What’s the key to getting ahead of your competitors? Integrating new technology into your infrastructure. You want your business to be more competitive in 2018, and thankfully hundreds of new technologies were unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
But, when there are so many new technologies, how do you find which ones serve your needs best? Well, there’s no need to scroll through endless CES product reviews because we’ve already determined the top five that will keep you competitive in 2018:
Tablets are the key to working on the go, but it’s not every day that you find one with functionality as unwavering as your work ethic. The Lenovo Miix 630, weighing in at less than three pounds, is designed to be used as much as a smartphone with a built-in Snapdragon 835 chipset. The best part? The battery lasts for up to 20 hours. Your days of frantically searching for an outlet will be long gone when the tablet is released this spring!
Carrying your laptop from meeting to meeting can be a hassle, but when you have the world’s thinnest laptop, you can walk in confidently and effortlessly. The Swift 7 measures in at just 0.39 inches thick and weighs 2.48 pounds, all while avoiding compromised usability. Acer will release their revolutionary laptop this spring, with an HD touch display, an Intel Core i7 processor and 4G-LTE connectivity.
Modems, routers, speakers – we clutter our lives with devices that make important tasks easier. The Asus Lyra Voice brings multitasking to a whole new level, tripling as a tri-band AC2200 mesh Wi-Fi router, a speaker with rich and powerful sound and Amazon’s Alexa as a digital assistant. With Alexa on board, you can ask the Lyra Voice questions, play music and control your smart home devices. Declutter your office with the Lyra Voice and watch your productivity skyrocket!
Say goodbye to your old cameras and infrared sensors and plug Aura – the most popular smart home security system this year – into your wall to monitor the WiFi radio waves that fill your office or home. When these patterns are interrupted, Aura knows that motion is occurring and can notify you on your smartphone or set off other alarms.
It happens to the best of us. We forget to charge our smartphones the night before a busy day full of important meetings and don’t realize it until we get into the office the next day. Wi-Charge, this year’s winner of the Best of Innovation Award, allows you to charge your phone just by being in the room. Wi-Charge is a wireless power supply for smartphones, wireless webcams and wireless audios, so your smartphone will never die during an important call again.
All of these products sound great, but how do you determine which new technologies should be part of your infrastructure? Give NST a call, and we’ll pinpoint the vulnerabilities in your system to help you better understand your strengths and weaknesses and leave your competitors behind this year, once and for all.
