TRENDnet (www.TRENDnet.com) has launched what it says is the market’s first USB-C Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Adapters with its USB-C 3.1 to 5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter (TUC-ET5G) and the USB-C 3.1 to 2.5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter (TUC-ET2G).
They provide a simple way for users to upgrade their Ethernet connection to high-performance, multi-gigabit networking speeds. Simply use one of TRENDnet’s USB-C Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Adapters to transfer and download large files to your laptop or computer over a USB-C connection faster than you could before. Both models support high-speed 2.5GBASE-T networking speeds up to 2.5Gbps, with a USB 3.1 connection interface to maintain fast and reliable network connectivity; the TUC-ET5G also supports the higher 5GBASE-T network speed, up to 5Gbps.
TRENDnet’s first to market USB-C 3.1 to 5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter and the USB-C 3.1 to 2.5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter are compatible for use with your existing Cat5e cabling (or better). The USB-C Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Adapters also support CoS and VLAN industry protocols that can be passed along to a connected switch. CoS allows users to prioritize specific types of data over others, and VLANs allow for virtual device groupings for an added layer of protection and simpler network management.
Both USB-C Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Adapters are very compact with an integrated USB cable and a low-profile design. TRENDnet’s USB-C Adapters are compatible with both Windows® and Mac® operating systems. The adapters are conveniently powered via the USB port, and no external power adapter is required.
TRENDnet’s USB-C 3.1 to 2.5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter (TUC-ET2G) is available now online on the TRENDnet Store, or worldwide via our distribution and retail partners. The USB-C 3.1 to 5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter (TUC-ET5G) will be available at the beginning of June.
