"SCO is very excited about this relationship with Siemens," said David McCrabb, executive vice president, Worldwide Sales, SCO. "Now, Siemens can further strengthen its position in the worldwide enterprise telecommunications marketplace by providing ultimate reliability and enhanced performance to its customers."
Siemens based its decision on the high reliability, scalability and availability of UnixWare 7. Because PBX machines can serve thousands of users concurrently, they require top-flight levels of reliability and security from the operating systems they use. Siemens determined that the UnixWare 7 platform could best provide these levels for HICOM 300 E's enhanced remote and on-site maintenance features.
Siemens is an industry pioneer in voice messaging and computer telephony integration, and a major player in the worldwide market for enterprise communication systems. The embedded UnixWare 7 System will enable Siemens to further increase the reliability of the HICOM 300 E line through enhanced remote and on-site maintenance features. In addition, Siemens has a source code license for UnixWare 7.
