Agito Networks Wins Finalist Honor for Award Recognizing the Most Promising

Companies Driving the Future of Technology

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Agito Networks, Inc.(TM), the award-winning company delivering new technology in enterprise mobility, today announced that it has been named a finalist for the Red Herring 100 Award, an award recognizing the most innovative private technology companies based in North America.

The Red Herring editorial board diligently surveyed the entrepreneurial scene throughout the North American region and identified the top 200 finalists out of more than 800 closely evaluated companies that are leading the next wave of innovation. Agito Networks has been recognized by Red Herring due to its innovative RoamAnywhere(TM) Mobility Router, which uniquely fuses 802.11 wireless LANs (WLANs), enterprise IP telephony, the carrier cellular network and location technology, improving mobile worker accessibility and responsiveness to increase mobile worker productivity (http://www.agitonetworks.com/products/).

"We can see the exciting evolution of the technology sector reflected in the quality and variety of exceptional companies that we had to choose from in putting our list together," said Joel Dreyfuss, editor-in-chief of Red Herring. "It was tough to choose just 200 finalists from such a large list of excellent contenders, and we are very happy with the quality of the companies we selected as finalists."

"Red Herring is a leading publication for business decision makers and technology investors, and we are pleased to receive this honor from them," said Rob Markovich, Agito Networks Chief Executive Officer. "This recognition is one of a growing list of honors Agito Networks has received in 2008. Improving mobile worker productivity and reducing cellular expenses are clear pain points for enterprises, and Agito is differentiated by its unique WiFi-integrated, location-aware approach to enterprise mobility, and its ability to scale and meet the complex mobile convergence needs of medium and large enterprises."

Agito's innovative, patent-pending location-aware technology allows enterprises to mobilize voice by taking full advantage of their 802.11 WLAN deployments as a low-cost alternative to cellular networks for in-building enterprise mobility. Leveraging voice over WLAN (VoWLAN) and enterprise grade dual mode (cellular and WiFi) mobile phones enables enterprises to reduce cellular expenses by as much as 60 percent, and avoid deploying costly, carrier-specific equipment to address poor cellular coverage. To ensure a seamless user experience, the RoamAnywhere Mobility Router provides the industry's fastest <100ms, automatic handover between the enterprise WLAN networks and any carrier cellular network.

The 100 winning companies will be announced at the Red Herring North America event. The CEOs of the winning startups will present their innovative ideas and technologies to an audience of leading entrepreneurs, financiers, and corporate strategists at the event in San Jose, Calif., on May 12-14 at the Fairmont Hotel. This year's Red Herring 100 North America event marks the 11th anniversary of the Red Herring 100 Awards. In celebration, the event will feature keynote addresses from legendary VC investors and CEOs of leading Internet, information, and communications companies.

The RoamAnywhere Mobility Router is unlike any enterprise mobility solution seen to date. The patent-pending, RF-based location aware technology ensures that in-building calls stay on the enterprise WLAN (using VoWLAN), to reduce cellular expenses and provide low-cost in-building coverage to eliminate dropped or poor quality calls. As part of an enterprise's mobile Unified Communications strategy, RoamAnywhere increases accessibility and productivity of today's workforce by delivering voice applications to mobile devices. Agito's patent pending sub-second, automatic handover of calls between WiFi and cellular is transparent to users. Agito's solution gives IT administrators the confidence to roll out VoWLAN across their enterprise, knowing the user experience will be as good as their wired phones, and that they can significantly reduce cellular expenses.
