/Symbian and Windows Mobile dual mode phones that enables organizations to mobilize their voice and data applications. It is the first and only business mobile convergence solution using RF-based, location-aware technologies to better mobilize enterprise voice and data applications, while working with all carriers and leading equipment vendors.
The Agito Networks RoamAnywhere Mobility Router provides enterprises with cellular cost savings, IT control and visibility over mobile devices and usage, robust in-building wireless coverage and productivity benefits yet unseen in a mobile convergence product. The solution consists of the Agito RoamAnywhere Mobility Router in the network and RoamAnywhere Client agents running on mobile phones. The Agito RoamAnywhere Mobility Router is delivered in a hardened, turn-key appliance for easy deployment in enterprise networks. It offers a simple, intuitive web management GUI, and is scalable to thousands of users. The Agito RoamAnywhere Client, which supports multiple mobile phone operating systems, has a small footprint that is installed over the air. RoamAnywhere’s hybrid architecture separates the voice control traffic from data traffic, reducing appliance load, response time, and overhead.
