Agito Networks, Inc., the company delivering innovative solutions in enterprise mobility, today announced that it was honored in the Everything Channel Tech Innovator Awards program for its Agito RoamAnywhere Mobility Router v3.0. Everything Channel’s Tech Innovator Awards celebrate technology vendors that have introduced new solutions that drive advances throughout the technology channel.
Everything Channel’s Test Center reviewed hundreds of applications for the 2009 Everything Channel Tech Innovator Awards, a program by which channel partners assess the technical innovation and development efforts of vendors. Agito Networks was selected as a runner-up in the Wireless Networking awards category.
Agito’s award-winning RoamAnywhere Mobility Router is the Channel’s most powerful mobile Unified Communications product, purpose built for channel customers to help them mobilize enterprise voice and UC applications to increase mobile worker productivity while reducing costs. It uniquely fuses WiFi, cellular and Unified Communications with location information, improving the accessibility and responsiveness of mobile workers, while drastically reducing mobile costs. RoamAnywhere extends UC, PBX and deskphone features to mobile phones, while providing industry-leading handover between WiFi and cellular networks to reduce mobile costs and improve in-building coverage. RoamAnywhere uniquely delivers an FMC product with high availability, redundancy, security, enterprise scalability, and the industry’s broadest IP-PBX and mobile handset support, including VoIP support for the Research In Motion (RIM®) BlackBerry® smartphone. RoamAnywhere works with all cellular networks, and natively integrates with channel customers’ existing equipment, including WLAN infrastructure and directory stores.

DeMarzo, senior vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel. “As a result of the steady, hard and often unheralded work in the R&D labs throughout the industry, technology, cultural and business leadership happens every day.
