While I was stuck down on the Jones Farm, my colleagues in the MPG Wireless Go-to-Market team were rock’n at the 2008 Cisco Live conference in Orlando, Florida. This event is the mothership for serious enterprise IT with more than 10,000 attendees.
The Cisco Live theme “Power of Collaboration” was the perfect backdrop for this first-time Intel mobility presence. Lyle Warnke, Jon Marshall and Sanjiv Gupta drove Intel’s Diamond Sponsorship that set the stage for Intel, the leader in mobile platforms and wireless clients, and Cisco, the leader in wireless IT infrastructure to connect in a big way on next-generation enterprise mobility.
Intel has a great enterprise mobility story to tell this year, from the Intel® Centrino® with vPro™ Technology platform with business-class Wireless-N (802.11n) to the next level of mobile productivity with Intel’s WiMAX Broadband-On-the-Go technology.
The coolest thing at the Intel booth was first-time-ever technology demonstration of a connection between an Intel® Centrino® notebook with Intel’s Echo Peak WiMAX client and the Cisco WiMAX base station. This link up promises to unleash new mobility usage models for the enterprise and emerging markets.
