Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere Mobility Router Named a Top 10 Product of the Year by eWEEK Magazine

RoamAnywhere Mobile Convergence Solution Rated as the Top Enterprise FMC Product of 2008, as a Result of eWEEK’s Technical Labs Review


SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Dec. 17, 2008 – Agito Networks, Inc., the company delivering innovative solutions in enterprise mobility, today announced that eWEEK, an industry leader for strategic technology information, has named Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere Mobility Router as one of the Top 10 Products of the Year. 


At the end of each year, eWEEK Labs analysts look back on the products they have reviewed and pick the ones that stand out for their innovation and ability to meet the ever-changing – and increasingly challenging – needs of the enterprise.  According to eWEEK, more than 150 products where reviewed by eWEEK Labs in 2008, and the products on this year’s list form the foundation of the next-generation enterprise.  For the list of Top 10 Products of the Year, see: http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Enterprise-Applications/The-Top-10-Products-of-the-Year/


“With mobile phones becoming the preferred mode of voice communication for many employees, mobile phone costs are skyrocketing for many companies,” wrote Andrew Garcia, eWEEK Labs analyst.  “FMC (fixed mobile convergence) solutions solve this problem, allowing end users to seamlessly leverage WiFi for voice over IP communications while using their corporate PBX profile on the road.  With its new emphasis on enterprise-grade redundancy and security – as well as integration into Cisco’s Motion to aid in roaming decisions among networks – Agito’s RoamAnywhere Solution builds upon its already outstanding fingerprint location deterministics, line-side PBX integration, and solid client-side software.  All of this provides an outstanding solution to help extend companies’ existing infrastructure to the mobile work force.”


“Among the nearly 20 awards Agito Networks has earned in 2008, being recognized by eWEEK as one of 2008’s best products as a result of a hands-on technical product review is a significant honor,” said Pejman Roshan, Agito Networks vice president of marketing and the company’s co-founder.  “Agito Networks and eWEEK share a similar focus on the enterprise, which rang through in the technical review write up.  Customers are selecting RoamAnywhere for its unique enterprise-class capabilities for mobile Unified Communications and convergence, including scalability to thousands of users, high availability, security, Dual Persona, ease of set up, and native integration into WLAN environments and directory stores.  Also, a primary focus of the review was seamless handover – all the industry players claim it, this review and award prove Agito has it.”


Agito Networks’ award-winning RoamAnywhere Mobility Router uniquely fuses WiFi, cellular, IP telephony, and location information, improving the accessibility and responsiveness of mobile workers, while drastically reducing mobile costs (http://www.agitonetworks.com/products).  RoamAnywhere mobilizes voice and unified communications for enterprises of all sizes, extending PBX and deskphone features to mobile phones.  In addition, RoamAnywhere provides industry-leading handover between WiFi and cellular networks to reduce cellular costs and improve in-building coverage.  Purpose-built for the enterprise, RoamAnywhere uniquely offers high availability, redundancy, security, enterprise scalability, and the industry’s broadest mobile handset and IP-PBX support.  It works with all cellular network technology, and natively integrates with enterprises’ existing equipment, including WLAN infrastructure and directory stores.
