Intel announces Digital Communities initiative

Intel and members of its WiFi and WiMax ecosystems today announced the "Digital Communities" initiative, a program designed to help municipal governments deploy and use wireless technologies. Intel's Digital Communities program will help municipalities design many types of applications, including mobilizing workers such as meter readers and building inspectors, bringing broadband services to areas that are currently underserved, and using wireless technologies in schools. Intel said it plans to work with a group of companies in its ecosystem to help 13 pilot communities deploy comprehensive solutions and services.
