Motorola and Intel are saddling up together to promote a new set of standards and technologies known as WiMAX. Motorola is known worldwide for their wireless devices, and Intel has pioneered many different wireless standards in the past, so this partnership makes a lot of sense. The 802.16E standards as they are called will be the next step towards unification of many wireless technologies, and Intel/Motorola are working closely to make sure that their devices are interoperable among various types.
Teaming with Intel to work on 802.16e standards and interoperability matters will complement our strategy of using 802.16e with our MOTOwi4 WiMAX solutions, said Dan Coombes, chief technology officer, Motorola Networks.
Wireless is booming, and for as far as the eye can see it is likely the future of networking, computing and communications. The types of things laid out by these companies include vehicle safety devices, various mobile devices, PC equipment and much more.
