Intel officially introduces a WiMAX Silicon Solution.

We reported about WiMAX first time 1 year ago. WiMAX, short for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a standards-based wireless technology for providing high-speed, last-mile broadband connectivity to homes and businesses and for mobile wireless networks.
Intel ships what was previously codenamed "Rosedale". The Intel PRO/Wireless 5116 broadband interface device is based on the IEEE 802.16-2004 standard. The Intel PRO/Wireless 5116 broadband interface is the first 802.16-2004 system-on-chip optimized for cost-effective WiMAX modems and residential gateways.
Lets see how long it takes until Carriers liek AT^T or BT are offering WiMAX.
