Feature Benefit
Performance, Flexibility, and Mobility
450 Mbps ready2
Support for 3 Transmit and Receive spatial streams
Minimizes the time needed to transfer large files and enables applications such as High Definition (HD) video streaming, Voice over IP (VoIP), and multi-player gaming by providing up to 450 Mbps of bandwidth2 compared to 54 Mbps for 802.11a/b/g solutions
Up to 2x greater range2
MIMO, diversity, and support for up to three antennas enable better wireless reception at the same distance when compared to 802.11a/b/g solutions
Reduces the number of “dead zones,” network re-connects, and dropped data packets; dramatically improving connectivity throughout the home and enabling more consistent coverage in the enterprise
Intel® My WiFi Technology
Wireless Personal Area Network solution for connectivity to consumer electronic devices
Enables wireless connectivity to selected WiFi-enabled consumer devices such as digital cameras, MP3 players, or game players for file sharing, file syncing, or file streaming activities
Industry-leading power consumption3
Optimized power modes (sleep states) reduce power consumption during periods of inactivity
Reduced WLAN power consumption results in longer platform battery life3 for greater utility, enjoyment, and convenience
PCIe* Mini Card and Half Mini Card form factor Support for the PCIe Mini Card form factor enables the Intel® WiFi Link 5300 to be designed into existing laptops while support for the PCIe Half Mini Card form factor enables thinner and smaller laptops
Manageability and Security
Intel® Active Management Technology
Asset management, remote system diagnostics, network protection, and network security technology

Advanced Security via 802.11
Wireless security supporting AES encryption
Ensures enterprise wireless networks are protected from unauthorized access via stronger authentication and encryption mechanisms
Intel® PROSet v12.04
Intel WLAN management software
Simplifies client deployments and allows remote management of wireless settings and profiles by IT managers
Interoperability
IEEE 802.11a/b/g/Draft-N1 compliant
Compliant to the existing IEEE 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g standards;
802.11n compliance expected when the standard is ratified
Enables interoperability with other IEEE-based Wireless Access Points and Wireless network adapters
Support for Cisco Compatible Extensions* v4
Cisco Centralized Key Management, Call Admission Control, Unscheduled Automatic Power Save Delivery (U-APSD), and Voice Metrics
Helps prevent delays in VoIP calls when roaming between Access Points; enables improved network diagnostics
Connect with Intel® Centrino® processor technology
Intel certification that focuses on interoperability between IEEE 802.11 Draft-N1 devices
Selection of Access Points with the Connect with Intel® Centrino® processor technology label ensures that both the Access Point and the Intel Centrino laptop has passed numerous interoperability tests

Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) requires the computer system to have an Intel® AMT-enabled chipset, network hardware and software, as well as connection with a power source and a corporate network connection. Setup requires configuration by the purchaser and may require scripting with the management console or further integration into existing security frameworks to enable certain functionality. It may also require modifications of implementation of new business processes.
