INTRODUCTION

A company geared for success and profitable growth needs foundation of values, expertise and experience that encompasses both its history and the people who make it what it is: the company’s employees, shareholders and customers. At Siemens, sustainability – the future orientation that was fostered by our company’s founding family back in the nineteenth century and continues to benefit our customers, our shareholders and society today – is an integral part of our foundation. This foundation is the basis for the company strategy that’s now enabling more than 400,000 Siemens employees around the world to channel their knowledge and skills into providing answers to the challenges of our time. In this year’s Annual Report, we’d like to present three projects that showcase our pioneering role in addressing these challenges. Underscoring our focus on innovation- and technologydriven growth markets, we first take a look at a solar thermal power plant in Lebrija, Spain. With a capacity of 50 megawatts, this trailblazing facility will soon be supplying carbon-free power to some 50,000 households. Shanghai is our next stop. Join us in the Chinese megacity for a tour of the ultra-modern plant where we manufacture SOMATOM Spirit CT scanners. Then visit one of our customers to see how these scanners are helping improve healthcare in rural areas – proof of the importance we attach to cultivating a local presence worldwide and making technological advances available to people all around the globe. Finally, we’d like to take you for a spin in a state-of-the-art electric car. In pushing electric mobility, we’re going beyond vehicles whose advanced drives are launching a new era in transportation. We’re also building smart grids that permit the low-loss, long-distance transmission of green electricity to urban areas and developing innovative concepts for batteries that help offset power supply fluctuations by serving as mobile power storage units. These projects highlight just a few of the innovations spawned by the ideas and knowhow of our employees and realized by the strength of our company. And it’s this strength – what we call the power of Siemens – that’s enabling us to outpace our competitors by breaking new ground as modern-day pioneers and setting milestones for progress and development in societies worldwide.

In the post-war Siemens Brothers was absorbed first into AEI (about 1960) and then into GEC Ltd (in 1968) and the Siemens name disappeared from the UK telecomms scene. The British company became Siemens Brothers Ltd and whilst the German company did re-establish operations in Britain after the war. Up to the First World War the two companies collaborated closely but the hostilities caused a total separation of the two firms. an arrangement remained between the wars for mutual design assistance for telecommunications technology. they confined their operations in Britain to making and selling heavycurrent devices. more innovative and cheaper. In 1989 the German Siemens company decided it wanted to stake a major claim on the UK telecomms market and bought 40 per cent of GPT. still in Luton. . whilst Norton's main activity was expoerting British telecomms equipment to Africa). The German company’s re-entry into the UK market in the 1980s was achieved through the purchase of a small Luton-based company called Norton Telecom (in a previous incarnation the firm made television games under the name Sportel. and from this date onwards the new team started to ‘push’ German-made products far harder than British GPT equipment.HISTORY The story of telecoms manufacturing by Siemens is one that can be condensed only with difficulty. Norton Telecom exploited the liberalisation of the UK customer premises equipment market and began to import PABXs from Germany. German-sourced telecomms equipment was still imported into Britain but by agents. However. started some years earlier by taking over Norton Telecom. Two brothers of the Siemens family started their electrical business in the mid19th century. establishing factories in Berlin (Germany) and Woolwich (Britain). New premises were bought. not by either Siemens Company. This was ill-advised because in most cases the British equipment was better-specified. was merged with GPT Communication Systems Ltd (originally an ATE subsidiary). One of the consequences of this was that their own private systems business. but here goes….

but spent almost every free moment performing physics experiments in his laboratory. 1877. . Siemens produced Germany's first instruments. The firm. he promoted further development of the new technology. and the company Siemens & Halske were commissioned to produce telephones based on Bell´s original. when GEC bought out the Siemens share. The German capital's first telephone link .was inaugurated on October 26. A history that now stretches back 125 years began with the vision of a Scottish teacher of the deaf and dumb: He dreamed of producing a device that would enable people to communicate across great distances. With admirable commitment. for his telephone.A history of the telephone There is scarcely another invention that has changed people's lives as radically as the telephone. and played a decisive role in the development of the telephone network. had already made a name for itself with some spectacular telegraph construction projects. who in 1870. This dreamer with a practical bent was Alexander Graham Bell. On February 14. From the first lines to communications that span the world—Siemens has been at the forefront from day one. But the system needed the devices that would permit users to telephone each other.a story of communications.no less than two kilometers in length . allowing Siemens to sell its own products unfettered by the GEC people. and is now one of the pioneers of UMTS technology. and inventions in the field of electrical engineering.465. Berlin's Postmaster General Heinrich Stephan learned of the invention with delight. 1876 his dream became reality. founded in 1847. starring Siemens Siemens and telephony— a story of intertwined fortunes stretching back 125 years. Siemens now acknowledges its UK tradition dating back to 1858 and now sponsors the old (English) Siemens Engineering Society. Siemens was crucially involved in the introduction of ISDN. emigrated from Scotland to America. Siemens in Germany 125 years of the telephone .This awkward marriage between GEC and Siemens eventually came to an end. and he filed a patent application under the number 174. From 1876 to 2001. where he founded a private school for vocal physiology.

