HP Adds Office Networking Gear to Step Up Rivalry With Cisco

Hewlett-Packard Co., the world’s largest computer maker, unveiled a switch that helps companies route data over networks, aiming to charge less for the device than comparable products from Cisco Systems Inc.

The A 10500 switch, which companies can use to deliver high-definition video and other content, will go on sale in the second half of the year, starting at $38,000, Palo Alto, California-based Hewlett-Packard said today in a statement. The company also introduced new business laptops and a wireless broadband service earlier today.
