Sonnet will be debuting its Echo Pro 10G Thunderbolt 3 Dock in European markets at IBC2019.
Designed for pro video and audio users who need to copy files to and from multiple drives, the Echo Pro 10G dock features three USB-C ports plus three USB-A ports.
Unlike all other docks — which connect all their USB ports to a single USB controller that functions as a hub, splitting bandwidth between them — the Sonnet dock is equipped with three 10Gbps USB 3.1 Gen 2 controllers, each supporting only two ports.
This design enables maximum-speed file transfers between multiple high-speed USB 3.1 Gen 2 drives and a computer through a single Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) cable.
The Echo Pro 10G includes a 10GBASE-T (copper) 10GbE network port, enabling connection to high-speed network infrastructure and storage systems via inexpensive CAT 6 or CAT 6A cabling.
The Echo Pro 10G Thunderbolt 3 Dock also features dual Thunderbolt 3 ports to support daisy chaining of up five additional Thunderbolt peripheral devices, and it provides up to 87W to power and charge compatible notebook and laptop computers.
