We want Wi-Fi and we want it in everything. A new report from the Wi-Fi Alliance and Wakefield Research shows the demand for Wi-Fi is exploding with no end in sight. January 6, 2011 08:00am EST
Better, faster, stronger Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ 802.11n access points, when coupled with a notebook based on Intel Centrino processor technology including Intel® Next-Gen Wireless-N, can offer up to 5x throughput¹ and up to 2x the range² over APs with 802.11a/b/g.
PORTLAND, Ore. — Giant pandas may well prefer bamboo to laptops, but wireless technology is helping researchers in China in their efforts to protect the endangered animals living in the remote Wolong Nature Reserve. Wireless technology recently installed by Intel Corp. in the mountainous 500,000-acre reserve is helping researchers communicate with one another as well as download and record data about the pandas' lives and movements — simple activities that were cumbersome and time-consuming in the preserve before the technology upgrade.
More than 500 airliners are flying around the U.S. with wireless Internet access up and running, but airlines are finding that the technology that they hope will bring new revenues may be more like in-flight meals: People gobbled up food when it was free, but they find it a lot less appetizing when they have to pay. Airlines and in-flight Wi-Fi providers say usage has been strong and is growing as more travelers sign up for the service and find it on more flights. AirTran Airways and Virgin America have Wi-Fi hotspots installed on all their aircraft: Delta Air Lines DAL -0.48% has them on more than 225 jets, and American Airlines has Wi-Fi on 100 planes.
Intel Launches Intel® Centrino™ Mobile Technology
When the Centrino Mobile brand for laptops -- those with a Pentium-M chip coupled with embedded Wi-Fi for connectivity -- shipped in March of 2003, Intel Now comes part two. Sean Connolly, Intel's world wide advertising manager, says that a portion of the company's Autumn campaign is already in gear as Intel pushes One Unwired Day, its initiative to provide free Wi-Fi Internet access as at many hotspots as will participate.
With more than 1 billion devices on the market and 802.11n now standardized, what's next for the networking technology? A panel of networking experts at Interop peers into the crystal ball.
With Wi-Fi functionality becoming a standard feature in a host of electronic devices spanning televisions, cameras and car entertainment systems, shipments of wireless local area network (WLAN) chipsets will double in 2011, according to new IHS iSuppli research.
When it comes to wireless hotspots per capita, access to broadband and the number of online shoppers and e-mail users, San Francisco is way ahead of the curve, making it one of the tech-savviest cities in the country.
The number of free wireless hotspots in the U.S. outnumber paid Wi-Fi locations for the first time , with 55.1 percent of public Wi-Fi locations available at no charge, according to a report from JiWire, an advertising company that focuses marketing specifically through Wi-Fi networks. Driving growth on the supply side are carrier and cable implementations of free hotspots, along with retailers like Sam’s Club finding value-add and location-based services to pair with traditional brick-and-mortar advertising. JiWire’s Insights report for the second quarter of 2010 show that growth of free Wi-Fi isn’t a U.S.
