Computex Taipei 2010 Expo: Intel Corporation’s RelentlessDedication to Mobile WiMAXhttp://w w w .goingw imax.com/computex-taipei-2010-expo-intel-corporations-relentless-dedication-to-mobile-w imax-10873/ December 1, 2011Sanjiv Gupta on June 16, 2010 Once again, history in broadband wireless for PC communications was made in Kiev, Ukraine on the week of May 24th, 2010 with the official launching of Intel’s embedded Mobile WiMAX solution by Freshtel. Intel Corporation in conjunction with Freshtel partnered up to demonstrate several WiMAX- Ready PCs containing Intel’s silicon ingredients (Intel Core Ix Processor for Notebooks, Intel Atom N4xx Processor for Netbooks and Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N + WiMAX 6250 for Mobile Broadand). One week later, Intel showed off its latest processor technologies embedded inside a variety of standard/ultra-low – voltage notebooks, standard/sleek netbooks andstandard/slate tablets (e.g. JooJoo Slate Tablet, Network Navigator NAV9, etc.) at Computex 2010in Taipei, Taiwan.Using Intel’s processing power, a variety of dazzling applications were demonstrated: e.g. 3Dvideo, augmented reality, Intel Wireless Display, Intel(R) My WiFi Technology, MeeGo, etc. atseveral booths which comprised the impressive Intel pavilion. Taking center stage inside the IntelPavilion was one of the Intel Mobility booths – this particular one was dedicated to demonstratinglive WiMAX using a slew of PCs available in the market (Lenovo Thinkpad T410 Notebook (Intel®Core™ i5 CPU M520 @ 2.40GHz w/NVIDIA NVS 3100M), Lenovo Thinkpad T510 Notebook (IntelCore i7 CPU M620 @ 2.67GHz w/ Graphics Media Accelerator HD), Lenovo Thinkpad X201SNotebook (VMAX- Certified), Acer Aspire 5745 Notebook, MSI U135 Netbook (Intel Atom CPUN450 @ 1.66GHz/1.67GHz), ASUS EeePC 1001PG Netbook (VMAX – Certified, Intel Atom CPUN450 @ 1.66GHz/1.67GHz), Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 Netbook (Intel® Atom™ CPU N450 @1.66GHz/1.67GHz), 2Go Classmate PC E10 Netbook (technology demo, Intel® Atom™ CPU N450@ 1.66GHz/1.67GHz), and Samsung NP-N210 Netbook (Intel® Atom™ CPU N450 @1.66GHz/1.67GHz)).The WiMAX-Enabled Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 and Toshiba Satellite U505 can both be purchased @Best Buy inside the US. All PCs contained the Intel 6250 WiMAX PCI Express Mini card – with oneset of PCs (Lenovo, Samsung, MSI) connected to an in-pavilion Alvarion WiMAX Base Station @3.5GHz channel frequency, whereas the others (Dell, Acer, 2Go, ASUS) were connected to theextended VMAX network (in-pavilion Samsung WiMAX Base Station) @ 2.5GHz. The emphasishere was to show the global frequency support of Intel’s embedded WiMAX solution. A large highdefinition display showed off some killer applications requiring WiMAX‘s broadband pipe: e.g.Livecasting from Taipei’s VMAX network, Livecasting from Portland’s CLEAR network (Tri-Mettrains) and Microsoft IIS Smooth Streaming of Big Buck Bunny.In the Taipei VMAX network, two mobile travelers were each equipped with a backpack containingan Acer 1201N Netbook (Windows 7, Intel Dual Core Atom N330, Nvidia Ion GPU), a VMAX USBdongle, and a MSFT HD Web cam. Both mobile travelers traversed the streets of Taipei from theawe-inspiring Taipei 101 (near TICC) to the Nankang Convention Hall while livecasting back intothe Intel Booth. Similarly, a static Lenovo Thinkpad T510 w/6250 and webcam was livecasting viathe VMAX network from inside the VMAX Booth at WiMAX Expo while another static Core Ix
Processor based PC was livecasting from the MSI Booth inside the WiMAX Expo. In addition toIntel, there were several other companies (VEE, VMAX, MSI, Acer, ECS ELITEGROUP, Fujitsu,Gateway, GEMTEK, SEQUANS (e.g. Sprint HTC EVO 4G, etc.), etc.) featuring WiMAX as theirmajor theme both inside the Nankang Hall as well as the WiMAX Expo.
