Laplink Software and Intel Corp. Announced New Device Connectivity Technology

The companies team up to create a technology that leverages Intel’s My WiFi Technology and Laplink’s synchronization software.

Synchronization software developer Laplink Software Inc. announced this week an innovation created in partnership with chipmaker Intel Corp. The innovation, a new device connectivity technology, aims to help SMBs and other businesses to connect devices and share files from any location.

Laplink Software and Intel Corp. Announced New Device Connectivity TechnologyThe technology leverages Intel’s My WiFi Technology, which is based on industry standard Wi-Fi Direct, and Laplink’s synchronization software, Laplink Sync.

Intel My WiFi Technology enables a personal area network to accommodate devices to connect without the need of an access point or Internet connectivity. It enables users to sync and share data with multiple devices in a peer-to-peer relationship within that personal area network.

The combination of Intel and Laplink technology creates simplified sync solution between PCs, smartphones, and tablets that goes beyond the traditional network.† No longer will SMBs be required to have all of their devices connected to the same network or even have an Internet connection.

In order to integrate Intel’s technology, Laplink has developed a new sync product branded simply Laplink Sync. It goes beyond Laplink’s traditional PC platform, extending to Mac, Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. Laplink Sync includes Laplink’s SpeedSync and SmartXchange technologies.

“Laplink Sync is fast, safe and secure,” explains Laplink CEO Thomas Koll. “It doesn’t confine users to only using external storage in the cloud or independent sync folders on the PC. Instead, users will have direct control over what is synced without files being duplicated in other locations.”

“Users no longer have to worry about Internet access or being on the same network to connect devices, share files, and synchronize data,” says Koll adds. “Laplink has always been a leader in file transfer and synchronization technology and this new collaboration is a continuation and extension of that leadership. Intel’s technology enables some very exciting user scenarios and we are pleased to partner with them on this project.”

From Intel’s perspective, the collaboration will enable “new and compelling ways” for SMBs to use and connect devices. According to Alex Quach, Intel’s director of Intel wireless product marketing, this will drive “more continuity between multiple devices and platforms than ever before.”

Laplink Sync will be released in the first half of 2012. A future release will include Cloud Sync.
