Intel signs IOT pact with Taiwan wireless carrier

Development will focus on smart homes, fleet management and energy savings.


Intel has joined forces with Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan’s largest wireless carrier, to develop technology related to the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and software defined networking (SDN).

According to Focus Taiwan, the companies signed a memorandum of understanding at a press conference that will see them explore SDN in efforts to optimise energy use at cloud data centres, while IoT technology would be used to develop smart homes, fleet management and energy savings.

Gordon G. Graylish, Intel’s VP of sales and marketing group and general manager of enterprise solution sales, said: "Intel is delighted to expand collaboration spanning IoT, cloud and software-defined network with Chunghwa Telecom to realise the vision of (a) ‘Connected Society’ in Taiwan.

"We also look forward to supporting Taiwan becoming a global developer and manufacturer of IoT, cloud computing hardware as well as services, and software-defined (networks)."

The partnership comes after both companies collaborated on cloud computing collaboration back in 2010 when Chunghwa Telecom became a part of the Open Data Center Alliance.

The partnership is also Intel’s fifth IoT project worldwide and marks its first one in Asia with a telecom service provider.
