Increased demand for greater data transfer speeds and more bandwidth on high-performance shared storage networks has driven the explosion in demand for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) networking. Yet, most computers aren’t equipped to get you connected. If your Mac®, Windows®, or Linux® has a Thunderbolt™ 4 or Thunderbolt 3 port, you are in luck — Sonnet’s Twin10G™ 10GbE adapter is the powerfully simple and most cost-effective solution for adding blazing-fast dual-port 10GBASE-T 10GbE network connectivity to any your computer.
The Twin10G 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.
Simply powerful way to add dual RJ45 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports to your computer with Thunderbolt 4 or Thunderbolt 3 ports.
Connects to 10GbE infrastructure via inexpensive Cat 6 or Cat 6A cables at distances up to 55 or 100 meters, respectively.
Configure the adapter's settings using operating system tools.
Offers 2800 MB/s of PCIe bandwidth. Learn more about Thunderbolt 3 performance benefits over Thunderbolt 4.
One port connects to computer; second port supports daisy-chaining of up to five additional Thunderbolt peripheral devices.
Rugged aluminum enclosure is compact enough to sit on most any work surface, and quiet enough for use in noise-sensitive environments.
Keeps your computer connected in case a single cable is disconnected or one of the ports fails.
Increases throughput beyond what a single connection can sustain (Windows and Linux).
Provides up to 15W of power to connected peripherals.
Supports Apple M series Macs, and Macs with Thunderbolt 4, Thunderbolt/USB4, Thunderbolt 3, and Thunderbolt 2 (with adapter and Thunderbolt 2 cable, sold separately) ports.
Supports Windows computers with Thunderbolt 4 and Thunderbolt 3 ports.
Supports Linux computers with Thunderbolt 4 and Thunderbolt 3 ports.
How simple? Just connect the Twin10G adapter to your computer via the included 40Gbps Thunderbolt cable, download and install a driver, connect the adapter to the network switch or directly to 10GbE-enabled storage via Cat 6 or Cat 6A cables, and configure the adapter’s settings through the macOS® Network control panel, Windows Device Manager, or Linux command line (or graphical utility).
The Twin10G 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 files transfers or high I/O operations take place. 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. Windows and Linux also support link aggregation (teaming) for increased throughput!
The Twin10G features a 40Gbps Thunderbolt interface that delivers up to 2800 MB/s of PCIe bandwidth, enabling maximum 10Gb Ethernet performance.
Compatible with Apple M series Macs
see Tech Specs for details
No Thunderbolt 4 or Thunderbolt 3 port? No problem — the Twin10G is also compatible with Macs with Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt ports when used with the bi-directional Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter and a Thunderbolt cable (both sold separately).
