The combination of wired and wireless technology will be key to doing business over the Internet in the future, said Intel's CEO and President Craig Barrett in his keynote on Tuesday here at the Intel Developer Forum in San Jose, California.
It is Intel's mission to provide the connectivity between the two technologies.
"Wired and wireless technology will not compete, but will work together," Barrett said.
Barrett addressed his audience of developers and journalists by saying that "nobody can build the Internet alone, we need to do it together." However, he went on to say that Intel can build a complete Internet infrastructure in 48 hours.
Barrett also had a message for customers. "The challenge for companies who want to become 100-percent e-business companies is to connect all the areas of the business into one e-business computing environment." For example, companies need to combine the interaction with their direct and indirect suppliers with their direct and indirect customers into the same infrastructure. Needless to say, Intel will be there to provide that connectivity, he said.
More to follow soon.
The Intel Developer Forum continues through Thursday here in San Jose, California.
