Buy Market Share

Cisco bids $3B for Tandberg, but the video conferencing equipment maker's stock holders aren't happy (like here).

HP buys 3Com for $2.7B to target Cisco.

Logitech buys Lifesize for $405M to get deep into video conferencing. Why do all these companies think video is the gold?

Cisco announced plans to purchase Starent Networks, a maker of wireless equipment, for $2.9B.

Lots of consolidation (to increase market share), but is it to eliminate competition in a less than robust market?
