3Com Corp. has formed alliances with a group of gateway vendors to create offerings for Wi-Fi-certified wireless hotspots worldwide.
The list of alliance vendors include Aptilo Networks, IP3 Networks, Nomadix, PatronSoft and Pronto Networks.
The prospect of new wireless hotspots, ideally suited for hotels, airport terminals, train stations, cafes and community centers, will also create new opportunities for system integrators within 3Com’s channel partner program, the company says.
The program will involve integrating authentication gateways and software with 3Com’s wireless access points, Power over Ethernet technology and security devices to build new public wireless LANs.
