RESTON, Va., Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As further evidence of its continued commercial momentum and technology innovation, Siemens Enterprise Communications (@SiemensEnt) today announced that it has been named by Gartner, Inc. as a Leader in the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Corporate Telephony.

Siemens Enterprise Communications is positioned as a Leader based on the company's completeness of vision and ability to execute. OpenScape, Siemens Enterprise Communications' software platform providing enterprise voice communications and unified communications,  provides a rich set of enterprise voice features for enterprises of all sizes and offers the highest levels of reliability, scalability, security, and multiple deployment options.

"Leadership in corporate telephony has been the historical foundation of Siemens Enterprise Communications' strength.  Going forward, voice communications will continue to serve as a pillar of our innovation strategy and of our commitment to deliver leading-edge communications solutions to our customers," said Chris Hummel (@Hummel_Chris), Chief Commercial Officer, Siemens Enterprise Communications. "We believe our position in the leader's quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for both Corporate Telephony and Unified Communications reinforces the power of our OpenScape portfolio to provide the easiest path to unified communications."      

For the Magic Quadrant for Corporate Telephony, Gartner analysts evaluate vendors based in part on "breadth, quality and overall maturity of their applications, processes, tools and procedures that enhance individual, group and enterprise communications."  According to Gartner, the Leaders quadrant includes "high-viability vendors with broad portfolios, significant market shares, broad geographic coverage, a clear vision of how telephony needs will evolve and a proven track record of delivering telephony solutions. They are well-positioned with their current product portfolio and likely to continue delivering leading products. Leaders do not necessarily offer a best-of-breed solution for every customer requirement. However, overall, their products are strong and often have some exceptional capabilities. Additionally, these vendors provide solutions that present relatively low risk."
