Wi-Fi Availability: Fitbit Blaze

With the highly anticipated launch of the Apple Watch, the smartwatch phenomenon will continue to be a major trend in 2016, as a number of new watches are introduced to the market. The Fitbit Blaze was unveiled at CES and is considered to be Apple Watch's main competitor. In addition to being a fitness tracker, the Fitbit Blaze allows users to take calls, check text messages and even receive calendar invites. With wearable and fitness technology becoming even more prevalent in the workplace and adding traffic to the already jam-packed list of devices connecting to Wi-Fi, IT teams need to be aware of the impact these devices will have on Wi-Fi availability.

Tech's biggest event, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), garners more than 200,000 attendees and never has a lack of innovation or head-scratching technology. From an entire section devoted to virtual reality to a futuristic Batmobile model, attendees collectively navigate through 3,800 exhibitors and 2.5 million square feet of space to experience the most advanced technologies. Of course, 2016's show had no shortage of wearable tech, tablets and hybrid devices on display.

With all these new products being introduced to company networks, the opportunity for vulnerabilities and security and compliance complications continues to escalate for IT teams. In 2016, IT teams can expect to deal with the onslaught of wearable devices, ensuring continuous infrastructure and deploying new technologies. The products introduced at CES will only add to the complexity for IT teams' never-ending efforts to manage and keep up with the hot tech trends.

In this slideshow, Ipswitch highlights six of the technologies from CES that are most likely to disrupt your company network.
