Mustek has an Intel award for being the number one volume integrator of
Intel Motherboards in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region for
the second quarter of 2008.
David Kan, CEO of Mustek, says: "As a local OEM building PCs locally, Mustek
is able to bring the latest technology to the local market in a more timely
manner than non-local vendors importing finished systems from Asia. Building
PCs locally with the latest components can give locally assembled products a
three month competitive advantage with the latest technology."
Although Mustek won the award based on total board volume, 100% of the
boards were enabled with Intel vPro technology. Designed as a business
platform, targeting corporate and SMB customers, Intel vPro technology
offers built-in manageability, efficiency and proactive security
Mustek brings products to market timeously by focusing on Intel's latest
product development. For example in the third quarter 2007, Intel launched
the Intel Q35 Express Chipset supporting Intel Core2 processors with vPro
technology. Mustek was one of the first customers worldwide to begin
integrating this technology with the Mecer Proficient range of corporate PC
SKU's. In third quarter, 2008 Intel vPro technology will be upgraded with
the launch of the Intel Q45 Express Chipset, as with the previous launch
Mustek will be one of the first companies to have product available locally
Intel vPro technology is part of the Intel® Stable Image Platform Program
(Intel® SIPP) which offers corporate clients platform stability for at least
15 months. Mustek's extensive regional footprint and dealer network allows
the local integrator to offer quick turnaround times and back-up service on
all of Intel's latest products.
Intel's tick-tock strategy of redesigning the micro-architecture one year
and shrinking it the next year ensures that there is a constant new release
of products. Local integrators like Mustek can adapt quickly to adopt new
technologies within the local market and are on track to release Intel's
45nm processors later this year.
