HP to buy Colubris Networks

Hewlett Packard's Procurve Networking Division is buying enterprise WLAN firm Colubris Networks. Colubris specializes in public-access applications, most notably in the hospitality industry. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The acquisition will give HP a higher profile in the WLAN space and provide instant access to 802.11n products, which HP doesn't have in its Procurve product line. In addition, the deal will ultimately give HP a broader unified wired/wireless product line, which is important in closing the big deals.
