Intel Haifa Staff Tap Away In WiFi Bomb Shelters

The Hizbollah-instigated bombings did not affect the work of the staff at Intel Corp’s Haifa research center in Israel as the company’s bomb shelters were fully equipped with a wireless network. Intel Israel spokesman Kobi Bachar said he does not “see any impact on output” of the weekend incident in Israel’s largest city, adding that “those working from home have connections and laptops with wireless so there is no problem with connectivity.” The company has been operating in Israel for over three decades now and plans to construct a second $4 billion chip plant in the town of Kiryat Gat near an existing facility that is due to open by the second half of 2008.
