Bangalore, Mar 22 (UNI) Intel Technology India Pvt Ltd today announced that it will be the chief technology consultant and programme management consultant for the 'Unwired Pune' project, taken up by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC).

Intel India, in a release here, said it would by 2007 rpt 2007 deliver an easy, seamless internet connectivity solution to the entire 400 sq km of Pune city, covering business and academic institutions, besides citizens.

PMC would be providing basic IT infrastructure such as stable internet connectivity to its citizens just as it was providing basic facilities like sanitation, sewage, roads and street lights. This would enhance the overall outlook of the population, which could exploit the vast information pool and advantages of internet. ''This will surely be a huge differentiator for Pune and will enhance the status of moving Pune towards becoming the IT capital of the country,'' PMC Commissioner Dr Nitin Kareer said.

Intel had suggested deploying WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) and Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) technologies to empower Pune with high speed wireless internet, the release said.

On the technical front, Intel was responsible for creating an extensible, high performance technical architecture and detailed design that would best meet PMC's requirements. Intel would also provide information and educate PMC in the state-of-the-art wireless technologies by conducting workshops and facilitated training programmes. Further, Intel would set up an industry standard end-to-end Project Management methodology to ensure quality deployment of the overall project on time and on/under budget, the release said.
