Agito Networks, Inc., a company pioneering new technology in enterprise mobility, today announced that Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC®) Unified Communications magazine has named Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere Mobility Router as a recipient of its Product of the Year Award.
The award-winning RoamAnywhere Mobility Router uniquely fuses 802.11 wireless LANs (WLANs), enterprise IP telephony, and the carrier cellular network, improving mobile worker accessibility and responsiveness to increase mobile worker productivity. Agito’s innovative, patent-pending location-aware technology allows enterprises to mobilize voice by taking full advantage of their 802.11 WLAN deployments as a low-cost alternative to cellular networks for in-building enterprise mobility. Leveraging voice over WLAN (VoWLAN) enables enterprises to reduce cellular expenses by as much as 60 percent, and avoid deploying costly, carrier-specific equipment to address poor cellular coverage. To ensure a seamless user experience, the RoamAnywhere Mobility Router provides the industry’s fastest, sub-second, automatic handover between the enterprise WLAN networks and any carrier cellular network
“Agito Networks has proven they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace. Unified Communications is pleased to grant a 2007 Product of the Year Award to their RoamAnywhere Mobility Router,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Editor-in-Chief of Unified Communications magazine. “We’re proud to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to future innovative solutions from Agito Networks.”
“Unified Communications magazine is a new, leading publication helping educate enterprises on unified communications solutions, and we are pleased to receive this honor from them,” said Pejman Roshan, Agito Networks vice president of marketing and a company founder. “Agito’s RoamAnywhere Mobility Router continues to receive accolades throughout the industry due to its fastest, automatic handover between WiFi and cellular networks, and its unique ability to scale to enterprise requirements. The industry recognizes the benefits of a location-based approach to mobile convergence, and the advantages it brings over prior generation solutions. Customers validate Agito as a superior way to address their wireless cost, coverage and control issues, while improving mobile user productivity.”
The RoamAnywhere Mobility Router is unlike any enterprise mobility solution seen to date. The patent-pending, RF-based location aware technology ensures that in-building calls stay on the enterprise WLAN (using VoWLAN), to reduce cellular expenses and eliminate dropped or poor quality calls. Agito’s patent pending sub-second, automatic handover of calls between WiFi and cellular is transparent to users. Agito’s solution gives IT administrators the confidence to roll out VoWLAN across their enterprise, knowing the user experience will be as good as their wired phones, and that they can significantly reduce cellular expenses.
