Based on our experience and extensive testing
of 3Com’s products, we are planning to
undertake a global rollout within HP as soon as
possible after the completion of the acquisition.”

Industry reaction

H

P will now combine its own ProCurve networking products with
3Com's offerings, significantly boosting its reach in corporate data
centers. With many firms rethinking their IT strategies as the economy
emerges from the recession,
HP is clearly laying the foundations for the
future
.

Specifically, the deal expands the tech bellwether's Ethernet
switch and routing products, as well as its presence in China.

And HP took a big step tonight in fighting back, announcing a nearly $3
billion play for 3Com, in HP's fourth largest acquisition ever. The $7.90 a
share is a nice, 40 percent premium to 3Com's trading price yesterday.
It
positions HP as a key, end

to
-
end supplier for datacenter customers, and
is a huge step forward in staunching the increasing threat from Cisco.

Together, they are clearly number two in the market,” said Steve
Schuchart
, an analyst with Current Analysis. “We’re seeing a fairly large
consolidation in the market.

”This puts HP in a much better position
against Cisco,”
Schuchart

said. “Overall, this is going to be a big
opportunity.”
