Intel is planning to add enhanced connectivity features to its Ultrabooks and tablets that would give its users automatic access to free Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide. Recently, Intel and Devicescape has completed a deal to implement this feature on ultrabooks and tablets. By using Devicescape’s Wi-Fi management tool Intel users will be able to automatically connect their Ultrabooks or tablets to open Wi-Fi hotspots. The technique, dubbed as Intel’s Smart Connect Technology, will support automatic update of e-mail, Facebook, Twitter and other apps by using Devicescape’s Curated Virtual Network (CVN), even when the device is in sleep mode.

By adding Devicescape’s Wi-Fi management tool software to Intel’s standard Smart Connect Manager, Intel’s manufacturer partners can ship their lightweight Ultrabooks and tablets with a public wireless connection already active.

“It’s almost like using a cell phone in that you don’t have to scan for networks, start up a web browser or configure your network setting every time you want to connect to the network,” says David Fraser, CEO of Devicescape. The CVN is able to automatically connect to Wi-Fi hotspots that requires login.

Devicescape’s CVN of Wi-Fi hotspots has at coffee shops, libraries, airports, and other public places, which is totaling nearly 7 million locations. The company is working to extend their network. They are adding around 30,000 Wi-Fi locations every day.

David Fraser also said “Getting the software out on more laptops will open up their network to greater discovery and more access points, and the more access points they know of the more good access points they’ll have.”
