3Com's Storage Shines in China

3Com, whose $2.2 billion acquisition by Bain Capital hit the rocks last week is seeing strong sales of its storage offerings in China.

The vendor's Q3 results, released last night, were boosted by a 10 percent year-over-year revenue hike in China, as well as strong performance from 3Com's Hong Kong-based H3C subsidiary.

"The other significant positive performance driver in the quarter was progress the H3C team has been making in selling its high-end routers as well as its new products and services, such as IP storage and IP video surveillance," said Edgar Masri, 3Com's CEO, during a conference call last night.

"These products and services not only have higher margin, they also pull through our switching and routing products."

3Com's total Q3 revenues were $337 million, up from $323.4 million in the same period last year, beating analysts' estimates of $333 million.
