Hungry to grow its networking business (one of its few bright spots) at Cisco's expense, H-P (HPQ) has taken the risk of launching a pay-as-you-go option for enterprises. H-P will provide networking gear to service providers at no up-front cost; the SPs will then strike managed services deals with enterprises; and H-P will get paid based on the number of ports activated. Swisscom has signed up to offer the service, which is similar to a subscription service offered by Brocade (BRCD).
