Sony NW-ZX2 Hi-Res Walkman – Wi-Fi Strength

While the term Walkman may make you think of a dated technology, the newest addition to the Sony Walkman lineup not only can play nearly any audio format, it comes fully equipped with Wi-Fi capability, representing yet another form of technology set to invade the corporate arena. Wireless audio is a trend that should have network administrators concerned as these aren't the simple speakers of yesterday, but powerful devices capable of severely draining the Wi-Fi strength within the organization.

Held in Las Vegas annually, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) stands as a symbol of what is possible in technology. CES has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for more than 40 years — a global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace. And 2015's show was no exception.

Networked homes, more capable wearable devices, wireless entertainment and even your own personal drones were at the head of the list for 2015. While the tech geek is busting at the seams with anticipation, the network administrator is scared to death. All of this technology results in bandwidth hoarding, security vulnerabilities and compliance concerns for IT departments.

In this slideshow, Ipswitch, a software and service provider, explores the technologies emerging from CES with the most potential to disrupt the business and network. If you're a network administrator, these six trends should have you concerned.
