German term or phrase: OEM-Produkt
Implementierung der Software in xxx System als OEM-Produkt(ohne eigene Marke).

I thought OEM stood for Orignal Equipment Manufacturer.But as you can see, the author wrote "ohne eigene Marke".Is there an abbreviation in Engl. for this expression? TIA:))

OEM product
Explanation:
It seems to me that the German version 'Ohne eigene...' is simply an alternative way of using the same initials --- after all, it means basically the same thing: 'unbranded building-block equipment' etc.

OEM product/device


Explanation:
Comes from the expression Original Equipment Manufacturer. Commonly used if for example Compaq ships a PC with a modem made by another manufacturer. The modem would be an OEM product.
