Intel's Telecom Weapon: WiMax Via BweekSean Moloney says this wireless technology will surprise critics: "I'm just looking forward to proving people wrong"In the past three years, Intel has become one of the prime backers of some innovative, high-speed wireless technologies -- including Wi-Fi and WiMax -- that promise to reshape the telecommunications industry. While Wi-Fi can cover a few hundred feet, WiMax has a range of up to 25 to 30 miles. That makes it an alternative to traditional broadband technologies, which use phone and cable pipes.The next wave of personal productivity at work is about mobility, with people wanting to get access anywhere.
