The company said it would immediately offer a variety of networking devices, such as shared hubs and dedicated switches, for small- and medium-sized businesses and corporate enterprises. The products include desktop switches for small and home offices as well as versatile Ethernet-based switches for departments in large networks.
The company will use the networking industry trade show Networld+Interop to display the new wares--numbering more than 20--this week.
The company may be looking for ways to further diversify its computer products portfolio. The company announced its intentions to make a network computer last November. The company has said recently that its sales of Mac clones are expected to have a less important role in the company's product mix.
