3Com is a leading global provider of enterprise and small-business networking solutions that help organizations achieve their business and networking objectives. The company has had a major impact on computer networking since the creation of Ethernet in the 1970s. 3Com’s mission is to provide customers worldwide with high-quality, low-cost networking infrastructure solutions that enable the convergence of applications and emerging technologies into the network. 


In today’s enterprises, IT departments are challenged to consolidate their resources to enhance return on investment and reduce system management and administrative expenses to drive down the total cost of ownership. To achieve these business goals, they must have the right tools and the flexibility provided by standards-based, interoperable systems, rather than the rigid limitations of proprietary technology. That’s why more networking professionals are turning to 3Com’s innovative, intelligent and cost-effective networking solutions.
