Today,UET United Electronic Technology AG (ISIN: DE000A0LBKW6), Eschborn, announces the expansion of the product portfolio in the business area SYSTEMS. In addition to the existing product units that consist of products based on hardware with embedded software UET will now also offer hardware-independent software products. Consequently, the investments in software related development to the existing network management system “MetroIntegrator” within the existing R&D spending have been extended. “MetroIntegrator” has been developed by ALBIS Technologies. The product range will gradually be expanded to become a full portfolio targeting application for dynamic, real-time control of telecommunication networks. The competence center for the new unit “Network Control and Network Management” is located in Zurich.
The product portfolio for the expansion and optimization of telecom infrastructure, consisting of hardware and software for copper and fiber, will be more focused on special applications for the migration to Internet based (Rem: ALL-IP) networks and remote powering systems.
In the area of hardware the challenges on sales and costs have and will be increased. This trend already affects the ongoing business in 2015. The portfolio and investment focus with dedicated investments makes it possible to increase revenues and margins sustainably, while simultaneously reducing the dependence on hardware products in highly competitive markets. The first releases of new products are already available on the market. Current projects in Brazil, Mexico, Italy and Austria are well advanced.
Market activities are focused on Europe, Latin America and the Middle East region.
Within the business unit SYSTEMS, that will operate under the new brand albis-elcon, the integration of company ALBIS is on target and as planned. An important milestone has already been reached. The first products were manufactured in Germany since end of October 2015. The positive profit contribution as a result of the production relocation will become full effective in the financial year 2016.
Detailed results of the UET business units for the third quarter of the 2015 fiscal year are shown in the report of the operational financial results for the third quarter. The report will be published by 7 December 2015 respectively.
