Just one week after closing a $2.7 billion acquisition of network vendor, 3Com, HP has announced that its newest 'Cisco-free' data center is using HP/3Com equipment. According to this Network World report, the company has also announced a new 'edge-to-core networking portfolio' based on technology built by 3Com.

Calling the technology 'Cisco-free', HP has announced its newest data center that uses HP/3Com equipment.

"In its own data center, located near Houston, HP has installed 34 3Com routers, 300 HP ProCurve switches, and four TippingPoint intrusion detection and protection devices.

"With 3Com routers, the data center enables more than 2.1 billion packets of data per second.

"'We're Cisco-free in this data center and have a plan to extend this freedom across all of our internal IT data centers next year,' HP vice president Ken Gray said in a press release."
