Agito Networks, Inc., the company delivering new technology in enterprise mobility, today announced that the next-generation version of its RoamAnywhere Mobility Router was distinguished as one of nine “Hot On-the-Go Solutions” at Interop New York/Mobile Business Expo (MBX) 2008 by CRN magazine. CRN is the publication providing news analysis and perspective to the solution provider community.
Selected by CRN from the more than 200 event exhibitors, Agito Networks’ latest release of its RoamAnywhere Mobility Router was making its first public debut at the exposition, which attracted more than 8,000 attendees.
According to CRN, “Agito Networks stormed Interop and the Mobile Business Expo with the next release of its RoamAnywhere Mobility Router, an enterprise FMC (fixed mobile convergence) solution designed to boost worker productivity while reducing cellular costs. The new RoamAnywhere packs in a host of industry firsts, including Secure Remote Voice for secure VoWLAN, Dual Persona for converged business and personal contacts and calling in one device, Dynamic Least Cost Routing, and the broadest PBX and Symbian/Windows Mobile handset support available.”
Agito Networks sells its product strictly through a growing channel partner program.
RoamAnywhere 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 cellular costs. Agito Networks uniquely fuses Wi-Fi, cellular, IP telephony, and location information, improving the accessibility and responsiveness of mobile workers, while drastically reducing mobile costs. RoamAnywhere uses the industry’s most complete set of proactive, location- and policy-based metrics, in addition to simplistic reactive metrics, to deliver fast and automatic, sub-100ms handover of mobile voice between WLAN and cellular networks. Other solutions rely solely on reactive, “call-in-distress” metrics, such as diminishing signal strength and degrading voice quality, waiting for the call to degrade before attempting a handover. RoamAnywhere adds proactive metrics, including location- and policy-based metrics, such as handset battery levels and network costs, into its handover decisions, delivering the best mobile voice experience for users.
“Agito’s channel program is growing, and it’s fitting to be recognized by CRN, the magazine that provides resellers with important information they need to help increase their sales,” said Jeff Dolce, Agito Networks vice president of sales. “RoamAnywhere is proving popular for partners because channel customers require solutions that are easy to build into the infrastructure they already have, which is a differentiator for the Agito solution. We provide good margins and revenue opportunities for partners, and allow them to extend their bills of materials with the WLAN and UC products they offer.”
CRN provides solution providers and technology integrators with the crucial information and analysis they need to drive their company’s sales. As an advocate for and voice of the channel, solution providers turn to CRN first for immediate information. With 25 years of experience, CRN is the most trusted source for 117,000 channel professionals.
