As the tablet market continues to grow and evolve, Intel is working closely with a range of customers to address the requirements of varied industries and market segments. Two recent examples are from Motion and Cisco. The rugged, lightweight Motion® CL900 Tablet PC incorporates the Intel® Atom™ Z670 processor, providing the ideal balance between power and battery consumption and is already gaining wide acceptance in the healthcare and retail segments. The Cisco Cius, also based on the Intel Atom processor-based platform, is designed for the enterprise and combines secure voice, video, collaboration, desktop virtualization and transformational business applications integrated into the user experience. The device provides customers with mobility, virtual content creation and computing capabilities and a seamless integration with a comprehensive suite of collaboration applications, including Cisco WebEx, Cisco Quad, and HD video interoperability with Cisco TelePresence. Cisco Cius tablets are already being used by companies such as Verizon, whose UCC sales team is increasing productivity by responding quickly to customers’ questions about service availability, while also leveraging the video features to communicate with specialists should customers have additional questions. The Cius is also now available to Verizon’s global enterprise customer base.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 30, 2011 – Intel Corporation today announced the formation of a wholly owned subsidiary, Intel Federal LLC, to provide strategic focus in order to better address new opportunities in working with the U.S. government. Initially Intel Federal will focus on the High Performance Computing segment, including work on exascale computing with the U.S. Department of Energy and other agencies. In time, the subsidiary will be open to working with all branches of the government.


“Reaching supercomputer performance levels of a hundred times more powerful than today by 2018 will require the combined efforts of both industry and government. An ExaFlop supercomputer’s performance is the equivalent of every person on Earth making about 150 million calculations per second. We look forward to collaborating more closely with the U.S. government on future supercomputing challenges,” said Kirk Skaugen vice president and general manager of Intel’s Datacenter and Connected Systems Group. “The creation of Intel Federal demonstrates the strategic importance of these programs and will give us the ability to establish and maintain the unique processes, procedures and controls needed to develop and manage programs with the government.”


Intel also announced that Dave Patterson has been appointed as president of Intel Federal LLC. Patterson brings an extensive array of experience to this role, most recently as president and CEO of Optelecom-NKF Inc., and prior to that as president and CEO of Siemens Government Services Inc. (SGS). Patterson will report directly to Skaugen.


Initially Intel Federal will have offices in Oregon, California and the Washington, D.C. area.  Over time Intel Federal will expand its focus to a wide variety of other programs within the government.
