Intel Centrino Pro
Intel this morning added the Centrino Pro to its mix of mobile platforms. The design calls for not only 802.11n wireless as standard but for the use of the company's Active Management technology for portables, giving IT managers a built-in way to control the network without being tied to a desktop. Owners of any Centrino Pro-based notebook can administrate other powered systems on the network while on Wi-Fi; systems physically attached to the network can even be checked while turned off.
The formal rollout of Centrino Pro is due to take place at the same time as Intel's "Santa Rosa" general Centrino platform is made public, which should take place within the next few weeks.
