Sonnet Announces Cost-Effective Thunderbolt 3 To 10 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

Sonnet Technologies has announced the Solo 10G Thunderbolt 3 Edition, the latest product in the company’s expanding line of Thunderbolt 3 to 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) adapters.

Sonnet said Solo 10G adds 10GbE network connectivity to any Mac or Windows computer with a Thunderbolt 3 port, enabling users to easily connect their computers via copper cables to high-speed network infrastructure and storage systems using the 10GbE standard.

Its performance, diminutive size, simple setup and silent operation make this Sonnet adapter ideal for use in a variety of workflows and environments. Its $199.00 price sets a new standard for 10GbE connectivity over Thunderbolt.

The Solo 10G Thunderbolt 3 adapter is equipped with an RJ45 port, enabling 10Gb connectivity via inexpensive CAT 6 or CAT 6A copper cabling at distances of up to 180 or 328 feet, respectively. The adapter connects to a single Thunderbolt 3 port on the computer and is bus-powered.

Measuring 3.1 inches wide by 4.5 inches deep by 1.1 inches tall, the Solo 10G features an aluminum enclosure that cools the circuitry and eliminates the need for a fan, which means silent operation.
