Industry Casts Nearly 2,000 Votes for Mobile Star Awards; Rates Agito’s RoamAnywhere Mobility Router, CTO Timothy Olson, Customer HRC Highest in their Respective Awards Categories
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Dec. 21, 2009 – Agito Networks, Inc., the company delivering innovative solutions in enterprise mobility, today announced that it swept top honors in its three nominated awards categories in the eighth annual MobileVillage® Mobile Star Awards program, as a result of industry voting. MobileVillage is a 15-year leader in market development and news services about mobile technology.
As in past years, the Mobile Star Awards program showcases “Best Of” entries in dozens of categories covering mobile apps, enterprise mobile software, wireless network products, enterprise success stories, mobile industry visionaries, and more. Winners were chosen by subscribers of MobileVillage’s “Go Mobile” – a free e-newsletter that delivers headlines and links from top mobile technology stories on popular websites such as CNET, Engadget, Gizmodo, PC Magazine, Computerworld, AppScout, and others. “Go Mobile” was launched nearly ten years ago and is now published every three weeks for thousands of readers.
Agito Networks won three Superstar Awards, the highest awards given, for being distinguished as having the best Unified Communications/Fixed Mobile Converge product of 2009, and for having the most notable wireless customer success story and wireless industry visionary of the year, as well. The specific categories Agito won in are:
• Enterprise Software: Fixed Mobile Convergence/Unified Communications – Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere Mobility Router is the industry’s most powerful mobile UC product, purpose built for enterprises to help them mobilize enterprise voice and UC applications to increase mobile worker productivity while reducing costs.
• Success Story: Wireless Network – Hertford Regional College instantly connects staff to PBX extensions via their mobile phones both on and off campus, and the college has cut its monthly mobile phone charges in half with Agito’s RoamAnywhere.
• Visionary: Wireless Network Solutions – Agito’s CTO Timothy Olson created Agito’s industry-leading FMC/mobile UC product, and with his team developed new techniques and solutions for delivering enterprise-grade VoIP on mobile phones when it was considered not possible.
“Because â€˜Go Mobile’ readers are the industry’s most savvy mobile business users, Mobile Star Awards winners can claim they are the users’ choice,” says Jon Covington, MobileVillage founder and president. “Winners are chosen by real users based on real results, not hype. Brand new mobile services competed on equal footing with well-established solutions, and both the nominees and winners are respected in the mobile industry as the leaders to watch.”
This year, nearly 2,000 votes were received as part of the program. All categories and winners are listed on MobileVillage.com at www.mobilevillage.com/awards.htm.
“These top Mobile Star honors are some of the 30-plus awards Agito has earned over the past two years where the company has been recognized directly by the industry,” said Pejman Roshan, Agito Networks’ Chief Marketing Officer. “This is gratifying because, while other companies are abandoning the notion of mobile VoIP, customers are validating Agito’s direction of continuing to innovate and offer leading solutions in this important area for the delivery of UC applications anywhere. Cost cutting is a significant initiative these days, and customers are turning to Agito to not only help reduce their spending on mobility, but also improve the productivity of today’s workforces.”
