Agito, Fixed-mobile convergence, Google, Google Voice
I gave a nod to Agito when I blogged about Google Voice on BlackBerry, noting that the big G was stepping into the former’s fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) turf with the launch of the BlackBerry and Android apps for Google Voice, which integrates one-number dialing across multiple lines so that, for example, a telecommuter can give one number and be reached whether he’s at the office, at home, in a hotel, or on the beach with his cell phone.
Agito’s obviously not a company to rest on its laurels, as Christian Gilby, director of product marketing for Agito, quickly put together a video showing the company’s software routing a Google Voice call over a Wi-Fi network:

Not shabby at all, and while the FMC and mobile unified communications fields are certainly going to get much, much more crowded over the next few years, Agito’s demonstrated they have a large head start with the technology. It’ll be interesting to see if they can keep their lead.
