Intel rolled out WiMax, an effort to replace WiFi by keeping equipment manufacturing costs as low as possible.
This will involve persuading Asian manufacturers to ramp up volume production of hardware in order to reduce costs. At the same time the company is planning up to 100 trials of wireless broadband services around the world to stimulate demand.
Scott Richardson, general manager of Intel's broadband wireless solutions division said that wherever you see WiFi today we envision seeing WiMax tomorrow. WiMax will be used for all kind of platforms: laptops, PCs, phones and other portable devices.
