Ultra-Fast 10 Gb/s Network Connection
With increasing demands for greater data transfer speeds and more bandwidth over shared networks, and with specialized applications such as HD video editing using high-performance shared storage systems, it’s no wonder that 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) use has skyrocketed—this high-speed cabled networking standard offers ten times the performance of Gigabit Ethernet, the common wired network connection included with most computers today. Sonnet offers a powerfully simple way to add dual-port 10GbE connectivity to your Mac Pro® tower, Windows® PC, or Linux® server—the Presto 10GbE SFP+.
The Presto 10GbE SFP+ dual-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express 2.0 adapter card enables you to connect your computer to high-speed infrastructure and storage without stepping down in speed. Setup is simple—after installing the low-profile card into an available x8 or x16 PCIe slot in your computer, just download and install a driver, connect to the switch or device’s 10GbE port via LC optical cables (SFP+ transceivers and optical cables sold separately), copper cables (RJ45 SFP+ copper transceivers and cables sold separately), or direct attach Twinax copper cables (sold separately), and then configure the card through the OS X® Network control panel or Windows Device Manager. This Sonnet solution is perfect for high-performance computing where low latency, high bandwidth, and low CPU overhead are required.
