Intel in Communications
"The telecommunications industry has experienced a decade's-worth of change in the past year: significantly reduced revenues, headcount, and R&D spending. As a result, we see a rapidly emerging pattern of designs using standards-based building blocks, enabling lower-cost platforms and faster time to market. Intel is placing all of its focus on products and research that support this 'modular' approach."
Sean Maloney, Executive VP and General Manager, Intel Communications Group

Intel is driving the development and broad adoption of numerous industry standards in the communications space to ensure that customers have the broadest possible choice of standards-based communications products.
