<p>Will Support 3Com’s Efforts as Company Continues to Drive Growth in Secure Converged Networks</p>
<p>Sydney Australia – 26 September 2005 – Meeting the rapid rise of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), 3Com Corporation has appointed Chris Brown as its convergence business manager, Asia Pacific.</p>
<p>Based in Sydney, Brown’s appointment is a direct response to increased market opportunities for 3Com’s VCX™ and NBX® IP Telephony solutions throughout the Asia Pacific region. It also demonstrates further commitment to the continuation of 3Com’s Secure, Converged Network strategy, which ensures business networks can carry all traffic with security, reliability and interoperability.</p>
<p>Brown brings with him 25 years industry experience working at regional levels in the UK, Europe, Japan and Asia Pacific in product marketing and channel engagement roles. His extensive career at Nortel included managing the roll-out of new products, most recently their Convergence platform, across the Asia Pacific region.</p>
<p>Brown commented, “IP telephony is now part of the corporate mainstream in Asia Pacific. It is therefore critical that vendors act now while the market window is open to build market share, strengthen partner and customer relationships and establish a platform for ongoing business growth.”</p>
<p>“By continually refining product skills amongst the reseller base, offering unique product value, and providing first-class back-up collateral and support, 3Com is working toward becoming a leading player in the Asia Pacific convergence market.”</p>
<p>3Com’s IP telephony solutions are currently being implemented widely in small and mid-sized organisations throughout Asia Pacific. Brown will ensure this growth pattern continues while enhancing 3Com’s strong push into the enterprise market.</p>
<p>Brown added,”3Com already has a strong base of partners covering the SME market, as well as select range of partners addressing full enterprise requirements. My aim is to support and grow the existing enterprise partners while working with the high-end SME partners that have the skills, resources and enthusiasm to service our customers and prospects in the enterprise space.”</p>
<p>Brown has a Bachelor of Science from the University of Reading, UK. A true technology enthusiast, he is passionate about all aspects of home-based multimedia, including digital video editing and restoring analogue recordings from archive vinyl records.</p>
