Agito Networks, Inc.™, a company pioneering new technology in enterprise mobility, today announced that Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC®) INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine has named Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere™ Mobility Router as a recipient of its 2007 Product of the Year Award. INTERNET TELEPHONY has been the VoIP authority since 1998™.
In its 10th Annual Product of the Year Awards program, INTERNET TELEPHONY recognized Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere Mobility Router from nearly 500 other products. According to the magazine, RoamAnywhere was selected because of its advancements of VoIP and IP telecommunications technologies, and its ability to address real needs in the marketplace. A full list of Product of the Year winners will be published in the February 2008 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
“Agito Networks has proven they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace. INTERNET TELEPHONY 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 INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. “We’re proud to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from Agito Networks in the future.”
Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere Mobility Router is the industry’s first and only business mobile convergence platform that uses RF-based, location-aware technologies to better mobilize voice and data applications, while remaining agnostic to enterprise customers’ choices of mobile carriers and equipment vendors. For the first time, enterprises can easily mobilize voice for their workforce with Voice over WLAN (VoWLAN), and truly reap the improved productivity and cost savings benefits that WiFi provides for enterprise fixed mobile convergence (eFMC). With the RoamAnywhere Mobility Router deployed, enterprises can benefit from improved in-building coverage, cost savings on cellular expenses, mobile policy controls, and enhanced user productivity.
“INTERNET TELEPHONY has been a leading publication for the convergence industry for nearly a decade, and we were pleased to receive this honor from them,” said Pejman Roshan, Agito Networks vice president of marketing and a company founder. “The industry continues to recognize and validate Agito Networks’ RF-based, location-aware approach to mobile convergence as a superior way to address enterprises’ wireless cost, coverage and control issues, while improving mobile user productivity. The year 2008 will mark an exciting time of growth, further product differentiation, and customer and partner acquisition for the company.”
