Chip giant Intel has fleshed out details of its ?wired for management? initiative and has recruited 17 hardware companies and six software vendors to its cause.
The Wired for Management specification from Intel is partly based on the Net PC specification but the chip giant has attempted to push the initiative down into the mobile market.
According to Intel, the companies which now support the initiative include those which make mobile (notebook) PCs.
Intel has recommended a baseline specification and now AST, Dell, IBM and Toshiba have joined the initiative, the company said.
Software vendors joining Intel?s push to the specification include Computer Associates, IBM?s Tivoli and and Platinum Technology, which signed a deal with the company a few weeks over LanDesk.
But missing from the support for ?wired for management? is Microsoft. Rumours have persisted for several weeks that relationships between Intel and Microsoft are at an all time low.
