Enterprise FMC vendor, Agito, has hired Amit Chawla as new CEO. Amit was previously with Veraz. I am not sure if he co-founded ipVerse, one of the original constituent elements in Veraz, but he was certainly the person that orchestrated much of the transition from ipVerse to Nexverse to Veraz. When Veraz was formed, the other constituent element came over from ECI.
ECI contributed the media gateway part of the business (and the DCME stuff too). A lot of those arrangements were made by Amit. Anyway, unless Agito has hired Amit to engineer a favourable exit, the selection raises a couple of questions about Agito strategy. Amit comes from a carrier background and Agito sells to enterprises (sometimes through OEM partnerships with the likes of Avaya). Maybe Agito is looking to sell to carriers after all. FMC vendors have had a tough time deciding who to sell to. Do they sell direct to enterprises (DiVitas) or sell via PBX partners (Firsthand/Counterpath) to enterprises, or sell via carriers to enterprises (OnRelay), or try to sell to both enterprises and carriers (Tango Networks).
Of course there are some more combinations possible there. Having said that, I believe in FMC somewhat. Perhaps we are in the early stages of the FMC and something more simpler and robust needs to evolve to bridge the future fiber and 4g networks seamlessly.
