2009: 3Com Brings Huawei To U.S. Via H3C
3Com in 2009 tried to re-establish the relevance it once had in the enterprise networking market by bringing its H3C line of gear to the U.S. and launching a new channel program around it.
That H3C equipment, produced by Huawei, was targeted at 3Com's enterprise market under the H3C name. 3Com's name was slated to be used at equipment targeting SME and SMB deployments.
2009 also saw Huawei overtake Alcatel-Lucent to become the world's third-largest mobile network gear maker, according to analyst firm Dell'Oro.
