RoamAnywhere works with all cellular networks, and natively integrates with enterprises’ existing equipment, including WLAN infrastructure and directory stores.
“We created The Sprout Awards to introduce promising new technologies to the marketplace, and learn why these companies are on track to become the next hot company,” said Robert C. DeMarzo, senior vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel. “All of the startups and technologies that were introduced to us were very impressive. However, the RoamAnywhere Mobility Router was the cream of the crop. We congratulate Agito on a job well done and wish them continued success.”
