Intel says it wants agnostic wireless format that covers WiMAX and all other current technologies

Intel announced at IDF that next-generation wireless technologies are well underway. For Intel, WiMAX (802.16d) is clearly the protocol of choice and Intel demonstrated some of 802.16d's capabilities which showed great improvements over current 802.11x formats.

For some, higher wireless speeds are already being used, thanks to such technologies as MIMO (multiple in, multiple out) technologies and others that push current 802.11x technologies into delivering speeds that are near to that of 100Mbit/sec Ethernet.

Intel also mentioned that it wants a unified format that encompasses all current wireless technologies in the 802.11 range and include 802.16 as well. Next-generation Centrino notebooks -- based on the Santa Rosa platform -- for example, will be able to seamlessly connect to any hotspot regardless of protocol. Intel is calling this "agnostic" network support and says that there is no need to stick too firmly to one format, but that notebooks and chipsets should be able to work with all.
