Intel has introduced a wireless-N upgrade to its Intel Centrino Duo mobile technology that will allow improved connection to wireless networks.
The Next-Gen Wireless-N technology is based on the 802.11n Wi-Fi specification and offers up to five times the performance and twice the wireless range compared to existing products, Intel claims.
The manufacturer claims the new technology minimises ‘dead spots’ to enhance streaming of HD movies and other content.
Another announcement is the introduction of the ‘Connect with Centrino’ program, the result of partnerships with vendors such as Asus, Belkin, Buffalo, D-Link and Netgear to improve compatibility and performance.
Products from these vendors will display a ‘Connect with Centrino’ logo on their packaging to indicate they have passed Intel’s testing.
