3COM CORP RESPONDS TO INTEL AS PRICE WAR IS EXTENDED TO HUBS

By CBR Staff Writer

In February this year, Intel slashed the price of its Fast Ethernet network interface cards and within days 3Com Corp had reacted by doing the same to its rival produce lines. The move sparked a price war in the market that left all the network interface card vendors caught up in the wake. Now, when Intel is looking to undercut rivals in the Fast Ethernet Hub market with its Intel Express 10/100 Stackable range, launched earlier this week (CI No 3,145), 3Com has once again been fastest to react. The company has duly announced that its SuperStack II Hub 100 Class II will sell for $109 per port, a 35% cut. It also cut prices on its SuperStack II Dual Speed Hub, a 10/100 Mbps auto- sensing per port product to $109 per port, a 38% cut. The SuperStack II Hub 100 has either 12 or 24 autosensing ports. 3Com says it will provide optional Gigabit Ethernet module capability for its SuperStack II Switch solutions, in the next quarter.
