Agito Networks Intelligently Mobilizes Unified Communications Applications with Next-Generation Mobile Convergence Products

New Version of RoamAnywhere Introduces Mobile Context with Location-Based Enterprise Presence; Adds New Cost-Savings Capabilities to Leading FMC Platform


SANTA CLARA, Calif. – April 6, 2009 – Agito Networks, Inc., the company delivering innovative solutions in enterprise mobility, today announced the availability of the next-generation version of its award-winning RoamAnywhere Mobility Router.  The RoamAnywhere Mobility Router is the industry’s most powerful enterprise fixed mobile convergence (eFMC) product, purpose built for enterprises to help them mobilize enterprise voice and unified communications applications to increase mobile worker productivity while reducing costs. 


Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere Mobility Router uniquely fuses WiFi, cellular and IP telephony with 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 mobile 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 networks, and natively integrates with enterprises’ existing equipment, including WLAN infrastructure and directory stores.


Unique in the industry, Agito’s new RoamAnywhere release introduces automatic location and context-enhanced enterprise presence functionality, intelligently mobilizing Unified Communications by extending users’ full presence state based on mobile context to users.  The RoamAnywhere Presence solution integrates natively with existing enterprise presence servers, such as Microsoft OCS 2007, and provides mobile workers with the ability to determine the presence for any employee in the enterprise, including desk-bound workers using the native Microsoft Communicator application.


According to Gartner, Inc., “In 2011, 85 percent of context-enriched services will present interfaces based on location or presence information…The information that is most commonly needed will be location and presence.  Location will be leveraged most in mobile, while presence will be more common in fixed settings. Still, given both, most applications that leverage any context information will start with either or both of these. Of course, there can be other context information provided, but this information will be the most consistently and widely provided.”1


RoamAnywhere Presence leverages RoamAnywhere’s location-aware architecture to automatically indicate the location of mobile users, giving the caller intelligence into a user’s presence before attempting a call or using an alternative medium, such as email/text, if the person is unavailable.  Earlier mobile UC solutions apply limited and static presence information to mobile devices.  In addition, these early solutions do not integrate into enterprise UC systems and lack support for PC users.  RoamAnywhere Presence enables users to select the best method of communication by enabling visibility into mobile context, including status and location, to mobile and deskbound users.


“Bryant’s philosophy is that technology is our cornerstone and differentiation, and we look to innovative products such as Agito to give our students a competitive edge,” said Rich Siedzik, Director of Computer & Telecommunications Services at Bryant University.  “We’ve had a good experience with Agito’s RoamAnywhere, and are especially interested in the location-based presence functionality of its 3.0 release.  We see this having a very large impact on the educational experience.  We can see this enhancing the learning experience for students, and improving the productivity of faculty and staff via their campus voice and UC functionalities.  No other solution we have seen can do what Agito does, and students are thrilled to have this.”


RoamAnywhere’s industry lead in handset support continues to grow with the addition of several new CDMA devices, distinguishing Agito as the only eFMC vendor supporting GSM and CDMA devices.  Agito now supports more than 40 mobile handsets globally.  Agito has also further extended its native PBX support with the addition of the Alcatel-Lucent OmniPCX Enterprise and ShoreTel ShoreGear PBX platforms, as well as additional support for Nortel PBXs.  Agito continues to support legacy TDM-based PBXes with trunk-side PBX integration.  As the only eFMC vendor to support both line- and trunk-side PBX integration methods, Agito easily integrates with systems that do not support SIP lines/extensions.


Agito has also added enhanced Least Cost Routing capabilities to its policy engine.  Enterprises can significantly reduce international direct dial and roaming charges with the addition of Agito’s Global Roaming feature set, including Automatic Reverse Dial, Dynamic Anchoring, and Automatic SIM Swap.  Automatic Reverse Dial reduces “calling party pays” rates in European and Asian counties by automatically initiating calls from the enterprise PBX instead of the cellular phone.  Dynamic Anchoring allows enterprises to capitalize on carrier provided “free mobile to mobile calls,” On-Net calling and closed user groups, in addition to routing calls over WiFi, to reduce cellular charges and international direct dialing costs.  Automatic SIM Swap enables business users to use prepaid SIM cards without worry of lost calls and voicemails due to new country specific numbers.


“As presence technologies are gaining a toehold in enterprises’ mix of UC solutions, Agito is the first solution to intelligently communicate users’ full presence state based on mobile context and location,” said Pejman Roshan, Agito Networks Chief Marketing Officer.  “Callers now have intelligence into a user’s presence before making a call, allowing them to select the best method of communication depending how available a person may be.”


 Pricing and Availability


Pricing for the RoamAnywhere solution starts at approximately $9,995 for the 2000 Series and $27,495 for the 4000 Series.  It is available later this month directly and through leading channel partners.  Contact Agito Networks at http://www.agitonetworks.com for more information.

