SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Oct 14, 2010 -- After HP's acquisition of 3Com, it is now the second largest Ethernet vendor by total port shipments, pushing D-Link down a notch, say In-Stat ( www.in-stat.com). While it is still too early to tell if synergies between HP and 3Com will result in a stronger competitor to Cisco, it is definitely a noteworthy contender to watch closely, now accounting for 20% of worldwide Ethernet port shipments.
