NEC and Philips Form New Communications Company


NEC and Philips have completed the transaction regarding their joint venture in enterprise communications as announced in November 2005.

With NEC holding 60% and Philips holding 40% of shares, the new company, NEC Philips Unified Solutions, has commenced operation as per April 3rd.

At a special Press briefing held on Wednesday at the company?s headquarters in Hilversum, The Netherlands, Ad Ketelaars, CEO of NEC Philips Unified Solutions, mapped out the company?s ambitions.

NEC?s strong technology base and market position in Asia Pacific and North America and Philips? strong market presence in EMEA (Europe, Middle-East and Africa) is expected to provide competitive advantages and will enable NEC Philips Unified Solutions to extend market reach and its share of the communications market.

The joint venture is part of NEC?s global strategy to achieve over 10% share of the enterprise communications market worldwide. To this end, NEC is investing in the development of platforms and applications that can be sold on a global scale, as well as investing further in its routes to market.

Focussing on the EMEA market, NEC Philips Unified Solutions addresses the needs of organisations of all types and sizes, with the following spearheads:

A dedicated division addressing the SMB (Small & Medium Businesses) channel is in place to further expand the existing network of reselling partners.

Enterprises will benefit from the combined R&D activities and resulting portfolio of platforms and applications. This results in the widest possible choice for IP-based communications, incorporating latest voice and data technologies available to the modern telecom world.

Recognising the shift towards integrated solutions and services, a dedicated Solutions division has been established, serving clients on a global scale with integrated applications such as those around UNIVERGE. In addition to system integration and around-the-clock (managed) services, the offered range includes solutions like Microsoft?s LCS (Live Communications Server), available thanks to a recently announced partnership with Microsoft.
