Business Summary

A network technology corporation, specializing in enterprise networking and internet connectivity. 3COM competes with companies that make the "pipes" and "switches" that form the backbone of the Internet as a network. Quoting from the 3COM website - "Enterprise Networking - provides practical, innovative and high-value network infrastructure products for enterprises of all sizes and the public sector;" and "Connectivity - provides easy-to-use, reliable, high-performance connectivity solutions at the edge of the network." In the Internet bubble and the frenzy for new technology stocks 3COM was a high-flier stock carrying absurd multiples. It lost badly when the bubble burst.
