Agito Networks, Inc., the company delivering innovative solutions in enterprise mobility, today announced that customer Hertford Regional College (HRC) has been selected to present at the Gartner Wireless, Networking & Communications Summit being held in San Diego from April 19 – 21.
Dr. Daniel Hidlebaugh, HRC Director of Network Services, will present an end-user case study session on improving indoor coverage and extending mobile Unified Communications to mobile workers at 5:30 pm on April 19. Selection of the speakers for the event was determined by Gartner analysts.
Since the early 1990s when it formed, HRC has grown in size, currently employing 900 staff and serving more than 12,000 full- and part-time students. After completing a $140 million construction project to update its facilities, including a 4-story building that covers half of a city block, HRC learned the new building materials do not allow cellular coverage indoors. Since mobile phone accessibility is critical to the college’s staff, HRC turned to Agito’s RoamAnywhere Mobility Router to not only provide indoor mobile coverage, but also cut the college’s telecommunications expenses in half by moving calls off cellular and onto the college’s free WiFi network.
“Now we can’t do without our Agito system, after one day it became a must have,” Hidlebaugh said. “Coverage was a concern before, but now we can reach each other at all times. This is exactly what we were looking for, and accessibility is huge for us. Organizations depend on their infrastructure to deliver for them, and with Agito everyone can be reached quickly. Everyone is benefiting from this, and we no longer have to spend over an hour trying to find someone.”
Agito Networks’ RoamAnywhere Mobility Router extends UC, PBX and deskphone features to mobile phones, while providing industry-leading handover between WiFi, 3G and cellular networks. RoamAnywhere uniquely delivers a mobile UC product with high availability, redundancy, security, enterprise scalability, and the industry’s broadest IP-PBX and mobile handset support, including VoIP support for the Apple® iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad and Research In Motion (RIM®) BlackBerry® smartphones.
