Agito Networks, Inc., the company delivering new technology in enterprise mobility, today announced that its RoamAnywhere Mobility Router was voted by attendees at last month’s Cisco IP Telecommunications User Group (CIPTUG) 2008 Annual Conference as one of the best products showcased driving Unified Communications.
CIPTUG is the official organization for users of Cisco Unified Communications products. Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere, which won as the Best Manufacturing Application, was highlighted in the event’s Application Bake-Off, a competition of products demonstrated on the exhibition show floor held to drive innovative application development for Unified Communications.
“Agito has won more than 15 awards in 2008 so far, and this one is especially gratifying because it is a result of voting from real-world users of technology who saw the capabilities of RoamAnywhere in action at the exhibition,” said Pejman Roshan, Agito Networks vice president of marketing. “While we are also seeing success in a number of vertical markets, RoamAnywhere clearly provides unique benefits for mobile workers in the manufacturing industry. Like in other industries, access to applications and information is critical in manufacturing. Users tell us they are particularly impressed with the high-quality voice and resiliency RoamAnywhere delivers, especially in areas where cellular coverage is problematic.”
At the 2008 Annual Conference, CIPTUG hosted the Application Bake-Off Competition where end users and vendors demonstrated applications that solve unique, complex business problems across a variety of vertical markets. The Application Bake-Off provided an opportunity for attendees to give direct, valuable feedback to developers to help drive innovative application development for Unified Communications, and to provide an avenue for communicating between customers and developers. Participants in the Application Bake-Off Competition included CIPTUG member and non-member IPT vendors, as well as CIPTUG end user members. The program offered a rare opportunity for application development teams worldwide to showcase the latest uses of IP technology, and to be judged by the very people who buy and use the technology.
