3Com has expanded its Wi-Fi wireless local area network solutions.

The new roster will now include a high-speed wireless "travel router" for business travellers, as well as new high-speed wireless printing capabilities, and new options for wireless connectivity in an office.

The new products include a travel access router that serves as a secure 54mbps 802.11g wireless router with a firewall and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security technology for use in hotels, conference rooms and offices.

3Com has also launched a high-speed 54mbps 802.11g wireless print server, the OfficeConnect Wireless 108mbps PC Card with connectivity antenna, and the compact 54mbps 802.11g wireless USB adapter.

All these solutions are ideal for SMEs wanting quick access to Wi-Fi technology.

"The growth in the number of SME individuals using laptops and embracing wireless technologies continues to grow at a blistering pace," said Michael Lauricella, an analyst at AMI-Partners. "Therefore SMEs require business solutions that empower them to work remotely in a professional and efficient manner."

The OfficeConnect Wireless 54mbps 11g Print Server extends the accessibility of printers, sharing them among wireless and wired users.
