During a media and analyst briefing today, Intel discussed how Intel® architecture (IA) is becoming a foundation for network transformation by powering new technologies for Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). This transformation is being  led by Highland Forest, a new communications platform that combines the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v2 with the next generation of the Intel® Communications Chipset Series 89xx (codename Coleto Creek). According to Steve Price, general manager of Intel’s Communication Infrastructure Division, Highland Forest will boost the performance of network traffic, delivering up to 255 million packets per second. Highland Forest will also create efficiencies for telecom customers though workload consolidation, streamlined R&D resources, common software tools and faster system integration. Price also highlighted the critical role of the ecosystem in delivering these solutions, enabled by Intel’s Network Builders program. This blog from Rose Schooler, general manager and vice president of Intel’s Data Center Group, provides insight on the increasing role of the data center in networking and how standards are driving network transformation.

Industry analyst Mike Feibus sees a happy holiday ahead for 2 in 1s. He penned a column for Information Week, Black Friday Looks Bright for Hybrid PC's", predicting a much better PC holiday selling season than we saw in 2012 - largely based on the exciting new 2 in 1 offerings on shelves now. Mike feels 25- to 34-year olds are the most likely to be enticed by these systems as they look for multiple uses and "real" capabilities, and they are old enough to have learned the lesson of investing in the wrong system. A "stable of spectacular systems" awaits them on Black Friday!

With "Black Friday" nearly upon us, a new infographic from Intel shows that U.S. consumers spend almost $300,000 per minute shopping online, producing an unprecedented amount of data around shopping habits and preferences. Consumers also crave deals – 78 percent would purchase more from shops that send them targeted offers. However 59 percent of retailers cite that lack of consumer insights has prevented them from creating a more personalized shopping experience. The insights are there for the taking. Retailers are starting to leverage big data technologies to provide more tailored shopping experiences, helping to increase sales and create more loyalty from 85 percent of customers – delivering a better experience for both consumers and their favorite stores.

  • Intel opens its first-ever pop-up stores in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York neighborhoods.
  • Stores showcase the latest Intel-based 2 in 1 devices, tablets and more for the holiday season with an opportunity to buy online through a retail partner.
  • Intel Experience Stores created with and for the community to encourage local involvement and activities, including technology recycling program.



SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 22, 2013 – For the first time in its history, Intel Corporation is opening community-based, pop-up retail stores to show off some of the latest devices available this holiday season.


Opening this week in the Nolita neighborhood in New York, Lincoln Park in Chicago and Venice, Calif., the Intel Experience Stores will give visitors the unique opportunity to interact with some of the latest Intel-based devices including laptops, tablets, 2 in 1 devices and portable all-in-one PCs.  Visitors will also have access to Intel technology experts who can help with purchase decisions and provide technology advice.


The Intel Experience Stores will also enable people to test drive some of the latest Intel-based devices at home, providing a unique opportunity to truly "try before you buy." Visitors can purchase devices online from inside the store via BestBuy.com/IntelExperience. Special deals and promotions will be offered at the Intel Experience Stores throughout the holiday season.


Offering a unique in-store experience for visitors, the physical form of each Intel store will change up to three times per day. The stores will be a community hub in the mornings, transform into a technology showcase in the afternoons and then become an entertainment hot spot in the evenings, offering a variety of activities that will also change daily. Visitors can enjoy free coffee every morning, free movies every Friday, featured speakers from the community on a variety of topics and more. A full schedule of activities will be posted online at www.intel.com/stores and communicated through a weekly newsletter distributed in each neighborhood.


"The Intel pop-up stores are designed to be far more than a traditional retail or product showcase, but rather an experience," said Kevin Sellers, vice president, Sales and Marketing Group and director, Creative Services at Intel. "We're engaging the local community with a daily schedule of events and entertainment, while offering hands-on access to, and in-store demonstrations of, the latest Intel-based devices available for the holidays – all in a fun, relaxed neighborhood environment."


As part of the pop-up store initiative, Intel will work with neighboring businesses and organizations to give back and reinvest in the future of the local communities. For example, Intel will offer a technology recycling program through which visitors can bring a wide range of old technology, from small electronics to laptops and printers, to the store to be properly recycled. In exchange, Intel will make a cash or technology donation to local schools in the area. Intel will also invite local technology makers and aspiring inventors to showcase their innovation skills and participate in a challenge that gives back to the community.


The first Intel Experience Store will open in New York in the Nolita neighborhood on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 10 a.m. Additional Intel Experience Stores will open in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago on Monday, Nov. 25 and in the Venice neighborhood in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Nov. 26. The stores will be open through the holiday season, closing on Jan. 25, 2014. For more information about the Intel Experience Stores, visit www.intel.com/stores.