Agito Networks Announces European Availability of its Enterprise-Grade Mobile Convergence Products for Enhanced Mobile UC

European Presence Headed by Former Juniper Networks EMEA VP to Provide Customers with Improved Mobile Voice and Unified Communications, Expanded Wireless Coverage and Reduced Mobile Costs


READING, UK – March 9, 2009 – Agito Networks, Inc., the company delivering new technology in enterprise mobility, today announced the availability of its award-winning RoamAnywhere Mobility Router in Europe.  The RoamAnywhere Mobility Router is the industry’s most powerful enterprise fixed mobile convergence (eFMC) product, purpose built for enterprises to help them increase mobile worker productivity while reducing mobile costs.


Agito Networks has also announced the appointment of Paul Donovan, former VP, EMEA – Global, Strategic and Verticals for Juniper Networks, as its Vice President of European Business and Market Development.


Agito Networks’ award-winning RoamAnywhere Mobility Router enables enterprises of all sizes to drastically reduce their mobile expenses with dynamic least cost routing and use of VoIP over WLAN.  The Agito solution extends IP Telephony and Unified Communications capabilities to mobile phones, providing mobile workers with their deskphone and desktop UC capabilities anywhere, ensuring greater productivity and enabling collaboration inside and outside the office.  The Agito solution accomplishes this by uniquely fusing WiFi, mobile carrier networks, IP telephony, and location information, operating on any and all mobile carrier networks, and natively integrating with enterprises’ existing equipment, including WLAN infrastructure and directory stores (http://www.agitonetworks.com/products).  In addition, RoamAnywhere provides industry-leading <100 ms, automatic handover between WiFi and the mobile network to reduce mobile 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.


 Agito offers the broadest handset and PBX support of any solution in the space, including European support for Alcatel and Shortel PBXs in addition to existing support for Cisco, Avaya, Microsoft, Nortel and Asterisk IP-PBXs.  It has qualified support for more than 35 different types of handsets from Nokia and those running Windows Mobile 6 Standard and Professional operating systems.  Unlike other eFMC solutions that require enterprises to tamper with their enterprise route plans and desk phones during deployment, Agito, with its line-side capabilities, integrates seamlessly into existing customer networks, requiring no changes to the ecosystem.   


“In a lot of enterprises, people are using their mobile phone as their primary phone, instead of their deskphone,” said Gaetan Claeys, Business Development Manager Mobility at Dimension Data.  “Many companies today are thinking of using dual mode phones and are looking for a solution such as Agito to reduce and better control cellular charges and roaming charges, save money by not having to buy deskphones for some users, and improve reachability of users.  Agito’s solution will help our customers better control and reduce their cellular charges while offering to end users enterprise-class features on their mobile device.  As a network integrator with strong expertise in both wireless technology and unified communications, we are now uniquely positioned in the market to provide our customers with complete enterprise mobile telephony solutions.”


 RoamAnywhere offers European customers Dynamic Least Cost Routing, which uses patent-pending algorithms to determine how best to route mobile calls, enterprise calls and country-to-country calls, resulting in significant savings.  For global workforces, RoamAnywhere intelligently re-directs international calls through the enterprise PBX with no user involvement, reducing international charges by a factor of 10 or more in most cases.  For in-building “corridor warriors” and telecommuters, the Mobility Router intelligently routes business calls through high-quality home, hotspot or enterprise Wi-Fi networks, off-loading mobile minutes from cellular to the WLAN. 


Among other features, Agito’s RoamAnywhere introduces into Europe Secure Remote Voice, a first-of-its-kind capability that addresses the challenges of poor in-building mobile coverage outside the enterprise by delivering a secure voice over WLAN (VoWLAN) connection from Wi-Fi networks in homes, hotels and public hotspots.   While other solutions send VoIP traffic unencrypted over the Internet, the RoamAnywhere client uses an application-layer SSL connection to secure VoWLAN from non-enterprise networks.  Users can now realize the cost savings for international roaming as well as enhanced voice quality that VoWLAN provides, in addition to the increased responsiveness of having enterprise PBX connectivity, in a simple-to-use, secure solution.  Secure Remote Voice supports all of Agito’s industry-leading capabilities remotely, including sub-100ms secure handover between Wi-Fi and mobile carrier networks, and access to corporate directories – all without a mobile data plan, which other solutions require.


“Agito is the most scalable and redundant solution that I’ve seen on the market,” said Mr. Claeys.  “It uses proactive handover techniques while most other solutions are only reactive, and the local routing capabilities are very important for companies looking to reduce cellular charges.  It has a very beautiful product interface which is easy to configure, easy to use, and provides a lot of monitoring capabilities.  In addition to the unique Secure Remote Voice functionality, what impresses me the most about Agito is that the system was easy to setup and all IP-PBX features were working in a minute.”


“Agito Networks has garnered its share of industry accolades and customer traction in the U.S., and I’m seeing significant interest from European end users and channel partners alike,” said Mr. Donovan.  “Mobile operators have yet to solve their issues with FMC or deliver enterprise mobility to their customers, paving the way for Agito.  I’m excited to join the company and benefit from the clear greenfield opportunities here in Europe to deliver robust enterprise convergence mobilizing enterprises’ unified communications and voice applications.”


