One frustration people have with their PCs is the clutter caused by all of the cables and cords needed to connect to mice, keyboards, monitors, speakers, external drives, projectors and so on. In fact, The Wall Street Journal once found that the average executive wastes six weeks per year retrieving misplaced information due to messy desks and files. Although we can’t solve for all the messy files, Dell is helping to unclutter your desk through some exciting innovations.
Enter the Dell Wireless Dock. Available starting April 30th, the Dell Wireless Dock provides seamless, high-speed wireless docking to your network through Intel WiGig technology. Just place your laptop on your desk and the Wireless Dock does the rest. It’s that easy.
“Freeing the laptop from a tangle of wires has been a dream for years, but only recently have all the pieces fallen into place,” PC World senior editor Mark Hachman recently wrote,
The cables and large docking station may be gone, but your productivity certainly is not. The Wireless Dock allows you to work more efficiently by powering up to two external displays (VGA, HDMI and mDP), keyboard, mouse, audio and other peripherals. The dock is equipped with two USB ports in front and three in the back to provide you the flexibility to work with as many devices as you need to manage your busy work flow.
The Dell Wireless Dock can also simplify the needs of workers who do not have a permanent desk at the office by allowing reliable connectivity for any WiGig-capable PC to peripheral devices, ideal for those who office in modern environments such as hotel workspaces. In addition, the dock’s front audio in/out port allows for voice over IP capability when collaborating on Skype, Lync and other communications tools.
The Dell Wireless Dock enables one laptop at a time to communicate wirelessly at multi-gigabit speeds – higher speeds than some of the fastest Wi-Fi networks. In addition, the dock protects files with data encryption and strong authentication protocols, IEEE802.11 and current WLAN technologies.
The new Dell wireless docking solution is designed for laptops, Ultrabooks™, and 2 in 1 devices with 5th generation Intel Core™ vPro™ processors enabled with Intel® Tri-Band Wireless-AC 17256. The Dell Wireless Dock is compatible with the Dell Latitude 7000 Series and Latitude 5000 Series with an optional installed Intel® Tri-Band Wireless-AC 17256 available only at the time of purchase. More information about the Dell Wireless Dock can be found on Dell.com.
The Dell Wireless Dock is another example of how we help ensure our technology is easy to use and always connected so our customers can spend their valuable time being productive rather than messing with the tools needed to do the work. Continued innovation in wireless technologies is our commitment to deliver products that improve productivity, efficiency and help our customers’ businesses grow.
