Agito Networks' award-winning RoamAnywhere Mobility Router enables enterprises of all sizes to drastically reduce their mobile expenses with dynamic least cost routing and use of VoIP over WLAN. The Agito solution extends IP Telephony and Unified Communications capabilities to mobile phones, providing mobile workers with their deskphone and desktop UC capabilities anywhere, ensuring greater productivity and enabling collaboration inside and outside the office. The Agito solution accomplishes this by uniquely fusing WiFi, mobile carrier networks, IP telephony, and location information, operating on any and all mobile carrier networks, and natively integrating with enterprises' existing equipment, including WLAN infrastructure and directory stores (http://www.agitonetworks.com/products). In addition, RoamAnywhere provides industry-leading <100 ms, automatic handover between WiFi and the mobile network to reduce mobile costs and improve in-building coverage. Purpose-built for the enterprise, RoamAnywhere uniquely offers high availability, redundancy, security, enterprise scalability, and the industry's broadest mobile handset and IP-PBX support.
Agito offers the broadest handset and PBX support of any solution in the space, including European support for Alcatel and Shortel PBXs in addition to existing support for Cisco, Avaya, Microsoft, Nortel and Asterisk IP-PBXs. It has qualified support for more than 35 different types of handsets from Nokia and those running Windows Mobile 6 Standard and Professional operating systems. Unlike other eFMC solutions that require enterprises to tamper with their enterprise route plans and desk phones during deployment, Agito, with its line-side capabilities, integrates seamlessly into existing customer networks, requiring no changes to the ecosystem.
"In a lot of enterprises, people are using their mobile phone as their primary phone, instead of their deskphone," said
RoamAnywhere offers European customers Dynamic Least Cost Routing, which uses patent-pending algorithms to determine how best to route mobile calls, enterprise calls and country-to-country calls, resulting in significant savings. For global workforces, RoamAnywhere intelligently re-directs international calls through the enterprise PBX with no user involvement, reducing international charges by a factor of 10 or more in most cases. For in-building "corridor warriors" and telecommuters, the Mobility Router intelligently routes business calls through high-quality home, hotspot or enterprise Wi-Fi networks, off-loading mobile minutes from cellular to the WLAN.
Among other features, Agito's RoamAnywhere introduces into Europe Secure Remote Voice, a first-of-its-kind capability that addresses the challenges of poor in-building mobile coverage outside the enterprise by delivering a secure voice over WLAN (VoWLAN) connection from Wi-Fi networks in homes, hotels and public hotspots. While other solutions send VoIP traffic unencrypted over the Internet, the RoamAnywhere client uses an application-layer SSL connection to secure VoWLAN from non-enterprise networks. Users can now realize the cost savings for international roaming as well as enhanced voice quality that VoWLAN provides, in addition to the increased responsiveness of having enterprise PBX connectivity, in a simple-to-use, secure solution. Secure Remote Voice supports all of Agito's industry-leading capabilities remotely, including sub-100ms secure handover between Wi-Fi and mobile carrier networks, and access to corporate directories - all without a mobile data plan, which other solutions require.
"Agito is the most scalable and redundant solution that I've seen on the market," said Mr. Claeys. "It uses proactive handover techniques while most other solutions are only reactive, and the local routing capabilities are very important for companies looking to reduce cellular charges. It has a very beautiful product interface which is easy to configure, easy to use, and provides a lot of monitoring capabilities. In addition to the unique Secure Remote Voice functionality, what impresses me the most about Agito is that the system was easy to setup and all IP-PBX features were working in a minute."
"Agito Networks has garnered its share of industry accolades and customer traction in the U.S., and I'm seeing significant interest from European end users and channel partners alike," said Mr. Donovan. "Mobile operators have yet to solve their issues with FMC or deliver enterprise mobility to their customers, paving the way for Agito. I'm excited to join the company and benefit from the clear greenfield opportunities here in
