This article reports that Intel Corp. told the Developer forum delegates it has developed its first Wimax wireless broadband chips. Intel has already made a splash in the corporate market with its Centrino laptop chip, which allows Internet access via public wireless hotspots and corporate campus networks. But Centrino only operates at short ranges and is not designed for long-distance point-to-point connectivity between buildings. The standard has been approved by several wireless Lan suppliers and Intel is set to be the first firm to provide a silicon chip for user premises, including access points. As well as being relatively easy to self-install, Scott Richardson, Scott Richardson, general manager of Intel's broadband wireless group, said the technology would help fill a broadband connectivity gap in areas without a DSL or cable broadband link. The first chips, codenamed Rosedale, will be with manufacturers for interoperability testing next year.