The connections were highly sensitive to interference. with 200 telephones emerging from their manufacturing shop every day from November 1877. The frequent consequence was impenetrable confusion. The first equipment had its teething-troubles. The mechanization of switching was a major advance: First a hundred. These switchboards owed their name to the technology employed: Calls were signaled to the operators by the dropping of numbered flaps. A double copper line led from each subscriber to a central exchange. . as well as the actual telephone. while the vital "ring" turned out to be problematical. The company lived up to its reputation as communications technology pioneer. who would you like to speak to?" By the end of the 19th century Siemens also developed the necessary network of lines. where nimble-fingered operators connected the lines via a so-called "drop switchboard". Siemens & Halske were early proponents of mass-production techniques.200 telephones a day Werner Siemens recognized the vast potential of telecommunications.without the intervention of an operator. They started with the introduction of the hand receiver. Connections from one switchboard to another were announced in advance by calling across the room. of course. drawing the necessary power from a battery which at the same time supplied the current for the voice signal. They set great store by ergonomics. "Hallo. They invested in the further development of the technology from day one. With the rapidly growing number of connections came increased problems. followed later on by the scoop-shaped receiver which typified the design for many years. the corresponding flap had to be flipped upwards again by hand. intended to make using the telephone more convenient. The "muscle-powered" hand crank was much used as an alternative here. and later several thousand calls could be switched at the same time . which were retained in place by an electromagnet when not in use. with wrong numbers and subscribers left waiting for connections that were never made. exchange here. the more switchboards were set up in the exchanges. If a subscriber wished to end the call. An alarm-clock took on this function. The more people who wished to make calls. The initial capacity of the drop switchboards was limited to 50 lines.

or "Integrated Services Digital Network" is the magic word here. The mechanical selectors were replaced by the magnetic coupling fields. The system was developed and manufactured by Siemens. The result was that the transmission capacities of lines and exchanges increased by many orders of magnitude. enabling the parallel transmission of voice and data traffic. EWSD. From 1972. Digitization brings a quantum leap A quantum leap for telephony came at the end of the 70s. in the form of a copy identical to the original. all German local networks used fully automatic operation.the transmission of entire documents. Siemens developed various dial systems. The technical highlights included the introduction of the noble metal uniselector motor switch in 1954 and the electronically controlled system with magnetic coupling fields in 1955. 1969 saw the world's first satellite-based telephone network go into service. The telephone network grows The automation of the German telephone network spurred on the relentless march of the telephone. In 1980.invented by the American Almon Strowger in 1889. Upper Bavaria. which also formed the speech path network.One of the first systems of this kind was made possible by the "two-motion selector". with digitization. Later came the "group selector". ISDN. 1909 saw Siemens playing the leading role in setting up the first fully automated exchange in a major European city. in Munich's Schwabing district. in the small town of Weilheim. Satellite telephony Alongside terrestrial advances. Siemens was also behind the world's first fully-automatic longdistance exchange. November 1962 saw the first electronically controlled exchange commence operations with the Deutsche Bundespost in Munich. In 1923. the telephone companies launched the first telecommunications satellites into earth orbit in 1960. This represented a huge advance: A Strowger selector was able to handle 100 calls automatically. New services became possible. In later years. thanks to the conversion of analog signals into digital codes. Siemens started series production of the first digital computer-aided dialing system. which boosted performance once more by several orders of magnitude. . Digitization also paved the way for the fax .

Now. Germany was already one of the technological leaders in the analog A-. the last five years have seen a boom in mobile radio that hardly any of the experts had foreseen. These included number memories. hands-free equipment and more sensitive microphones. Via the internet. The old copper cables are increasingly being replaced by the much more efficient optical fiber. UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems) will usher in the era of third-generation mobile radio. more than 100 million people right across the world make phone calls via the D. Onto the Net via the phone The number-one topic of the new millennium is the internet . cellphones provide access to WAP services .The integration of satellites and terrestrial systems enabled overseas calls that were as quick and convenient as those made within a continent's boundaries. The mobile radio boom More or less at the same time as the spread of the internet. but is becoming a fashion item and an element of interior design. Advances in other areas of technology expanded the range of functions offered by handsets. Siemens developed the first cordless telephones. . With increasing prosperity. Siemens ranks as a world pioneer. displays. Siemens played a crucial role in the development of the GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) digital standard at the beginning of the 90s. Worldwide data highways are turning the world into a global village. Here too. and alongside this. B. design became ever more important. Cordless telephones bring freedom of movement In the 80s.and E-networks.and C-networks.the driving force behind the global information society. the telephone and the computer enable multimedia telecommunications. developing optoelectronic switching technology. The telephone is no longer just a tool. researchers and engineers are working hard in their laboratories.mobile online services. Today.

it’s not always possible to apply radio network QoS differentiation methods to avoid congestion. In this case. provide very good support for QoE and efficiency management. based on traffic statistics. However. As traffic volumes grow. application differentiation is one way to use the infrastructure efficiently while safeguarding QoS and the user experience. . even during peak hours. and in some cases also advanced content optimization such as e. bearer separation and Application Aware RAN. Also the network planning and optimization can benefit from the understanding of the observed performance of the key applications in the radio and transport network. Lower priority flows will receive a best-effort service. using typically policing and shaping the bitrates of the individual applications. All the solutions described aim to prioritize traffic so that higher-priority flows get the QoS they need. video. webpage and image compression. for instance in multivendor environments. The requirements of the different application types can be met in the radio and transport interface and the utilization of the most critical network resources can be maximized. DPI is applied to identify applications and to ensure that the type of service influences any decision process.In general the radio network QoS differentiation methods.CONCLUSION The success of MBB and the growth in data traffic requires operators to focus on profitability and the user experience. The traffic management methods in the core are used to reduce the user data load.g. the recommendation is to perform traffic management in the core. Solutions require end-toend mechanisms spanning network elements from the gateway to the mobile device.
