Agito Networks, Inc., the company delivering innovative solutions in enterprise mobility, today announced that it was named to the first annual listing of the InformationWeek Startup 50, revealed earlier this week in InformationWeek magazine and on InformationWeek.com.
The InformationWeek Startup 50 is a list of the top 50 business technology startups selected by InformationWeek readers and editors. Companies were selected in a three-step process that involved nomination, online voting, and editorial vetting. The technologies and the companies were evaluated on the following criteria:
• Innovation and their ability to inject new ways of doing things into business processes;
• Value, which is reflected in lower costs, increased sales, higher productivity, or improved customer loyalty; and
• Enterprise-readiness, meaning that a product or service scales and can be deployed and managed as necessary by IT professionals.
Agito Networks delivers 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. Its RoamAnywhere Mobility Router uniquely fuses WiFi, cellular, IP telephony, and Unified Communications with location information, improving the accessibility and responsiveness of mobile workers, while drastically reducing mobile costs. RoamAnywhere mobilizes voice and Unified Communications for enterprises of all sizes, extending PBX, deskphone features, and UC applications to mobile phones.

It works with all cellular networks, and natively integrates with enterprises’ existing equipment, including WLAN infrastructure and directory stores.
“It was difficult to limit ourselves to 50 startups because there’s a lot of exciting companies out there,” said Andrew Conry-Murray, Business Editor, InformationWeek. “That said, we believe the InformationWeek Startup 50 have innovative solutions to critical business problems and are worthy of enterprise consideration.”
“As the only fixed mobile convergence company included in InformationWeek’s distinguished list, Agito Networks continues to be recognized and grow in the industry, due to its ability to deliver enterprise value,” said Pejman Roshan, Agito Networks Chief Marketing Officer. “No other FMC platform can touch Agito’s high availability, security, handset and PBX support, as well as its context-aware mobile UC functionality. It’s nice to see that the direction we are taking the company is being supported through significant industry validation, including this award from InformationWeek.”
