IRVING, Texas -- January 7, 2014

NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading provider and integrator of
advanced IT, unified communications (UC), managed services and biometric
solutions, today announced that it achieved the lowest total cost of ownership
(TCO) of vendors serving the IP Telephony market. The significance of this
resonates strongly with companies of varying sizes who are looking for ways to
contain their IT and communication costs both now and in the future.

NEC’s TCO results, published in the Nemertes Research report, compared the
total cost of ownership among top vendors in the marketplace. NEC is
recognized as providing the lowest first-year costs when factoring capital,
implementation, and operational costs. The report also noted that NEC had the
lowest annual maintenance costs.

The report highlights the importance of fully understanding the many factors
that impact the true cost of IP Telephony (IPT) and UC investments. The
Nemertes analysis shows that when considering all factors, costs vary widely
among vendors. With numerous factors to consider, it’s imperative that
organizations make sound decisions based on actual data.

“Enterprises typically purchase based on RFPs that only include capital costs
and technical evaluations,” said Robin Gareiss, Nemertes executive vice
president and founder. “However, it’s critical implementation and operational
costs cannot be ignored in the decision process.”

“NEC has deep experience helping organizations manage costs and plan
effectively for future growth,” said Larry Levenberg, NEC vice president of
sales and marketing. “We are pleased to see that our quality solutions and
support for our customers is recognized in this report.”

NEC offers a broad range of voice over IP and unified communications solutions
- small to very large systems - that effectively support enterprise and SMB
customers whose requirements span from premises-based solutions to cloud-based
Unified Communications as a Service, to custom hybrid private cloud
communications solutions.
