Evaluating Intel® Pro Wireless Display for Enterprise Use
Recognizing the significant benefits wireless display technology can bring to the enterprise, Intel IT and Intel’s product development team are working together to craft a product—Intel® Pro Wireless Display (Intel® Pro WiDi)—that meets enterprise needs. These groups have collaborated to define feature requirements and then implement them in a user-friendly product.
Intel’s wireless display technology now incorporates those features that are most important in an enterprise setting and provides benefit to both end users and to IT. Wireless display technology provides several benefits to users, including the following:
• Improves the user experience in conferences rooms by eliminating the need to use cables or to trade seats when sharing content from transmitter devices—such as laptops, business Ultrabook™ devices, and tablets.
• Facilitates collaboration in less formal meeting areas. This ability is becoming increasingly important with the growing diversity of devices in use at Intel, both IT-supplied and personally owned, many of which do not include wired cabling capabilities.
Intel IT can also benefit from wireless display technology:
• Expenses for cabling and switch equipment in newly constructed facilities can be reduced.
• It enables us to manage bandwidth competition during concurrent use as wellas global policies for both transmitter and display devices, and provides interoperability with the enterprise Wi-Fi network.
We plan to conduct a proof of concept (PoC) late in 2013 and start targeted deployments of Intel Pro WiDi in 2014.
