Agito Networks, Inc., the award-winning company delivering new technology in enterprise mobility, today announced that eWEEK, an industry leader for strategic technology information, has named Agito’s RoamAnywhere Mobility Router as a finalist award winner in the Mobile & Wireless Awards Category of eWEEK’s 8th annual Excellence Awards program.
The eWEEK Excellence Awards program provides the benchmark by which enterprise IT professionals can assess a wide range of technology products and services. In selecting this year’s finalists, a panel of eWEEK editors applied their industry and technology expertise to evaluate hundreds of products and services, based on the following criteria:
• Practical integration of emerging technologies
• Suitability to task
• Cost effectiveness
• Potential for helping companies create business efficiencies
• Potential for helping companies develop competitive advantage
“The job of selecting and buying technology has never been easy, but it’s only getting harder as the development pace quickens, the deployment and platform options grow, and the stakes get higher,” said eWEEK Editor Debra Donston. “The goal of the eWEEK Excellence Awards program, now in its eighth year, is to make that job a little bit easier by pointing IT buyers to the most promising new enterprise products and technologies.”
“Being the only enterprise FMC product recognized by eWEEK in its Excellence Awards program is a significant honor for Agito Networks,” said Pejman Roshan, Agito Networks vice president of marketing and a company founder. “Agito Networks and eWEEK share a similar focus on the enterprise. Customers are selecting RoamAnywhere for its unique enterprise-class capabilities for mobile Unified Communications and convergence, including scalability to thousands of users, high availability, and native integration into WLAN environments and directory stores.”
Proceeds from the program’s entry fees will be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, for use in technology-enabled programs.
About Agito’s RoamAnywhere Mobility Router
The award-winning RoamAnywhere is the industry’s first and only business mobile convergence platform that uses RF-based, location-aware technologies to reliably mobilize voice over 802.11 wireless LANs (VoWLAN) and data applications, while remaining agnostic to enterprise customers’ choices of mobile carriers. 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. Agito Networks’ comprehensive set of routing metrics used to determine the time and place for WiFi/cellular network handover includes network cost, load, reliability, delay, location, packet loss, battery life, call or session quality, and signal strength to route mobile device voice calls, enabling fast, automatic call routing between WiFi networks and cellular networks in a more intelligent manner than any other eFMC solution. Agito’s patent pending sub-second, automatic handover of calls between WiFi and cellular is transparent to users.
