This press release was orginally distributed by ReleaseWire

Columbus, OH -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/24/2024 -- Business leaders throughout the United States are beginning to notice the long-term ramifications associated with the latest announcement from telecom industry leader, NEC.

NEC's recent telecom announcement that was released at the beginning of May details how they're phasing out their on-site business phone system products, and that they'll withdraw entirely from the on-site Unified Communications industry within a matter of a few years.

This announcement is incredibly important for businesses that currently utilize NEC phone systems, and because NEC has a 16% market share on business phone system products, it's safe to say that NEC's transition will quickly impact a lot of business professionals throughout the rest of 2024 and into 2025.

Businesses using the following NEC phone systems will be particularly impacted by this announcement:

NEC SL2100
NEC SV9100
NEC Aspire
NEC SL1100
NEC SV8100

Businesses that utilize these NEC phone systems will have to begin considering their future telecom options in order to remain ahead of NEC's phase-out transition. This generally opens the door for many tech-savvy telecom advancements that have grown in popularity throughout recent years, including Cloud-based and VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone systems.

Important Dates Regarding NEC's Recent Announcement

Business leaders with NEC phone systems need to consider the following important dates as they prepare for their long-term telecom strategies:

12/31/24: This is NEC's "End of New Deliveries" date, which means that businesses will no longer be able to order their on-site phone system products starting at the beginning of 2025.

3/31/25: This is NEC's "End of Shipment" date, which means that they'll no longer be shipping on-site phone system products that were ordered before New Years Day 2025 starting in April 2025.

3/31/26: NEC will no longer provide any technical or software assistance for their on-site business phone systems starting in April 2026, which can be very risky for any businesses that utilize these products during this time. This end of tech support signifies NEC's full exit from the on-site Unified Communications sector.

What Does NEC's Announcement Mean For American Businesses?

There's no denying how NEC's recent announcement will be startling for thousands of businesses throughout the United States, and this is mainly because any on-site phone system investments with NEC will soon become outdated.

However, it's important to note that this type of widespread technological transition within the telecom industry has essentially been inevitable due to the emergence of Cloud-based and VoIP technologies. Remote working is also a huge trend that has made on-site business phone systems increasingly more obsolete throughout recent years.

Businesses across the United States that utilize on-site NEC phone systems will now have to begin exploring their options in order to maintain a relevant telecom strategy. This will subsequently lead to widespread phone system upgrades throughout the rest of 2024 and into 2025 as business leaders upgrade to more modernized VoIP alternatives.

Out With The Old Business Phone Systems, And In With The New Telecom Technologies

The May 2024 announcement from NEC makes the telecom industry's transition to the Cloud official, and this type of widespread change can be confusing for many business leaders.
