Lightning-Fast 10GbE Over Thunderbolt 2
Do you need a simple and cost-effective way to connect your computer to a high-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) network? By offering ten times the performance of Gigabit Ethernet and more bandwidth over shared networks, and by supporting specialized applications such as using high-performance shared storage systems for editing HD video, it’s no wonder that 10 Gigabit Ethernet use has skyrocketed—the problem is that the vast majority of computers don’t include a native connection. Sonnet’s Twin 10G SFP+ 10GbE adapter is the powerfully simple solution for you to add lightning fast 10 Gigabit Ethernet network connectivity to any Mac® with Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt ports, or any Windows® PC with a Thunderbolt 2 port.

Small. Light. Quiet.
Measuring a scant 4 inches wide by 8.25 inches long by 2.75 inches tall, the Twin 10G SFP+ 10GbE adapter is small enough to sit on most any work surface, but large enough to support adequate airflow inside the case and enable its temperature-controlled, variable-speed fan to keep the adapter running cool and whisper-quiet, and reliably at all times. Constructed of rugged and lightweight aluminum, the outer shell securely protects the inner circuitry.

Simple Setup, Smart Performance
Setup is easy—connect the Twin 10G SFP+ 10GbE adapter to the host computer via the included Thunderbolt cable, download and install a driver, connect the adapter to the switch or device’s 10GbE ports via LC fiber optic cables (SFP+ transceivers and fiber optic cables sold separately), or SFP+ direct-attach copper cables (sold separately), and then configure the adapter through the OS X® Network control panel or Windows Device Manager. The second Thunderbolt 2 port supports daisy chaining, supporting the connection of up to six devices to a single port on the host computer.

Bandwidth & CPU UsageThis Sonnet adapter’s increased throughput performance and low host-CPU utilization are achieved with functions such as support for flow control support, 64-bit address support for systems using more than 4GB of physical memory; and stateless offloads such as TCP, UDP and IPv4 checksum offloading, enabling your computer to perform better while large files transfers or high I/O operations take place. With its dual ports, the Sonnet adapter supports transparent failover to keep your computer connected in case a single cable is disconnected or one of the ports fails, and it also supports link aggregation(1) for increased throughput!

Flexibility of Short-Range or Long-Range SFP+ Transceivers
Sonnet offers two SFP+ transceiver options (sold separately)—a short-range module (up to 300 meters, part number G10E-SFP-SR), and a long-range module (up to 10 kilometers, part number G10E-SFP-LR)—that connect the Twin 10G SFP+ via LC fiber optical cable (sold separately) to a network switch or storage. Alternatively, you can use cost-effective direct-attach Twinax copper cables up to 10 meters long (sold separately).

  • Adds High-Performance 10GbE SFP+ Connectivity—Powerfully simple way to add two 10GbE SFP+ connections to your Mac with Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt ports, or Windows PC with a Thunderbolt 2 port
  • Connection Flexibility—Choose two short-range or two long-range SFP+ transceivers plus LC fiber optical cables (all sold separately), or two SFP+ direct-attach Twinax copper cables (sold separately) to connect the Twin 10G SFP+ 10GbE adapter to your network or storage
