HOTSPOTZZ and Intel Team

Mar 04, 2003

HOTSPOTZZ, a provider of Wi-Fi hotspots, has announced it is working with Intel Corporation to promote its service in conjunction with the forthcoming Intel Centrino mobile technology for notebook PCs. HOTSPOTZZ has wireless-enabled locations in retail chains, independent cafes, hotels, business centers, restaurants, and other public venues. Intel's new Centrino mobile technology includes a new mobile processor, chipset, and built-in Wi-Fi capability. This technology will be implemented in PC manufacturers' notebook computers and will be available in March. HOTSPOTZZ and Intel are working together to drive awareness of Wi-Fi (802.11) hotspots--areas where notebook users can connect to the Internet and corporate networks wirelessly. In an effort to enable a better wireless experience, the two companies are testing the HOTSPOTZZ network with Intel Centrino mobile technology to enable high levels of compatibility. The companies are also collaborating on a new signage program that will inform users they are in a HOTSPOTZZ hotspot, one that has been tested and verified to work together with Intel Centrino mobile technology.
