With Intel® Smart Connect Technology, stay current with automatic, no-wait updates to your e-mail, social networks, news, and more. It also enables your computer to send updates to the cloud if you create items while you’re away from a network connection—for example, if you write emails while on a plane.
Everything you create offline syncs automatically once your device reestablishes network connectivity, even when it’s in sleep mode. This way, everyone has your latest thoughts and you always have the freshest data right at your fingertips, ready to go whenever you are.
Intel Smart Connect Technology is available on Ultrabook™, all-in-one, and standard PCs powered by the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family.
How it works
While your computer is asleep, Intel Smart Connect Technology wakes the system at a time that you schedule and re-establishes network connectivity. This enables your applications that receive data from the Internet—such as your e-mail and social network sites—to quickly sync with the cloud service and update your system. After the content is updated, the system automatically transitions back to sleep mode.
Smart connectivity with Intel® Wireless Products
NetDetect is a feature of Intel Smart Connect Technology and Intel® Wireless Products. While the system sleeps, it searches for Wi-Fi networks around you that you have previously accessed. If no network is found, your device will remain asleep and not update again until it recognizes a known Wi-Fi network. Additionally, if there are no Wi-Fi networks at all—for example when you are on a bus, subway, or plane—the system will not wake and sync. This intelligent feature helps conserve battery power.
Sync with your e-mail and favorite online apps
Many popular e-mail and social networking applications are compatible with Intel Smart Connect Technology, including:
