    TB3ADP10GBE - Overview

    Thunderbolt 3 10G Ethernet Adapter - Portable Bus Powered 5-Speed Network Adapter
    OWC TB3ADP10GBE is a portable Ethernet supercharger, the Thunderbolt 3 10G Ethernet Adapter adds up to 10Gb/s Ethernet connectivity to Thunderbolt 3-equipped computers that lack built-in capabilities. If you're a video editor, creative pro, musician, or gamer, you can experience blazing-fast transfer speeds with signal reliability, stability, and security wherever you work or play.

    Engage Warp Speed File Transfers
    Connecting the OWC Thunderbolt 3 10G Ethernet Adapter to your Thunderbolt 3-equipped Mac or PC adds warp speed file transfers to your workflow. Now you can access 10GBASE-T 10Gb Ethernet networks and other devices, such as a Network Attached Storage (NAS) system, to transfer large multimedia files at over 900MB/s real-world speed. While improving project efficiency and workgroup collaboration with the quickest network connection available, the adapter is also backwards compatible with other Ethernet standards including 5GBASE-T, 2.5GBASE-T, 1000BASE-T, and 100BASE-Tx.

    Bottleneck-Free Editing Collaboration
    For post-production to work at maximum efficiency, multiple editors need to collaborate and work as a team. The Thunderbolt 3 10G Ethernet Adapter keeps projects on schedule and under budget by giving multiple editing workstations the bandwidth needed for sharing and editing data-intensive creative content like video, animation, and graphics. Now editing can take place directly from files on a shared RAID storage device or NAS, such as OWC Jupiter Mini or OWC Jupiter Callisto, without the time waste of downloading files to individual workstations.

    Ideal For Ethernet Limited Computers
    The Thunderbolt 3 10G Ethernet Adapter opens up a world of high-performance network connectivity to Thunderbolt 3-equipped notebooks that lack built-in Ethernet connectivity and to desktop machines handcuffed by a built-in 1Gb/s Ethernet port like the iMac 2017, Mac mini 2018, and All-In-One PCs.

    Maximizes Soho Networks
    Without having to incur the extra expense of a full 10Gb Ethernet network, it's becoming common for budget-constrained, yet performance-oriented creative professionals in small or home offices to connect to a 2.5 - 5Gb/s equipped router or switch. Unfortunately, these pros are often limited to Gigabit Ethernet (1Gb/s) speed by their computer. By simply adding the Thunderbolt 3 10G Ethernet Adapter to their machine, photographers, videographers, musicians, and other creative pros can now enjoy greater signal reliability, stability, and security with up to 5x faster speed on 2.5 - 5Gb/s networks and up to 10x faster speed on 10Gb Ethernet networks.

    Dramatically Increases Performance And Roi Of Existing Network
    With an ideal combination of affordability and performance, most wired local area networks installed over the past two decades utilize Cat 5e or Cat 6 copper cabling. Unfortunately, these setups are limited to a maximum 1Gb/s speed. Thanks to its built-in 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T technology (formerly NBASE-T), the Thunderbolt 3 10G Ethernet Adapter can deliver up to 5Gb/s speed over existing cabling for up to a 500% performance increase and maximum infrastructure ROI.
