Siemens wins Queen’s Award for Enterprise in United Kingdom


Munich, May 4, 2006, The Siemens Communications Group has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the United Kingdom’s most high-profile award for business, in the innovation category for its HiPath personal communications portal. The portal enables flexible working for more than 110,000 users in HM Government departments.

The HiPath personal communications portal allows users in HM Government to control their availability, take calls or have calls re-routed to the most convenient device, without the user or caller being aware of any difference in operation or functionality. The Queen’s Award for Enterprise was given in recognition of Siemens’ innovative “Life­ Works” concept, which removes the barriers between home and corporate communications to deliver a seamless experience regardless of location, network or device.

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is presented every year to UK businesses that have demonstrated outstanding achievement in one of three categories; international trade, sustainable development and innovation. The awards are given on the recommendation of the Prime Minister, who is assisted by an Advisory Committee that includes representatives of government, industry and commerce, and the trade unions. Siemens Communications is entitled to the award until 2011.

HiPath is the Enterprise Convergence Architecture from Siemens. A comprehensive solution and service portfolio enables companies to further expand their existing voice and data infrastructures, safeguard their existing capital investment, and implement second generation IP (2gIP) applications. 2gIP applications optimize company processes and lead to a sustained improvement in productivity for the corporation. Thanks to the continuous further development of its products and software, Siemens Communications is an innovation leader on the path to a seamless integration of real time communication in the IT world. According to analysts, HiPath has ensured that Siemens is the world’s number one supplier of VoIP connections. With a market share of 38.6%. Siemens aims to further expand this position. Over 70% of the Fortune 500 corporations have selected a HiPath solution. Customers include BMW, DaimlerChrysler, Deutsche Bank, Ford, IBM, Kodak, SAP, BP and Volvo.
