Intel introduces WiMAX platform
Posted on 19-Apr-2005 01:47. | Tags Filed under: News.



Intel Corporation has announced the availability of its first WiMAX product, providing equipment manufacturers and carriers the ability to deliver next-generation wireless broadband networks around the world.

In addition, several service providers worldwide announced plans to begin commercial WiMAX trials based on Intel silicon products later this yea. Some equipment providers also announced WiMAX solutions based on Intel's product.

WiMAX, short for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a standards-based wireless technology for providing high-speed, last-mile broadband connectivity to homes and businesses and for mobile wireless networks. The platform delivers the features needed to provide cost-effective, high-speed wireless modems for homes and businesses.

Intel says that initial deployments will enable delivery of broadband Internet access to remote areas not currently served by DSL or cable, and will make it possible to wirelessly connect buildings up to several miles apart. Because it is standards-based, WiMAX technology is expected to make it easier and more cost-effective for new and existing broadband users to enjoy wireless Internet access.

Previously codenamed "Rosedale," the Intel PRO/Wireless 5116 broadband interface device is based on the IEEE 802.16-2004 standard, giving carriers and end-users the confidence that equipment from different vendors will work together. WiMAX solutions based on 802.16-2004 enable the creation of high-speed, fixed wireless broadband networks, providing Internet connectivity, Internet Protocol (IP) and TDM Voice capabilities and IP-based real-time video at high speeds.

Some of the carriers working with Intel to enable a broad ecosystem around WiMAX include: AT&T (US), Altitude Telecom (France), BT (UK), Brasil Telecom (Brazil), ETB (Columbia), Iberbanda (Spain), Millicom (Argentina), Qwest (US), Sify (India), Speakeasy (US), Telkom (South Africa), Telmex (Mexico), TowerStream (US), and UHT (Ukraine).
