Calling all Ducks Football and sports fans! The University of Oregon collaborated with Intel to produce an Oregon Football branded avatar, available in Intel’s Pocket Avatar app, which can be used to communicate with Duck fans on game day or any other time. Pocket Avatars is a messaging application that offers consumers a unique and fun way to communicate via animated avatars. Duck Fans will be able to select “Speedy,” an Oregon football player avatar, from a broad selection within the Pocket Avatars app (available at the Apple or Google Play app stores) and use the character to record a personalized, 3-D video message, mirroring the users’ facial gestures and voice. Oregon fans can then send the message to friends, family and fans of the Ducks’ upcoming opponent via text, email, social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, or the Pocket Avatars app itself.

Tune in this Thursday, Sept. 18 at 2:15 p.m. PT to view a live-stream of Intel’s keynote address at MakerCon New York 2014. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich will talk about “making,” or do-it-yourself technology tinkering, in a corporate environment. There are more than 1,000 Intel employees that are “makers.” In the last year their tinkering and entrepreneurial spirit has led to some new product ideas, including the Intel® Edison, and examples of faster and novel ways for developing technology prototypes. In addition to prepared remarks, Krzanich will be interviewed on-stage by Dale Dougherty, CEO and founder of Maker Media and publisher of Make Magazine.

Switch SUPERNAP and Intel today announced they are working with UNLV to make the Intel “Cherry Creek” supercomputer available to UNLV researchers. The Cherry Creek supercomputer is among the world’s fastest and most powerful supercomputers. It is housed in Switch’s Las Vegas SUPERNAP data center and is available to UNLV researchers through SUPERNAP’s connectivity network. Cherry Creek uses a combination of Intel® Xeon® processors, Xeon Phi™ coprocessors and Intel® True Scale Fabric to process data roughly seven times faster than UNLV’s supercomputing center currently allows. It will act as a catalyst for scientific discovery, the modernization of applications and regional economic development efforts.

Last week at IDF Intel showed developers the latest and greatest in Intel® processor graphics technologies.

Intel has taken some important steps towards the company's goal of being second in LTE modem volume by the end of 2014. Intel's XMM™ 7262 LTE platform is now certified on China Mobile, China’s biggest carrier. Certification on China Mobile’s network gives Intel more opportunities to work with OEMs in China, one of the most exciting LTE subscriber markets. The Intel XMM 7262 offers China and the global TD-LTE ecosystem a new cost-effective option for developing mass-market LTE devices. The XMM 7262 modem features up to 23 LTE bands on a single SKU for worldwide coverage and roaming and carrier aggregation. More information is available on our blog.

For the eighth consecutive year, Intel was included in the 2014 Working Mother 100 Best Companies list. Working Mother recognized Intel for its consistent quality-of-life improvements and commitment to progressive workplace programs, including benefits, women’s issues and work-life balance such as its company culture, maternity leave and health and wellness programs.

A team of engineers from the Intel Services group placed first at the TechCrunch Disrupt 2014 hackathon for an application they created called Shower with Friends. Built using an Intel® Galileo Gen 2 development board, the Intel team turned their attention to water conservation, creating a fun way for friends to compare their actual water usage. The app makes use of sensors connected to home water lines and social networking to encourage people to change their water usage behavior. Using the app, people can time their showers and receive text messages about their usage. Information collected by the application can be shared with friends to compare and determine who took the shortest shower, thus conserving the most water. To see the application in action, visit the Intel Services blog.

More than 4,500 people from around the world gathered in San Francisco this week for the 14th Annual Intel Developer Forum.

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

  • Intel and MaxLinear showcase 32-channel solution at IBC that delivers up to 1.6 Gbps
  • Provides simple pin-compatible upgrade path from 16 to 24 to 32 channels
  • 32-channel solution offers forward compatibility to DOCSIS 3.1 networks

 

IBC, Amsterdam, Sept. 12, 2014 – Intel Corporation and MaxLinear today unveiled the next phase in the Intel® Puma™ platform family, the 32-channel Intel® Puma™ DOCSIS® 3.0 SoC combined with the 32-channel MxL268 Full-Spectrum Capture™ tuner.

 

Following the widely deployed Intel® Puma™ 6 product family supporting 16 and 24 downstream DOCSIS 3.0 platforms launched in 2012, this latest platform extends DOCSIS 3.0 gateway capabilities to 32 channels, supporting data rates up to 1.6 Gbps. This pin-compatible upgrade path from 16 to 24 to 32 channels will help cable system manufacturers meet consumer demand for faster broadband speeds. Providing a unified Intel Puma 6 development environment for every speed node allows operators to seamlessly extend their current gateway investments. Additionally, this solution provides future network compatibility with DOCSIS 3.1, which includes a requirement for up to 32 single carrier QAM channels.

 

"By listening to our customers, we have been able to satisfy the market need and quickly bring a 32-channel solution to complement our Puma 6 family to market," said Ran Senderovitz, vice president and general manager of Intel's Service Provider Division. "In a great collaboration with MaxLinear, OEMs and service providers can now upgrade their existing Intel Puma 6 gateways easily with cross-platform electrical, mechanical and software consistent silicon and platforms."

 

Intel Puma 6 and the MxL268 achieve a speedy 1.6 Gbps by bonding up to 32 DOCSIS 3.0 channels. This 32-channel system design delivers 33 percent more downstream bandwidth in the same power envelope.

 

"Working with Intel to develop the fastest data rate DOCSIS 3.0 platform is an exciting milestone for MaxLinear," said Brian Sprague, MaxLinear's vice president and general manager for Broadband and Consumer Products. "The flexibility of our Full-Spectrum Capture technology across 16-, 24-, and 32-channel designs is a great example of the value MaxLinear brings to operators launching next-generation DOCSIS cable modem and gateway products."

 

The Intel Puma family system architecture provides OEMs with flexibility to easily customize their products to fit a wide range of MSO-required and optional features such as high data rates, wireless communications, power-down modes and telephony support. Intel and MaxLinear were the first to deploy 16- and 24-channel DOCSIS 3.0 technology and are extending that innovation into 32-channel cable gateways and modems.

 

Cable operators and OEMs can view the live platform demonstration at Intel's IBC booth located in Hall 14 location L20.
