Twin 10G

DESCRIPTION:

Sonnet Twin 10G Thunderbolt 2 to Dual-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.

Lightning Fast 10GBase-T Connectivity Over Thunderbolt
With increasing demands for greater data transfer speeds and more bandwidth over shared networks, and with specialized applications such as HD video editing using high-performance shared storage systems, the deployment of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) networking has skyrocketed. This high-speed wired networking standard offers ten times the performance of Gigabit Ethernet, the most common wired network connection included with most computers today, and yet, most computers aren't equipped to get you connected. If you have a computer with a Thunderbolt port (Thunderbolt 2 port required for Windows compatibility), Sonnet has a simple solution—the Twin 10G. This Thunderbolt-certified for Mac® and Windows, 10GBase-T adapter is a powerful and cost-effective way to add 10GbE connectivity to your setup.

The Twin 10G is equipped with two RJ45 and two Thunderbolt 2 ports. Using RJ45 connectors, the Twin 10G is able to connect to 10 Gigabit infrastructure via inexpensive CAT-6 or CAT-6A copper cabling at distances up to 55 or 100 meters, respectively. Through one of its two Thunderbolt 2 ports, the Twin 10G connects to your computer through an included Thunderbolt cable; the second Thunderbolt port supports daisy chaining up to six devices to a single port on the host computer.

Sleek, Quiet, and Compact
The Twin 10G is a striking example of form following function—this adapter's attractive and rugged aluminium housing is engineered to effectively dissipate heat. Together with a temperature-tuned, ultra-quiet fan to quietly cool the components inside, this design enables the Twin 10G to be used comfortably in noise-sensitive environments. Measuring just 4.9" wide x 6.3" long x 2.7" high, the Twin 10G takes up little space.
