Chip giant Intel is offering a voice over IP add-in board as part of its push
to sell motherboards.
The firm is also bundling Nvidia products with two of its motherboards - " Hell's Canyon" and "White Salmon" - as part of this channel push.
The Slick Mountain card, also known as the 600SM, comes with an Intel installer with drivers and ISP diallers. Customers have been told it will work with standard phones, whether they're wired or not, and supports Counterpath, and Skype.
Intel said that it is in the process of striking deals with Vonage, Skype, Packet 8, with Delta Three and other firms.
The "Hell's Canyon" motherboard, known as the D925XHY, is being bundled with the Nvidia 6200LE Turbo Cache 16MB card, while the "White Salmon", or D945WPM, comes with the same options. Intel describes these as special offers for its partners.
Separately, Intel Capital the venture capital arm of the chip giant has also formed a partnership with ISP Pipex, called Pipex Wireless. The new wireless operator will provide broadband services in major metropolitan areas, the two firms said.
“We see creation of this new wireless service provider as an incredible opportunity to provide new services to major cities in the UK,” said Peter Dubens, PIPEX executive chairman. “With a wireless service, Pipex Wireless will offer broadband access and services that are very complementary to Pipex’s existing business of DSL access, hosting and network access.”
