HP ProCurve, the world's second-largest enterprise LAN networking vendor behind Cisco Systems, already offers network switching and routing products to such verticals as hospitality, transportation, health care, manufacturing, service provider and education. Financial terms of the deal, expected to close by the end of October, were not disclosed.
