3Com Enhances Secure Mobility for SMBs and Enterprises

3Com Corporation is enhancing its secure mobility solutions for small- and medium-sized businesses and enterprises with a new portfolio of robust, easy-to use, business-class wireless products that deliver increased speed, range and capacity along with 3Com’s advanced security, ease-of-use and flexible deployment. These new products, ranging from Power over Ethernet (PoE) access points to routers to adapters, enable business people to work and communicate more efficiently and productively on a wireless network than ever before.

3Com’s new mobility solutions are based on the emerging 802.11n international wireless standard and deliver clear business benefits at a low total cost of ownership to organisations of all types and sizes:

The company list three main benefits for users of their new products: faster transmission speeds, duperior performance and higher capacity:

“3Com is delivering the industry’s broadest portfolio of business-class wireless solutions that meet the secure mobility needs of SMBs and larger enterprises,” said Matthew Walmsley, EMEA Product Marketing. “Business people need to communicate and collaborate from anywhere in the workplace, as well as from remote locations, such as hot spots. Our new products make this easier than ever by providing users with wireless access that delivers the high performance and security that used to be possible only on a wired network. These new products are Wi-Fi certified to interoperate with all existing Wi-Fi-certified products, which protects customers’ capital investments.”

3Com’s new products also deliver the high level of security that is a hallmark of 3Com’s wireless portfolio. They use the latest encryption techniques and support multiple service set identifiers (SSID) and virtual wireless local area networks, which enable the secure separation of different groups of wireless users, such as teachers from students and employees from guests to protect an organisation’s private data.
