Qualcomm’s WiFi Joins With Airgo To Battle Intel’s WiMAX

Qualcomm is buying Airgo Networks and announced plans to market the latter’s so-called “802.11n Draft 2.0-compliant” chipset. The said silicon is due to make an appearance at CES 2007 in Las Vegas. Some analysts believe it will not be an easy road for Qualcomm. At the moment, some 370 technical issues beset Draft 2.0 and IEEE members are not expected to vote on the specifications until March 2007. In addition, the company is facing stiff competition from Intel, which is aggressively marketing its own WiMax equipment.
