Super-fast 10GBASE-T Connectivity Now at a Breakthrough Price for Thunderbolt 2
Video content creation and output has moved on from 1080p HD to 4K and beyond, ushering in 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) as the new networking standard for post-production shared storage workgroups and other bandwidth-intensive workflows. On the infrastructure side, low-priced 10GbE switches with RJ45 (copper) have cut the cost of set up, resulting in very rapid adoption. The problem is, most computers aren’t equipped to get you connected. For computers with a Thunderbolt™ 2 port, there is now an equally affordable 10GbE adapter—Sonnet’s Solo10G™ (Thunderbolt 2 Edition), a powerfully simple solution for adding 10GBASE-T 10GbE network connectivity to Mac® and Windows®(1) or Linux® computers with Thunderbolt 2 ports.

Equipped with a single RJ45 socket, the Solo10G adapter connects to 10GbE infrastructure via inexpensive Cat 6 or Cat 6A copper cabling at distances up to 55 or 100 meters, respectively. Oh, and it’s the lowest-priced Thunderbolt 2 10GbE adapter available.
