BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Communications, Inc. today announced significant enhancements, and a new brand name - OpenScale(TM) - for its professional and managed services portfolio. The company also announced it will invest significant resources into strengthening its existing global service infrastructure, and accelerating its capabilities in delivering software based, Unified Communication (UC) services. This investment plan will introduce a consistent workflow environment across the Siemens networked global service infrastructure, a new global customer portal and new tools for proactive network monitoring.

Siemens' direct, global presence in more than 50 countries, extensive third-party management capabilities and ITIL-based portfolio constitute one of the strongest delivery capabilities among global communication service providers. Siemens expects that the introduction of the OpenScale brand, portfolio architecture and 'pre-packaging' of professional and managed services, together with the service investment program, will further strengthen the company's global service delivery differentiation, as well as enable customers to easily select appropriate services from Siemens.

The company's UC services investment plan features the creation of a new Center of Competence model for the global delivery of unified communication, security and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) consultancy and integration services, together with new facilities to build and pre-test global VoIP and UC solutions prior to final roll-out. The plan will also introduce a global portal for UC real-time service performance monitoring and management, together with a consistent workflow environment across Siemens' global network of Service Centers, Network Operation Centers and Solution Support Centers.

"Siemens is dedicated to delivering Unified Communications solutions and our global services portfolio enables our customers to embrace the latest technology with a high degree of confidence," said Bertrand Humel van der Lee, President of Siemens Managed Services Division. "Our new investment underlines our service commitment to our customers, together with realizing a world class delivery infrastructure for software based communications."

Siemens Global Service Infrastructure works for a variety of customers, regardless of size, geographic reach, level of in-house expertise or differing vendor solutions deployed. The company offers a range of multi-vendor and multi-technology management, integration services and multiple options for financing new technology and deployment options. According to several existing OpenScale Services customers, Siemens' ability to deliver services around the globe, that meet recognized ITIL standards and that cover a variety of technologies, are critical to their businesses.

"Innovative communication must also include global services," said Christian Teickner, Senior Manager, Telecommunications & Mobiles for Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG. "With the Siemens Managed Services contract, we were able to lower the port price of our systems and still achieve a distinct improvement in the quality of our service."

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle.
