November 14, 2008
Enterprise mobility solution provider, Agito Networks announced that the company’s recently released RoamAnywhere Mobility Router version 2.0 is compatible with key Internet Protocol (IP) Private Branch eXchange (PBX) solutions from Avaya, a company that specializes in communication systems, applications, and services.
The RoamAnywhere Mobility Router is an innovative enterprise fixed-mobile convergence (eFMC) platform which helps enterprises to extend voice and Unified Communications (UC) to their cell phones. RoamAnywhere fuses WiFi, cellular, IP telephony and location-awareness technology. It supports all cellular carriers, enterprise PBXs and Wireless LANs and allows enterprises to mobilize voice and data applications.
"As a Gold-level member of the Avaya DevConnect program, Agito has been working closely with Avaya since before the company launched to deliver compliance-tested Unified Communications solutions to joint customers," said Mark Cashman, vice president of business development at Agito Networks.
Cashman also mentioned that similar to the previous release of RoamAnywhere, this new version will also allow its customers to benefit from Avaya's mid-call control features which will be delivered to users' handsets via RoamAnywhere v2.0.
According to Cashman, this mobility solution will help the users to be more accessible and productive, at the same time reduce enterprise telecommunications costs as well.
Agito Networks is a Gold member of the Avaya DevConnect program, an initiative which allows its members to create the new generation of intelligent communications solutions. The membership allows Agito Networks to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab.
Verified by Avaya, the new application from Agito Networks is now in compliance with Avaya's series of Media Servers, which includes the S8300 Server with Avaya Communication Manager 5.1, SIP Enabled Services 5.1, IA770 Intuity (5.0), Modular Messaging Server (4.0).
Additionally, the application is compatible with Avaya’s entire series of desk phones, including the 9600 Series IP Telephones (H.323 1.5) (SIP 2.0.3), and 2400 Series Digital Phone (5.0).
"By participating in Avaya's compliance testing program and committing to open standards, development partners like Agito Networks are helping businesses get more out of their network investment," said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations and technical alliances, Avaya.
"Our customers are able to easily communications-enable critical business processes, change the way they work, and uncover new value that can help them build their bottom line," added Rossman.
