ATTO Technology has announced new ThunderLink 3401 and 3402 devices, allowing 40GbE connectivity from new Thunderbolt 3-enabled platforms to networks and storage while also providing backwards compatibility to Thunderbolt 2 devices and 10GbE infrastructures.
With single- and dual-output options and speeds doubling that of Thunderbolt 2, the new ThunderLink devices provide bandwidth for 4K video workflows via a single cable. ATTO’s Thunderbolt 3 devices enable higher performance and permit large bandwidth-intensive transfers via all major Ethernet protocols, says Tim Klein, CEO of ATTO Technology.
ATTO’s ThunderLink devices feature proprietary Advanced Data Streaming (ADS) technology for the smoothest data transfers, eliminating dropped frames and providing the most consistent time-to-data for high-performance applications or mobile workstation users, he adds. When it was revealed at this year’s NAB conference in Las Vegas, Post Magazine named ATTO’s ThunderLink 3402 device the “Coolest New Product” at the show.
ATTO’s Thunderbolt 3 ThunderLink series includes ThunderLink 3401 Thunderbolt 3 to single-port 40GbE devices and ThunderLink 3402 Thunderbolt 3 to dual-port 40GbE devices.
