The Echo Express SEL 10 Gigabit Ethernet Thunderbolt 2 Adapter from Sonnet bundles an Echo Express SEL Thunderbolt 2 Expansion Chassis with a Presto 10GbE PCIe card and a 1-port Fibre SFP+ transceiver, providing you a near plug and play solution for adding 10GbE connectivity. This adapter measures 4" wide by 8.4" long by 2.8" tall. A temperature-controlled, variable-speed fan keeps the adapter running cool and quiet. In addition, the Thunderbolt 2 ports on the back panel of the chassis support daisy chaining of up to six devices, to a single port on the host computer. This adapter features 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) this high speed wired networking standard offers ten times the performance of Gigabit Ethernet. The adapter provides a simple way to add lightning fast 10 Gigabit Ethernet network connectivity to desktops or Mac notebooks with Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt ports.

It enables you to connect your computer to high-speed infrastructure and storage, without stepping down in speed. You can connect the Echo Express SEL 10GbE to a host computer via the included Thunderbolt cable and to the switch or 10GbE port via fiber optic cable (sold separately), plug in the included power supply, and then configure the setup through the OS X Network control panel.

The adapter is suitable for high-performance computing where low latency, high bandwidth, and low CPU overhead are required. Its increased throughput performance and low host-CPU utilization are achieved with stateless offloads, allowing your computer to perform better for large files transfers or high I/O operations.
