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, 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) use has skyrocketed. This high-speed wired 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 10GbE connectivity to your Mac Pro® or Windows® PC—the Presto 10GbE 1-Port(1).

The Presto 10GbE 1-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express adapter card enables you to connect your computer to high-speed infrastructure and storage without stepping down in speed. Setup is simple—install the low-profile card into an available x8 or x16 PCIe slot in your computer, install a driver, connect to the switch or 10GbE port via LC fiber optic or copper cable (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. Its increased throughput performance and low host-CPU utilization are achieved with stateless offloads, allowing your computer to perform better while large files transfers or high I/O operations take place.

Flexibility of Short-Range or Long-Range SFP+ Transceivers
Sonnet offers two SFP+ transceiver options (sold separately), a short-range module (up to 300 meters, part number G10E-SFP-SR), and a long-range module (up to 10 kilometers, part number G10E-SFP-LR) that connect the Presto card via LC fibre optical cable (sold separately) to a network switch or storage. Also, there is the ability to use cost-effective direct-attached copper (up to 7 meters).

Optimized for Thunderbolt™
Got a Thunderbolt connection, but no PCIe slot? Presto 10GbE 1-Port is ideal for use in one of Sonnet's Echo Express Thunderbolt expansion chassis or the xMac mini Server—the combo enables you to add an ultra-fast 10GbE network connection to iMac®, Mac® mini, MacBook Air®, and MacBook Pro® computers.
