Solo10G SFP+ (Thunderbolt 3 Edition)
10 Gigabit Ethernet Thunderbolt 3 Adapter with Short-range SFP+ Transceiver
Blazing-fast 10GBASE-SR Connectivity
Most post-production shared storage workgroups and other bandwidth-intensive workflows have been rapidly transitioning to 10Gb Ethernet as the new data transfer standard. For many, the 10Gb Ethernet network infrastructure of choice is optical (SFP+) 10Gb Ethernet. For these workgroups, there is now an affordable 10GbE interface for your Mac® or Windows®(1) computer with Thunderbolt™ 3 ports—Sonnet’s Solo10G™ SFP+ (Thunderbolt 3 Edition) adapter, a powerfully simple solution for adding blazing-fast fiber optic 10GbE network connectivity.
Connect to 10GbE Infrastructure
The Solo10G SFP+ (Thunderbolt 3 Edition) adapter includes a 10GBASE-SR (short-range) SFP+ transceiver (the most commonly-used optical transceiver), enabling you to connect your computer to 10GbE infrastructure via LC optical cable (optical cables sold separately) at distances up to 300 meters.
Adds 10GbE Connectivity
Powerfully simple way to add high-performance 10GbE connectivity via optical cable.
SFP+ Transceiver Included
Low-cost adapter includes 10GBASE-SR (short-range) SFP+ transceiver; supports connection up to 300 meters to 10GbE infrastructure via LC multi-mode fiber optic cable (sold separately).
40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 Interface
Connects to any Thunderbolt 3 computer port, or at the end of a Thunderbolt 3 device daisy chain.
Energy-efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) support reduces the adapter’s power demands on your computer.
Configure the adapter’s settings using operating system tools.
Small and Silent
Adapter is pocketable and uses no fan, perfect for use in noise-sensitive environments.
Bus-Powered, Energy Efficient
Powered through its Thunderbolt connection, the Solo10G requires no power adapter.
Aluminum enclosure withstands heavy use.
Connect Your Computer to the Switch’s or Device’s 10GbE Port Via an LC Multi-Mode Optical Cable
Advanced Features, Intelligent Operation
The Solo10G SFP+ (Thunderbolt 3 Edition) 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 also supports the Energy-Efficient Ethernet standard (IEEE 802.3az), which reduces the adapter’s power demands on your computer.
Additional SFP+ Transceiver Choices
Sonnet includes a short-range multi-mode fiber SFP+ module (up to 300 meters), part number G10E-SFP-SR, with the Solo10G adapter. Sonnet also offers a long-range single-mode fiber module (up to 10 kilometers), part number G10E-SFP-LR (sold separately); and a 10GBASE-T copper module (up to 30 meters using Cat 6A cables), part number G10E-SFP-T (sold separately). Alternatively, you can use cost-effective direct-attach Twinax copper cables up to 10 meters long.(2)
