‘Baxter Peak’ brings Intel, NSN together

Baxter Peak, the Intel Corporation brand of WiMAX has become the centre of interface between Intel and Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN).

This, Intel said was in an effort to ensure that mobile WiMAX products work well together with other products globally.

Announcing this collaboration at the just concluded WiMAX forum in Chicago at the weekend, the companies said that they were testing interoperability across Intel’s forthcoming WiMAX silicon for laptops and mobile Internet devices, Nokia WiMAX devices and Nokia Siemens Networks WiMAX infrastructure equipment.

Just as Nokia reiterated it will use Intel’s WiMAX silicon product, codenamed “Baxter Peak “ and designed specifically for mobile Internet and consumer electronic devices, in its soon to unveil Nokia Nseries Internet Tablets.

The Internet tablets will be among the very first WiMAX-enabled open Internet devices expected to ship in 2008.

General manager, Intel’s Mobile Wireless Group, Raviv Melamed, noted that WiMAX enables the mobile Internet and makes it possible to get content on a variety of new mobile devices at broadband speed, and ‘Baxter Peak’ solution was designed specifically for these exciting new devices.

“Intel, Nokia and Nokia Siemens Networks all recognize our collective responsibility in ensuring that people can take full advantage of WiMAX. Simply put, the infrastructure behind the networks and the devices that access those networks must work together seamlessly,” Melamed said.

Mobile WiMAX is a broadband wireless technology that provides multi-megabit speed, great throughput for accessing large amounts of such data as movies and multi-media content, and wide range to access the data over long distances.

WiMAX devices and equipment that have been tested for compatibility with each other will help make it easier for consumers to roam from network to network with their Internet devices wherever they go for an always-connected, mobile experience.

Also speaking, Vice President, Nokia Multimedia, Ari Virtanen, said that WiMAX would translate into people being able to take their favourite Internet experiences, be it watching videos, streaming music or doing research on the Internet, “on the go without compromising on quality.”
