According to Crusher, X-Bit Labs has reported that for the first time, Intel will be rolling up its sleeves and aid regions to implement the WiMax infrastructure. Two major industrial city in China, Dalian and Chengdu, has agreed to work hand-in-hand with Intel Corp. to develop a WiMax zone.
Intel Corporation this week projected inking a deal with the Chinese municipal governments to build two WiMAX zones in Dalian and Chengdu to provide broadband wireless Internet in the areas where using cables is either economically inexpediently or cannot satisfy all demands for the connection.
The memorandum of understanding (MOU) outlines plans to deploy network infrastructure to take advantage of next-generation WiMAX broadband wireless technology (also known as 802.16), which provides a wireless alternative for last-mile broadband connectivity to businesses and homes. Specific terms of the agreements were not disclosed.
Communications have changed the way people treat personal computers. Not a lot of consumers are interested in PCs with no connection to the Internet these days. However, being not satisfied with WLAN that is available only near special hot-spots and GPRS that allows only relatively low-speed connection, end-users aim at something that is fast and is available everywhere. High-speed Internet and availability everywhere is something that 3G and WiMAX technologies are able to offer later in this decade.
