Sonnet Technologies has announced the Solo10G PCI® Card, the latest product in the company’s expanding line of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) solutions.
The Solo10G card adds 10GbE network connectivity to any Mac, Windows, or Linux computer with PCI Express (PCIe) slots, and to Mac and Windows computers with Thunderbolt ports when the card is installed in a Thunderbolt to PCI Express card expansion chassis. This Sonnet adapter card enables users to connect their computers via copper cables to high-speed network infrastructure and storage systems using the 10GbE standard.
The Solo10G PCIe Card is equipped with a single RJ45 port, enabling 10Gb Ethernet connectivity via Cat 6 or Cat 6a copper cabling at distances of up to 55 or 100 meters, respectively. This Sonnet adapter card also supports NBASE-T technology, a recent Ethernet standard that enables 2.5Gbps and 5Gbps speeds on existing Cat 5e (and better) cabling at distances of up to 100 meters. This capability enables organizations with older infrastructure to simply update to multiGigabit Ethernet switches and switches and to use Sonnet’s Solo10G PCIe Card to boost network transmission speeds up to 500% without the need to rewire.
The Solo10G PCIe Card will be available June 19 at a suggested retail price of $99. More information is available at https://tinyurl.com/ybocpel8.
