Belkin Docks Alleviate Major Pain Points of Co-Working

AUSTIN, Texas – September 23, 2019Belkin, the connected things division within newly merged Belkin International and Foxconn Interconnect Technology (FIT) entity, today announces the U.S. debut of its Thunderbolt 3™ Pro Dock and the Thunderbolt 3™ Plus Dock at SpiceWorld 2019, located at Booth 2 at the Austin Convention Center.

Both of the Belkin Thunderbolt 3™ docks come to market at a time where both corporate offices and coworking spaces are embracing the idea of “desk hoteling.” These unassigned, operating-system agnostic desks are based on the premise that employees should be able to work wherever and whenever they want without having their productivity interrupted.

Both are compatible with USB-C and Thunderbolt 3™ devices, but the Pro Dock offers more ports than the Plus, and is intended for a more demanding work environment.

“IT professionals are always searching for helpful tools to keep in the office. With evolving workplace office trends, such as coworking venues and offices with distributed teams, having flexible and affordable solutions is a priorty. Each of these Belkin Thunderbolt 3™ Docks is a perfect solution for anyone in IT to have on hand,” said John Roepke, Director of Product Management, Belkin.

According to this recent article which pulled from a number of different surveys on work space trends:

  • In 2018, the number of coworking spaces in the U.S. rose 16 percent
  • In 2018, flexible workspaces accounted for more than two-thirds of the U.S. office market occupancy gains
