H3C, a leading provider of integrated mobile network solutions, launched its first WLAN solutions in 2008, and has remained number one enterprise WLAN solution provider in China since then. According IDC, H3C has shipped more than 6 million WLAN products (AP) after entering the market.
The H3C’s WLAN R&D team was officially formed in 2000, and designed the industry's first Gigabit Wireless Controller WX6100, before launching WA2600, the first enterprise-class 802.11n AP in 2008. H3C has constantly sought to improve the quality of available wireless solutions for both indoor and outdoor installation, amassing over 750 WLAN technology patents through sustained R&D investment of around $30M per year.
