3Com Corporation (Nasdaq: COMS) today announced it has won another new million dollar project in the Latin America federal market. The Federal Department of Justice selected 3Com® and its H3C® enterprise networking solutions after a careful competitive bid to determine the best price-performance networking solution available for modernizing the Republic’s Attorney General’s offices.

The network upgrade project will include the following 3Com solutions:
  • 140 H3C S7500E next-generation high-end multi-service routing switches in the distribution layer;
  • 50 *H3C S5600 Gigabit stackable switches at the network edge; and
  • H3C Intelligent Management Center (IMC) network management software.

“The Department’s new LAN will be expanded to include our H3C core switches, which will offer more performance, dependability and future growth capacity, and support the Department’s growing voice, video and data traffic requirements,” said Adriano Gaudencio, 3Com’s President in Brazil. “More and more companies in the region are recognizing that they no longer have to pay a premium for high-quality, enterprise networking solutions and 3Com with our H3C portfolio gives them everything they need and more, for less.”

3Com’s H3C IMC network management software is an end-to-end management solution allowing exclusive management that gives network managers a single-pane view of an entire heterogeneous enterprise network, including non-3Com/H3C devices, to offer more efficiency and value. Designed on a service-oriented architecture that effectively integrates traditionally disparate management tools, IMC can be deployed across multiple servers to provide complete management of resources, services and users, helping to reduce network administration costs.

Working with its H3C channel partner, Redisul, 3Com will initially install equipment in 44 Federal Department of Justice’s regional branches. PRG becomes another of the valued 3Com customers within the government vertical market, which also includes, Sao Paulo State’ Supreme Justice Court, Infraero, Ceara State’s Technology Company (ETICE).
