Sonnet RoHS Echo Express SEL 10GbE - 10 Gigabit Ethernet Thunderbolt 2 Adapter with Fibre SFP+ (Green Friendly)
Lightning Fast 10GbE Over Thunderbolt
Do you need an uncomplicated way to connect a Thunderbolt technology-enabled Mac to a high speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) network? With increasing demands for greater data transfer speeds and more bandwidth over shared networks, and with specialized applications as HD video editing using high-performance shared storage systems, 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) use has skyrocketed. This high-speed wired networking standard offers ten times the performance of Gigabit Ethernet, the common wired network connection included with most computers today. Sonnet's Echo Express SEL 10GbE Thunderbolt 2-to-10GbE adapter provides you a powerfully simple way to add lightning fast 10 Gigabit Ethernet network connectivity to any desktop or notebook Mac with Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt ports.
Small. Light. Quiet.
Measuring a scant 4" wide by 8.4" long by 2.8" tall, the Echo Express SEL 10GbE bundles Sonnet's Echo Express SEL Thunderbolt 2 Expansion Chassis with a Presto™ 10GbE PCIe card and a 1-port Fibre SFP+ transceiver, providing you a near plug-and-play solution for adding 10GbE connectivity. A temperature-controlled, variable-speed fan keeps the adapter running cool and whisper-quiet. In addition, Thunderbolt 2 ports on the back panel of the chassis support daisy chaining of up to six devices to a single port on the host computer.
This adapter enables you to connect your computer to high-speed infrastructure and storage without stepping down in speed. Setup is simple—connect the Echo Express SEL 10GbE to the host computer via the included Thunderbolt cable and to the switch or 10GbE port via fiber optic cable (sold separately), plug in the included power supply, and then configure the setup through the OS X® Network control panel.
This Sonnet solution is perfect for high-performance computing where low latency, high bandwidth, and low CPU overhead are required. Its increased throughput performance and low host-CPU utilization are achieved with stateless offloads, allowing your computer to perform better while large files transfers or high I/O operations take place.
Thunderbolt Cable and Cable Lock Included
Sonnet includes a Thunderbolt cable and lock that secures Thunderbolt connectors(1) plugged into the Echo chassis. It is easy to install and prevents accidental cable disconnections.
