22 Apr 2008

Chip manufacturer Intel has signed a USD500 million deal with the government of Taiwan to develop WiMAX technology and ensure interoperability among WiMAX chip and equipment manufacturers. The agreement will see the creation of a new company which will oversee compatibility of WiMAX gear. More details of the tie-up will be released later this year. Intel is currently finalising its Montevina/Centrino 2 chipset which will enable WiMAX technology to be embedded in portable devices such as laptops for the first time.
