Greenpacket launches new PAN technology
Interact Collabright personal area network will allow device to device file sharing, chat and collaboration
Mobile broadband specialist Greenpacket has launched a new personal area network (PAN) technology, named Interact Collabright.
Built on Intel's My WiFi Technology, the Interact Collabright will allow users to set up a secure device-to-device network, without the need for network infrastructure.
The application allows multiple users to share documents and audio-visual files, chat and share screens for presentations and whiteboard applications.
Kelvin Lee, senior general manager of Greenpacket said that advances in wireless technology have made Collabright possible.
"Interact Collabright, in combination with Intel My WiFi Technology, innovates information sharing without the need for conventional network infrastructure or expensive AV equipment. With the rapid increase in data transfer, this application which makes sharing easy will be welcomed by users today. Collabright is like a big meeting room connecting people beyond four walls." he said.
Ashish Gupta, marketing manager of Intel's Mobile Wireless Group commented: "As consumers increasingly connect WiFi-enabled peripherals, laptops and devices to each other, they want the ability to easily transfer data between them. Intel is working with Greenpacket to integrate their Interact Collabright application with our award-winning Intel My WiFi Technology software and look forward to providing users with a simple way to share their screens, files and folders, chat, or even their internet connection."
Lee said that Greenpacket is in discussion with major OEMs and ODMs about licensing of Collabright, to push the technology to market.
"We believe that offering Interact Collabright as an add-on to Intel My WiFi Technology will help ODMs and OEMs better differentiate themselves from competitors by offering enhanced information and file sharing applications to their existing customers and at the same time, attract new ones," Lee added.
