Intel Santa Rosa to support 802.11n and 802.16d

Intel announced it's next-generation Centrino platform, codenamed Santa Rosa, will feature support for WiMAX (802.16d) and 802.11.
For some, higher wireless speeds are already being used, thanks to such technologies as MIMO (multiple in, multiple out) technologies and others that push current 802.11x technologies into delivering speeds that are near to that of 100Mbit/sec Ethernet.

Intel also mentioned that it wants a unified format that encompasses all current wireless technologies in the 802.11 range and include 802.16 as well. Next-generation Centrino notebooks -- based on the Santa Rosa platform -- for example, will be able to seamlessly connect to any hotspot regardless of protocol.
