Intel To Talk Up ‘Rosedale 2′ WiMAX Chip

Intel Corp. representatives have plans to ship the “Rosedale 2″ WiMAX chip within the next 6 to 9 months, according to a company spokesperson. Unlike the current chip, Rosedale 2 will support both the current fixed version (802.16d) and the new mobile version of the 802.16 WiMAX specifications. “Nomadic” or “portable CPEs,” which are similar to a home router, can be carried from location to location, but the next step (802.16e) is for WiMAX capabilities to be shipped inside devices. At its release, the Rosedale 2 technology will work with customer premise equipment (CPEs) only — individual devices will have to wait.
