Promise of intelligent networks

Intel researchers are working on ways to make wireless networks organize themselves and manage data traffic levels without any human intervention.

They are working with mesh network systems that can determine the best way to link all the devices they are in contact with, and find the ideal route for the data the devices are swapping.

“There are going to be tens of millions of computers out there with these capabilities and it’s going to change the world,” says Mike Witteman, head of Intel’s network architecture lab.
