Chipmaker turns to networking

New networking products for small businesses were launched by Intel yesterday in conjunction with its Megalaunch '99 event, a seminar highlighting Intel's network products group.

Brian Forbes, the product marketing manager for Intel's Network Communications Group (NCG), Asia/Pacific, was in Sydney yesterday to launch the new products and enlighten users about Intel's networking goals and offerings.

For small businesses or small networks, Intel has released the InBusiness Print Station, a new addition to the Intel InBusiness product line aimed specifically at networks of 1-50 seats. The InBusiness Print Station provides a "simple and low cost way to connect PCs to a printer", said Forbes.

Intel has been beefing up its networking group with acquisitions, its most recent the purchase of remote access vendor Shiva, which has recently become a business unit of the NCG.

Intel is also forging into the home networking market. The company announced earlier this year its intentions to bring to market a product that allows consumers to link together two or more PCs using existing telephone wiring. That product will be launched in the US this year, whether it will come to Australia, Forbes said, will be determined according to market response. Such a product, may not even be viable in Australia, he said, because telephone wiring is not owned by home-owners, but leased from Telstra.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
