HP Buys 3COM

HP will purchase 3Com for approximately $2.7 billion.

“Companies are looking for ways to break free from the business limitations imposed by a networking paradigm that has been dominated by a single vendor,” says Dave Donatelli, executive vp/gm, Enterprise Servers and Networking, HP.

Uh, that's HP-speak for "Companies are buying too much Cisco." So no need to guess who the "HP+3COM" punch is aimed at in their new advertising?

The acquisition of 3Com expands HP’s Ethernet switching offerings, add routing solutions and significantly strengthen the company’s position in China. In addition, the combination will add a large and talented research and development team in China could drive the acceleration of innovations in HP’s networking solutions.
