Intel Reveals new WiMax-WiFi Roaming

Cell TowerConverged networks. Seamless link exchange. Passing Off to the next tower. These are all things we take for granted – and your cell phone is a great example. While you can seemingly stay connected for an endless stretch of the road – you are actually making those calls from different cellular towers along the way. The closest tower is generally going to get the call. As you move, that changes and they are passed between one another without you even realizing it.
