Connectivity is unlikely to have been a major concern for most business leaders in recent years. Due to the pandemic-induced shift to remote work, which has seen staff leave company headquarters for home offices, employees are connected to high-speed home Wi-Fi® networks – the same networks they use to stream Netflix, too. play online games and connect with friends and family.
However, as the world begins to return to normal, many organizations are realizing the importance of always-on connectivity, especially as employees return to the daily commute and re-enter the world of corporate events. Business travel is also starting to make a comeback, meaning employees often rely on Wi-Fi in hotels and poor connectivity options for conference centers.
While most of your employees have a smartphone with 4G or 5G connectivity, which allows them to catch up on emails and do some light work-related tasks, that is often not enough. For tasks that require full PC power, a 4G equipped laptop could be the answer your business is looking for. Not only does this make performing work tasks on the go less stressful for your out-of-office employees, but it’s also much more secure than connecting to public Wi-Fi networks – and often much faster too.
They are also a great option for your non-traveling employees. As companies embrace a new hybrid way of working where employees can divide their time between their home, office and countless other locations, a 4G laptop enables your employees to get to work wherever they are, whether it’s in the garden, at the park or in a local coffee shop.
This also prevents your employees from relying on often unreliable Wi-Fi hotspots, which also tend to quickly drain smartphone batteries and unknowingly eat up data plans, which can be costly for your business.
While almost every notebook available today has a built-in Wi-Fi card, unfortunately not many laptops offer an included 4G card. However, AMD’s Ryzen™ 6000 PRO processors make it easier than ever to insure your employees
are connected everywhere and the chips are now available in a number of laptops with a built-in 4G modem.
For example, the Lenovo ThinkPad T14 is a Ryzen™ 6000 PRO powered business laptop that not only supports the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard, but also offers optional support for 4G LTE and sub-6 5G via eSIM for business users who are always on the go and need constant access to a reliable connection. The HP EliteBook 805 is another AMD Ryzen™ 6000 PRO laptop that ticks all the boxes when it comes to business connectivity; it offers gigabit-class 4G LTE powered by 4×4 antennas, meaning your employees can work from virtually anywhere in the world.
Plus, with an AMD Ryzen™ 6000 PRO processor-based laptop with 4G connectivity, you can rest assured that your employees have all the tools and power they need to get the job done. Based on AMD’s “Zen 3+” architecture, Ryzen™ 6000 Series mobile CPUs can deliver up to 1.3X faster performance than the previous generation, and can deliver up to 26 hours of battery life on a premium business laptop, so your employees do not need to be tethered to an electrical outlet.
The CPUs also offer much more than support for 4G LTE networks in the connectivity department. AMD Ryzen™ 6000 PRO processors deliver next-generation multi-gigabit speeds with support for Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.0 and data transfer rates of 40 GB per second via USB 4.0.
Despite these connectivity credentials, AMD Ryzen™ 6000 PRO CPUs can be found in some of the lightest, thinnest and most portable business laptops around – perfect for your employees re-embracing the world of business travel.
