Hitachi to Reorganize IP Telephony-Related Products Business

Hitachi announced its plans to reorganize the IP telephony-related products business within the Hitachi Group, with the aim of strengthening the products, centered on private branch exchanges (PBXs). Specifically, design, development, and manufacturing functions for Hitachi IP telephony-related products will be transferred to Hitachi Information & Telecommunication Engineering Ltd. by the end of March 2014. Sales functions targeting Hitachi partner companies will be transferred to Hitachi Systems Ltd., while Hitachi Communication Networks Ltd., which sells, installs, and provides maintenance services for IP telephony-related products, will become a subsidiary of Hitachi Systems Ltd. to consolidate sales functions. Hitachi will continue to provide solutions utilizing IP telephony-related products, particularly for large-scale systems.

Hitachi Information & Telecommunication Engineering performs a core role as an engineering operating company in the platform business of Hitachi’s Information & Telecommunication Systems Business. It is mainly engaged in the design and development of servers, storage products, and communications networking devices as well as providing related solutions. Through this business transfer, design and development capabilities will be enhanced by achieving a dynamic development structure through the centralized sharing of development resources for IP telephony-related products.

The transfer of sales functions and consolidation of Hitachi Communication Networks is intended to enhance the system for providing one-stop services related to IP telephony, and at the same time to promote the provision of new services that combine related services of each company.
