Intel Charts Progress Toward Ubiquitous Wireless

At the ITU Telecom World tradeshow here this week, Intel Corporation outlined progress toward its vision of a world where ubiquitous wireless connectivity to the Internet redefines how people work, play and live.
Demonstrating this progress, the company said its Intel(R) Centrino(TM) mobile technology is one of its fastest ramping
microprocessor technologies ever. Intel has also helped simplify the process of connecting wirelessly to the Internet through its Wireless Verification Program, which is designed to verify the compatibility of Intel Centrino mobile technology-based systems with wireless hotspots. That program to-date includes more than 80 service providers, and has verified more than 24,000 wireless hotspots worldwide — double Intel’s initial projections.
