The article discusses the need of radio technology for the convergence of ideas, innovation and functionality of wireless technology to address consumer demand. Within a single device, the user might want three types of radio connectivity: connectivity between a wireless wide-area network and his cellular carrier, connectivity between a wireless local-area network into his local computing and Internet resources, and connectivity from a wireless personal-area network into his telephone headset. To meet the challenge of seamless wireless connectivity, Intel is working on integrating multiple circuits and systems onto a single silicon die. Intel's concept of agile radio is to enable a single radio device to select any supported radio protocol or associated frequency.
