Cordcutters Rejoice — Intel® Wireless Docking Is Here


Let’s face it — cords aren’t cute. Every time you connect your laptop or 2-in-1 to your external display you spend precious time fumbling around with clumsy cords or rummaging around in a bin full of random adapters looking for one that will help pair your device to another. Displays, printers, speakers, storage — until now, most of these required you to plug some kind of cord or adapter into your device in order to pair with them. Not anymore.

Unleash WiGig Docking Now

Intel® Wireless Docking works by pairing a WiGig-enabled 2-in-1, laptop, or other mobile device with a WiGig docking station connected to peripherals such as HD displays and external hard drives.

The technology automatically pairs your WiGig-enabled device with your WiGig dock and peripherals based on your proximity to the dock. As soon as you arrive at your desk your device is wirelessly paired with all of your devices, and you’re up and running without messing with cords.

Intel® Wireless Gigabit docking supports up to two full HD displays and provides multi-Gbps connectivity for any USB 3.0 device such as storage or HD camera that is WiGig-enabled or connected to a wireless gigabit docking station. With WiGig, you can stream visually lossless, robust HD video and audio to your peripherals with low latency at extremely high data transfer rates.

How It Works

A truly wire-free computing experience starts with WiGig. Devices featuring Intel® Tri-Band Wireless-AC 17265 offer a complete wireless experience: fast 802.11ac (Wi-Fi) and 802.11ad (WiGig). Any laptop, tablet, or 2-in-1 featuring this technology is already set up to seamlessly pair with a dock featuring an Intel® Wireless Gigabit Sink. Plug your existing peripherals into the WiGig dock once and never fuss with awkward display or USB connections to your laptop or 2-in-1 again.
