The way we work and collaborate is constantly evolving, and the Internet has made it easier than ever to work with colleagues from around the world in real-time thanks to applications such as Slack and Microsoft Teams. In addition to this, creating a powerful home office environment thanks to the latest advancements in USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 technology has never been easier.
Connect Everything with a Single Cable!
A dock can bring your whole home office together with a single cable and be the central hub for all of your devices.
CalDigit’s docking solutions allows home office users to add up to two monitors to increase their productivity.
A dock will also connect to your home Internet via Ethernet for a more stable connection should you require to access your company’s cloud storage, or download data intensive files.
Need to connect to a conference call? Add a webcam, microphone, and speakers.
Connecting external storage to today’s streamlined USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 laptops can be tricky if you don’t have a USB-C external drive. Using a dock will allow you to connect all your standard USB-A external storage devices to access your files anytime. If you’re working off an ultra fast USB-C SSD you can take advantage of the dock’s Thunderbolt 3 or 10Gb/s USB-C ports for the ultimate performance.
