Are you looking for the most economical dual-port approach to connecting to a high-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) fiber network using the Thunderbolt™ 4 or Thunderbolt 3 port on your Mac®, Windows®, or Linux® computer? You’ll need an adapter. Sonnet’s Twin10G™ SFP+ adapter is the powerfully simple solution for adding blazing-fast dual-port 10GbE optical network connectivity to your computer.
To connect easily to your 10GbE optical network, Sonnet’s Twin10G SFP+ now includes two short-range multi-mode fibre 10GBASE-SR SFP+ transceivers (up to 300 meters), part number G10E-SFP-SR, at no extra cost.
Sonnet also offers two additional SFP+ transceiver options (sold separately) – a long-range single-mode fiber module (up to 10 kilometers), part number G10E-SFP-LR; and a 10GBASE-T copper module (up to 30 meters using Cat 6A cables), part number G10E-SFP-T. Alternatively, you can use cost-effective direct-attach Twinax copper cables up to 10 meters long (sold separately).
Equipped with two SFP+ transceivers, the Twin10G SFP+ adapter supports ten times the performance of Gigabit Ethernet and more bandwidth over shared networks.
Simply powerful way to add dual 10GbE SFP+ connections to your computer with Thunderbolt 4 or Thunderbolt 3 ports.
High-performance adapter includes two 10GBASE-SR SFP+ transceivers. Additional SFP+ transceiver choices available (sold separately).
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.
Adapter is rugged and small 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.
Simply connect the Twin10G SFP+ adapter to your computer via the included 40Gbps Thunderbolt cable, download and install a driver, install SFP+ module(s) (sold separately), connect the adapter to the network switch or directly to 10GbE-enabled storage, and configure the adapter’s settings through the macOS® Network control panel, Windows Device Manager, or Linux command line (or graphical utility).
The Twin10G SFP+ adapter’s high throughput performance and low host-CPU utilization are attained 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 operations 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 fail. Windows and Linux also support link aggregation (teaming) for increased throughput!
The Twin10G SFP+ 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 SFP+ 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).
