HP buys WLAN vendor

802.11n market targeted

Hewlett-Packard plans to buy Colubris Networks, which sells wireless access infrastructure products based around the 802.11n wireless standard.

Colubris has centred many of its products around the predicted upgrade of 802.11n networks over the next few years, and also sells wireless security and network management products.

HP says products from Colubris will be incorporated into its ProCurve Networking portfolio, which will improve HP's ability to serve the healthcare, transportation, manufacturing and education markets, among others.

IDC analyst Abner Germanow says "Colubris does very well in hospitality and guest-networking hot spots — this gives ProCurve better account control."
