thuSonnet Solo10G Overview

Key Features

  • 10 Gb/s RJ45 Ethernet Port
  • Replaceable Captive Thunderbolt 2 Cable
  • Up to 10 Gb/s over Cat 6/6a Cables
  • Up to 5 Gb/s over Cat 5e Cables

Get up to 10 Gb/s data transfer rates over your existing network cabling with the Solo10G Thunderbolt 2 to 10GBase-T Ethernet Adapter from Sonnet. This portable, bus-powered adapter features a 10 Gb/s RJ45 Ethernet port and a replaceable captive cable with a 20 Gb/s Thunderbolt 2 interface.

The Solo10G Thunderbolt 2 adapter can enable up to 10 Gb/s data speeds over Cat 6 or Cat 6a cables, or up to 5 Gb/s speeds over Cat 5e cabling. Housed in an aluminum shell, the adapter supports Audio Video Bridging, which is ideal for pro audio and video applications, while Energy Efficient Ethernet support helps to reduce power consumption. The adapter is compatible with both macOS and Windows systems.

NBASE-T Support

The Solo10G adapter supports the NBASE-T industry standard of 2.5/5 Gb/s link speeds, which enables multi-Gigabit Ethernet speeds over up to 328.1' of Cat 5e or better cabling when used with an NBASE-T-compatible switch or router. This allows you to deploy the same adapter across your organization for users supported by different Ethernet cabling infrastructures.

Cost Effective

Low-cost adapter connects to 10GbE infrastructure via inexpensive Cat 6 or Cat 6a cables at distances up to 180.4' or 328.1', respectively.

20 Gb/s Thunderbolt 2 Interface

Connects to any Thunderbolt 2 computer port, or at the end of a Thunderbolt 2 device daisy chain.

Replaceable Captive Cable

Equipped with a captive cable, the Solo10G adapter's Thunderbolt 2 connector is designed to remain firmly connected without being soldered in place. Should the cable ever break, it can easily be replaced with an approved replacement cable available from Sonnet or a Sonnet-authorized reseller.

Secure First

The Solo10G Thunderbolt 2 adapter was engineered with essential security features. Incorporating hardware encryption, the Sonnet network adapter is protected against malicious firmware modification that could allow covert computer access. Any unauthorized attempt to modify the firmware renders the adapter inoperable. These security features prevent the Solo10G adapter from being reprogrammed without the use of a secure encryption key.

Advanced Features, Intelligent Operation

The Solo10G Thunderbolt 2 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 the Energy Efficient Ethernet standard (IEEE 802.3az), which reduces the adapter's power demands on your computer.

AVB Support

Audio Video Bridging (IEEE 802.1Qav, AVB) support makes the adapter ideal for use in pro audio and video applications where synchronization of data streams is critical.

Pocketable, Bus-Powered, and Quiet

Measuring just 3.1 x 4.5 x 1.1", the pocketable and bus-powered Solo10G is a truly portable device. Wrapping the latest technologies in a rugged aluminum case, Sonnet designed a cool-running adapter that doesn't need a fan, allowing for quiet and energy-efficient operation.

Simple Setup

Connect the Solo10G adapter to your computer, then connect the adapter to a network switch or directly to 10GbE-enabled storage. You can then configure the adapter's settings through the macOS Network control panel or Windows Device Manager.
