Intel Reveals Plans For New Notebook Platform Tailored For Chinese University Students


Neusoft Institute of Information Adopts Intel Centrino Mobile Technology-Based Notebooks for More Than 8,000 Students

Intel Corporation China today announced the next phase of its successful Intel Mobile Initiative for Learning in Education, revealing plans for a new notebook platform specifically designed for Chinese university students. The new notebook platform, codenamed "Tanggula," will be stylish and light-weight, and will come in a range of affordable performance and entry-level designs for students and parents.

Intended for demanding university student uses and lifestyles, the new platform will include such features as enhanced security, wireless capability, and high quality sound and audio for multi-media enabled interactive learning and entertainment.1 The system will have specific features for students, which will be disclosed closer to the platform's introduction. Initial OEM systems based on the Tanggula platform are expected to be available in the second half of this year.

The Tanggula notebook platform from Intel will also feature Common Building Block Program-compliant notebook sub-system ingredients. The Common Building Block program is an initiative to define common notebook ingredients based on pre-existing industry specifications in order to improve ingredient consistency and notebook quality while reducing notebook assembly costs and time-to-market for manufacturers.

Intel also announced that Neusoft Institute of Information's entire student body of more than 8,000 has been equipped with Intel Centrino? mobile technology-based notebooks and wireless LAN successfully tested and deployed through the Intel Mobile Initiative for Learning in Education.

Launched in 2004, the Intel Mobile Initiative for Learning in Education aims to accelerate the adoption of mobile computing and wireless technologies in more than 300 universities throughout the Asia Pacific region. More than 100 universities are participating in the program in China.

"Intel's mobile computing technology has the power to completely reinvent how people teach, research and study, especially at a university level where collaboration and flexibility are so important," said David (Dadi) Perlmutter, vice president and general manager, Mobility Group, Intel. "The Intel Mobile Initiative for Learning in Education has helped many of China's top universities to break the boundaries of traditional lecture halls and begin their transformation into roaming, all-access research libraries that provide students and teachers a more flexible environment for learning and teaching."

Based in Dalian, the Neusoft Institute of Information deployment is one of the largest deployments of Intel Centrino mobile technology-based notebooks among educational institutions. To enable its academic community to take full advantage of the campus-wide deployment of mobile technology, Neusoft has also deployed wireless networks on campus.

"Intel mobile technology is helping us to revolutionize education at Neusoft by extending the ability of students to study, research and work with each other wherever and whenever they want on campus," said Mr. Wen Tao, president of Neusoft Institute of Information. "Now, every part of the campus can be a classroom, a library, a laboratory and an office. This is part of how Neusoft is distinguishing itself as one of China's most advanced institutes of higher education."

Other universities and institutes of higher education across China participating in the Intel Mobile Initiative for Learning in Education are equally enthusiastic of Intel's efforts and the support provided by participating companies, including HP, IBM, Lenovo and Ocamar Technologies. Many note the positive impact of Intel's mobile technology on their students and faculty:

"As a renowned, key national university in Mid-West China, Xi'an Jiaotong University has long been focusing on the use of IT in education," said Zheng Qinghua, Vice Dean of Internet Education School, Xi'an Jiaotong University. "We selected a wireless network solution provided by Ocamar interoperable with Intel Centrino mobile technology. It complements our existing wired network, improves the quality of our education and brings convenience to teachers and students."

"With strength in Electronic Information education and research, we are devoted to fostering high-tech talent in this area for China and promoting research on Electronic Information theory and technology," said Wang Wenyong, Director of Network Center, University of Electronic Science and Technology of Chengdu. "The secure, convenient campus wireless network solution and notebooks based on Intel Centrino mobile technology we selected have greatly changed the way we learn, teach, work and communicate."

"When constructing our secure, convenient wireless campus network, we adopted a solution from Ocamar, with implementation support from Intel and HP," said Gu Yizhong, Standing Vice Director of Network Center (NC), Shanghai Jiaotong University. "Now, our stable wireless network complements the University's wired network, and is accelerating us towards our objective of an 'All-access Campus Network.'"

"Intel Centrino mobile technology-based notebook computers and wireless networks facilitate our students in accessing campus networks, and enable scholars coming to attend academic conferences to access the Internet," said Xing Jun, CEO, Ocamar Technology.

Intel, the world's largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products. Additional information about Intel is available at www.intel.com/pressroom
