Leverage the power of your PC's Thunderbolt 3 port to add 10 GbE connectivity to your Windows or Mac computer using the Solo 10G Thunderbolt 3 to 10 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter from Sonnet. This adapter comes equipped with a single Thunderbolt 3 connector and a single RJ45 network port. Additionally, it derives its power directly from the Thunderbolt 3 port, eliminating the need for a power adapter.
Inside this adapter, you will find a variety of features designed to provide a seamless network connection, including TCP, UDP, and IPv4 checksum offloading, and support for the energy-efficient Ethernet standard 802.3az, which reduces the strain placed on your computer's power supply. When finished, you can unplug this Ethernet adapter and take it with you on the go thanks to its small form factor and rugged aluminum case for enhanced durability.
Fast 10GBase-T Connectivity
The Thunderbolt to 10Gb Ethernet adapter - Sonnet's Solo 10G Thunderbolt 3 Edition adapter - is a powerfully simple solution for adding fast 10GBase-T 10 GbE network connectivity to any Mac or Windows computer with Thunderbolt 3 ports.
The Solo 10G adapter is equipped with a single RJ45 socket, enabling it to connect to 10 GbE infrastructure via inexpensive Cat 6 or Cat 6A copper cabling at distances up to 180' or 328', respectively.
NBase-T Support for Faster Transfers Across Existing Cabling
Does your facility have Cat 5e wiring installed already? You can still get a great performance gain - from 250 to 500 percent over Gigabit Ethernet speed - without rewiring. The Solo 10G adapter supports the NBase-T industry-standard of 2.5/5 Gb link speeds, which enables greater than Gigabit Ethernet speeds over Cat 5e (or better) cabling when used with an NBase-T compatible (multi-Gigabit) switch or router. This capability allows you to deploy the same adapter across an organization for users supported by different Ethernet cabling infrastructures.
Advanced Features, Intelligent Operation
The Solo 10G 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 file transfers or high I/O operations take place. This Sonnet adapter supports Energy-Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az), which reduces the adapter's power demands on your computer.
Replaceable Captive Cable
Through the use of a captive cable, the Solo 10G adapter's Thunderbolt connector remains firmly connected to it at all times. Should the cable ever break, it can easily be replaced with an approved replacement cable available from Sonnet or a Sonnet-authorized reseller.
Safe and Secure
As a networked conduit into your computer, the Sonnet Solo 10G was designed with essential security features. Incorporating encryption in hardware, the Sonnet adapter is protected against malicious modification of its firmware. Any unauthorized attempt at firmware modification to facilitate surreptitious computer access would render the adapter inoperable. This secure design prevents the Solo 10G adapter firmware from being reprogrammed except by a manufacturer's update using a secure encryption key.
Audio Video Bridging (IEEE 802.1Qav, AVB) support makes the adapter perfect for use in pro audio and video applications where synchronization of data streams is critical.
Pocketable, Bus-Powered, and Silent
Unlike the vast majority of 10GbE adapters, the Solo 10G is pocketable - measuring a mere 3.1 inches wide by 4.5 inches deep by 1.1 inches tall - and it's bus-powered to enable truly portable use without a power adapter. Using the latest technologies and wrapping them in a rugged aluminum case, Sonnet designed a cool-running adapter that doesn't need a fan, allowing silent and energy-efficient operation.
Connect the Solo 10G adapter to your computer, connect the adapter to the network switch or directly to 10GbE-enabled storage, and configure the adapter's settings through the Mac OS Network control panel or Windows Device Manager.

If you would like to return any item(s), please contact us by either emailing email@example.com or calling (+372) 5556 0057. We will share with you a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) code and ask that you clearly mark this code outside of your shipping box as you ship your item(s) back for a refund.
You will be liable for the shipping and any applicable customs/duty fees returning the item(s).
If the return is made due to a faulty product, or an incorrectly shipped product, or if you are returning the item(s) due to a defect, or functionality issue, or because it is not the item you have ordered, we will gladly email or mail a return shipping label covering all shipping related expenses. In order to determine whether the return is initiated due to a technical problem, we may ask for you to provide visual support like images or a video on the item(s).
Returned merchandise must be in its original packaging, and placed in a decent shipping box, e.g. the same box that we shipped the items to you in. Please make sure to clearly mark the RMA code you have received from us outside on the box.
Do not forget to cover or peel off any existing shipping labels on the box.
DIT Supplies OÜ cannot be held accountable for return shipments that have not reached us or returns made without RMA codes. We strongly advise that if you are returning the item(s) with a carrier of your choice that you use a traceable shipping method.

Customs policies vary widely from country to country; and when customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates. We advise that you contact your local customs office for more information.
