Agito Networks Moving Corporate Headquarters to Larger Facility to Accommodate Rapid Company Growth

Company Growing to Meet Increasing Demand for its Enterprise Fixed Mobile Convergence Products; Continued Expansion with New Products and into New Markets Planned


SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Aug. 21, 2008 – Agito Networks, Inc.™, the award-winning company delivering new technology in enterprise mobility, today announced that it is moving its headquarters to near-by Santa Clara, Calif., next week.  Agito Networks is significantly increasing its investment in product development, sales, and distribution, and the new facility will accommodate the growth needed to fulfill the rising demand for Agito’s enterprise fixed mobile convergence (eFMC) products.  The new building nearly triples the size of Agito’s current office space, and dramatically increases the amount of lab space available for research and new product development.


Agito Networks’ award-winning RoamAnywhere™ Mobility Router is the industry’s first and only business mobile convergence platform that uses RF-based, location-aware technologies to reliably mobilize voice and data applications over 802.11 wireless LANs (VoWLAN), while remaining agnostic to enterprise customers’ choices of mobile carriers and equipment vendors (http://www.agitonetworks.com/products).  It supports all leading IP-PBX and WLAN equipment vendors to uniquely fuse 802.11 wireless LANs, 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.  Its patent-pending technology ensures that in-building calls stay on the enterprise WLAN (using VoWLAN), to reduce cellular expenses and eliminate dropped or poor quality calls. 


“While many technology companies these days are experiencing declining workforces and financial difficulties, there are still some bright spots in the tech sector,” said Michael Finneran, principal of analyst firm dBrn Associates, Inc.  “Enterprise mobility, fixed mobile convergence, and mobile unified communications are clearly hot, and companies like Agito Networks are in a good position to capitalize on that.”


During its first year, Agito has experienced significant customer traction and rapid growth, which has fueled the need to increase its sales, distribution, and support infrastructure.  During the last six months, Agito has acquired a number of new revenue customers, and has engaged in many more trials for its enterprise mobility products.  The company closed a significant round of funding, added to its executive team, and has earned 11 prestigious accolades from various independent industry organizations.  With an expanding channel partner program, Agito continues to meet strong demand nationwide, and plans to expand internationally.


“Our new larger offices will better facilitate our growth and need to continue staffing,” said Pejman Roshan, Agito Networks vice president of marketing and a company founder.  “Our physical expansion is evidence of the growing traction and success the company is having, fueled by rising demand from domestic and international enterprises, resellers and distribution partners, and carriers.  With our innovation we will aggressively work toward fulfilling the needs of our current and future customers, as well as continue to shape the direction of the enterprise mobility market.”


Numerous independent authorities have recognized Agito Networks’ leadership.  Computer Reseller News named Agito one of the year’s Coolest Emerging Technology Companies, while InfoWorld distinguished Agito CTO Timothy Olson with one of its CTO 25 Awards of 2008.  Agito earned a Red Herring 100 Award, while VON Magazine named it a Top Innovator Award winner.  Its RoamAnywhere solution earned Product of the Year honors from Unified Communications and Internet Telephony magazines, while it earned finalist status in eWEEK’s Excellence Awards and CTIA’s Emerging Technology Awards programs.


 New Location and Address


Starting on Monday, Aug. 25, Agito’s new headquarters location will be 3255 Scott Blvd., Building 3, Santa Clara, Calif., 95054.  The main telephone number will be (408) 919-8000, and the corporate fax number will be (408) 919-8001.
