If you are at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco this week you might want to visit the System-on-a-Chip Community for a very cool demonstration of streaming media over WiMax. Our Intel IT Team put this demostration together working with the Intel product developers and their ecosystem partners.
This demonstration shows a connection between a corporate office and a remote branch office via WiMax. The branch office uses an all-in-one appliance (a secure mesh router) containing a WiMax radio. The corporate office has a WiMax basestation and streams multimedia content over the network connection back to the branch office.
The secure mesh router in the demonstration is built using an Intel(R) EP80579 Integrated Processor formerly known as Tolapai. EP80579 is the first integrated processor that is a system-on-a-chip (SOC). This is important because it hails a new generation of smart, flexible, light and simple devices for the embedded internet. As an IT Researcher I'm no product expert so check out the full official SOC Press Kit for more details.