 Pricing and Availability


Pricing for the RoamAnywhere solution starts at approximately £ 6,960 for the 2000 Series and £ 19,150 for the 4000 Series.  It is available today directly and through leading UK-based channel partners.  Contact Agito Networks at http://www.agitonetworks.com for more information.


 About Paul Donovan


Paul Donovan joins Agito with more than 20 years of successful sales and management experience in the European IT industry.  Previously, Mr. Donovan was the VP, EMEA – Global, Strategic and Verticals for Juniper Networks, where he was responsible for leading key Global, Strategic accounts and Vertical business development across the EMEA theater.  Prior to that, he led Juniper’s UK/I/ZA (United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa) enterprise business, showing double-digit quarterly growth while in the role for two years, and building a world-class team. He joined Juniper through the acquisition of Neoteris, where he was the VP of EMEA Sales, growing the category-leading business at almost 100% quarterly, for six quarters.


Previously, Mr. Donovan worked at Hewlett Packard, where he ran the Performance Management business for EMEA and Asia Pacific. He joined HP through its acquisition of Trinagy, where as VP of International Sales he grew the business from zero to more than 30 percent of worldwide revenues.  During this time, the International team was the fastest growing sales region in the company and achieved in excess of 100 percent growth annually.  Mr. Donovan was also a key member of the integration team following the merger.  Prior to Trinagy, Mr. Donovan worked at 3Com where he led major accounts sales.

Agito Networks Customer Selected as a Finalist for Leading Analyst Firm’s Wireless & Mobile Excellence Award

CTO from Anthony Marano Company to Present a Case Study on Enterprise Mobile Convergence Using Agito’s RoamAnywhere at Leading Analyst Firm’s Wireless & Mobile Summit 2009


SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Feb. 10, 2009 – Agito Networks, Inc., the company delivering new technology in enterprise mobility, today announced that one of its enterprise mobile convergence customers has been named as a finalist for the Gartner Wireless & Mobile Excellence Award. 


Selection of the finalists for Gartner’s Wireless & Mobile Excellence Award was determined by Gartner analysts.  As a finalist, Chris Nowak, CTO of Agito Networks customer Anthony Marano Company, will present at the Gartner Wireless & Mobile Summit 2009, to be held Feb. 23 – 25 in Chicago.


Located near downtown Chicago, Anthony Marano Company serves the Midwest with fine fresh produce from its state-of-the-art distribution center.  The 400,000 square foot facility contains 73 docks to receive and ship more than 1,400 types of fresh produce.  With Agito’s RoamAnywhere Mobility Router, Anthony Marano Company enables continuous high-quality voice coverage for its mobile produce buyers and sellers, which need to be accessible at all times to receive and fulfill an average of 3,000 orders throughout the day.


According to Nowak, Anthony Marano Company’s large metal and concrete facility makes cellular communications impossible for the staff which is constantly on the move between produce areas, shipping docks, receiving docks, and internal and nearby offices.  Accessibility is critical because the staff deals with fresh produce, a perishable commodity.  A missed call could easily cost the company thousands of dollars, Nowak said.


 “We are more successful and make more money when our buyers and sales staff get calls the first time around, and calls don’t land in voice mail,” said Nowak.  “In addition to addressing our coverage issues, Agito delivers high-quality voice, which is critical for us because our handheld devices are the primary means of communication.  RoamAnywhere’s unique seamless handoff capability is a technological leap from previous solutions we have seen and tried.  Its high availability is also very important to us.”


Nowak noted that Anthony Marano Company’s previous mobile convergence solution was an Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) system, which did not integrate into the company’s Avaya Definity 8710 PBX or give mobile users the unified communications functionalities they required.  In addition to Agito’s RoamAnywhere and Avaya’s PBX, Anthony Marano Company’s enterprise mobile convergence ecosystem also includes T-Mobile and AT&T cellular service, Nokia E66 and E71 Series smart phones, and Meru Networks WLAN access points.


“Agito gives us a competitive advantage because we now have the ability to respond quickly,” said Nowak.  “RoamAnywhere offers us the whole package, and our users they are impressed with the voice quality, address look up synchronization, and speed of handover moving inside and out.  Agito lets us be productive and mobile with the fastest seamless handover we’ve seen, unlike previous solutions we’ve had, and it provides us with excellent voice quality over WiFi.  It gives us a big boost in productivity, and was easy to deploy on the administrative side.”


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.


“This is a distinct honor for one of our valued customers, and we are pleased to see them recognized for their efforts,” said Pejman Roshan, Agito Networks vice president of marketing and the company’s co-founder.  “The industry is always interested in real-world benefits of enterprise mobile convergence solutions, and Anthony Marano Company is a good example of how organizations can improve voice coverage and increase productivity and revenue by leveraging a state-of-the-art enterprise mobile convergence solution such as RoamAnywhere.”

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.
