<p>3Com Broadens Choices for Customers to Deploy High-Speed Wireless With 3Com Wireless LAN Access Point 7250, Complementing 3Com’s Dual-mode and Tri-mode Wireless Products</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia, 12 May, 2004 – 3Com Corporation (Nasdaq: COMS) has delivered the new 3Com® Wireless LAN Access Point 7250 for enterprise customers to get advanced enterprise security and management features in a high-speed, cost-effective wireless product. The Wireless LAN Access Point 7250 has a single 802.11-standard 11g radio design, delivering the high-speed wireless that can be easily integrated into a standards-based network environment.</p>
<p>“3Com continues to invest in wireless LAN technology, and we continue to strive to deliver products that offer full standards support, upgradeability, reliable performance, manageability, Power over Ethernet flexibility and a high level of security,” said James Stewart, Network Consultant, 3Com Australia. “For larger customers who want tri-mode 11a/b/g wireless solutions, we have a compelling offering with the 3Com Access Points 8750 and 8250. But for customers who want lower cost 11g wireless equipment to enable high-speed wireless, the new Access Point 7250 should be the right fit.”</p>
<p>The new access point complements 3Com’s enterprise wireless offerings, which include dual-mode and tri-mode (11a/b/g) access points, providing flexible and affordable choices for enterprise customers to fulfill their business objectives and meet their network configuration and security requirements. 3Com also offers wireless PC cards for mobile users’ computers.</p>
<p>Like the Access Point 8750 and Access Point 8250, the new Access Point 7250 has one of the most robust portfolios of security features on the market today. The access point supports Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption in addition to Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). AES is the encryption standard of the U.S. Government, and most 3Com competitors do not yet have that feature on their products. Security is enhanced with a variety of authentication methods including TKIP, RADIUS, MD-5 and TTLS. Additional features include 3Com Wireless LAN Manager software, speeds up to 54 Mbps and Wi-Fi certification.</p>
