Leverage the power of your PC's Thunderbolt 3 port to add 10 GbE connectivity to your Windows or Mac computer using the Solo 10G Thunderbolt 3 to 10 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter from Sonnet. This adapter comes equipped with a single Thunderbolt 3 connector and a single RJ45 network port. Additionally, it derives its power directly from the Thunderbolt 3 port, eliminating the need for a power adapter.

Inside this adapter, you will find a variety of features designed to provide a seamless network connection, including TCP, UDP, and IPv4 checksum offloading, and support for the energy-efficient Ethernet standard 802.3az, which reduces the strain placed on your computer's power supply. When finished, you can unplug this Ethernet adapter and take it with you on the go thanks to its small form factor and rugged aluminum case for enhanced durability.

 

Fast 10GBase-T Connectivity

The Thunderbolt to 10Gb Ethernet adapter - Sonnet's Solo 10G Thunderbolt 3 Edition adapter - is a powerfully simple solution for adding fast 10GBase-T 10 GbE network connectivity to any Mac or Windows computer with Thunderbolt 3 ports.

 

Enhanced Performance

The Solo 10G adapter is equipped with a single RJ45 socket, enabling it to connect to 10 GbE infrastructure via inexpensive Cat 6 or Cat 6A copper cabling at distances up to 180' or 328', respectively.

 

NBase-T Support for Faster Transfers Across Existing Cabling

Does your facility have Cat 5e wiring installed already? You can still get a great performance gain - from 250 to 500 percent over Gigabit Ethernet speed - without rewiring. The Solo 10G adapter supports the NBase-T industry-standard of 2.5/5 Gb link speeds, which enables greater than Gigabit Ethernet speeds over Cat 5e (or better) cabling when used with an NBase-T compatible (multi-Gigabit) switch or router. This capability allows you to deploy the same adapter across an organization for users supported by different Ethernet cabling infrastructures.

 

Advanced Features, Intelligent Operation

The Solo 10G Thunderbolt 3 Edition adapter attains its high throughput performance and low host-CPU utilization through functions such as flow control, 64-bit address support for systems using more than 4GB of physical memory; and stateless offloads such as TCP, UDP, and IPv4 checksum offloading. These processes enable your computer to perform better while large file transfers or high I/O operations take place. This Sonnet adapter supports Energy-Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az), which reduces the adapter's power demands on your computer.

 

Replaceable Captive Cable

Through the use of a captive cable, the Solo 10G adapter's Thunderbolt connector remains firmly connected to it at all times. Should the cable ever break, it can easily be replaced with an approved replacement cable available from Sonnet or a Sonnet-authorized reseller.

 

Safe and Secure

As a networked conduit into your computer, the Sonnet Solo 10G was designed with essential security features. Incorporating encryption in hardware, the Sonnet adapter is protected against malicious modification of its firmware. Any unauthorized attempt at firmware modification to facilitate surreptitious computer access would render the adapter inoperable. This secure design prevents the Solo 10G adapter firmware from being reprogrammed except by a manufacturer's update using a secure encryption key.

 

AVB Support

Audio Video Bridging (IEEE 802.1Qav, AVB) support makes the adapter perfect for use in pro audio and video applications where synchronization of data streams is critical.

 

Pocketable, Bus-Powered, and Silent

Unlike the vast majority of 10GbE adapters, the Solo 10G is pocketable - measuring a mere 3.1 inches wide by 4.5 inches deep by 1.1 inches tall - and it's bus-powered to enable truly portable use without a power adapter. Using the latest technologies and wrapping them in a rugged aluminum case, Sonnet designed a cool-running adapter that doesn't need a fan, allowing silent and energy-efficient operation.

 

Simple Setup

Connect the Solo 10G adapter to your computer, connect the adapter to the network switch or directly to 10GbE-enabled storage, and configure the adapter's settings through the Mac OS Network control panel or Windows Device Manager.
