—Blazing-Fast 10GBASE-T Connectivity Over Thunderbolt™ 3 for Mac® and Windows®—
Increased demand for greater data transfer speeds and more bandwidth over shared networks, plus the need for HD video editing support on high-performance shared storage systems has driven the explosion in demand for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) networking—offering ten times the performance of Gigabit Ethernet, the most common wired network connection today. It’s no wonder. And yet, most computers aren’t equipped to get you connected. If your computer has a Thunderbolt 3 port, you are in luck—Sonnet’s Twin10G™ Thunderbolt 3 Edition dual-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter is the powerfully simple and cost effective solution for adding blazing-fast 10GBASE-T (copper) 10GbE network connectivity to any Mac or Windows computer with Thunderbolt 3 ports.

The Twin10G Thunderbolt 3 Edition adapter is equipped with two RJ45 ports, enabling it to connect to 10GbE infrastructure via inexpensive CAT 6 or CAT 6A copper cabling at distances up to 55 or 100 meters, respectively. This Sonnet adapter’s dual 10GbE connections support transparent failover to keep your computer connected in case a single cable is disconnected or one of the ports fails, and also support link aggregation for increased throughput!
