Tehuti Introduces Industry’s First Bus Powered, Fanless 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) Thunderbolt™ 2 Adapter Prototype with 10GBase-T Support at IDF San Francisco

Tehuti Delivers Optimal Form Factor, Power and Cost for 10GbE for OS X® and Windows® Notebooks and Workstations

IDF14 San Francisco

HERZELIA, Israel & SAN FRANCISO--()--Tehuti Networks, a fabless semiconductor company focused on enabling mass adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE), today announced TN9210-TB2, the industry’s first bus powered, fanless single-port 10GbE ThunderboltTM 2 adapter prototype with integrated 10GBase-T support. The 10GBase-T TN9210-TB2 adapter simplifies the design of high speed 10GbE networking for modern workstations and Ultrabooks which typically lack 1GbE connectivity or the capability to deploy an internal PCIe 10GbE network card (NIC), but may be equipped with a ThunderboltTM connector capable of delivering up to 20Gbps.

“We are excited to announce the industry’s first bus powered adapter prototype that brings ThunderboltTM 2 technology to 10GBase-T networks, while offering significant power, form factor and cost efficiencies”

The new TN9210-TB2 Network Adapter offers a fanless, low-power, small form factor and low-cost 10GbE solution enabling 10GBase-T connectivity for Apple® OS X® and Microsoft® Windows® environments together with featuring the latest revolutionary I/O technology from Intel®, ThunderboltTM 2 with transfer speeds of up to 20Gbps. The Tehuti ThunderboltTM 2 adapter prototype is ideal for notebooks, such as Apple® Ultrabooks, and professional workstations that require reliable, accelerated access to external storage and networks for I/O demanding applications.

"We are excited to announce the industry’s first bus powered adapter prototype that brings ThunderboltTM 2 technology to 10GBase-T networks, while offering significant power, form factor and cost efficiencies," said Nir Sever, COO at Tehuti Networks. "We look forward to enabling a comprehensive line of desktop and notebook products with ThunderboltTM 2 technology enabled 10GbE networking."

As a leader in 10GbE connectivity solutions designed for pervasive deployment, Tehuti consistently delivers products that optimize performance, power, form factor and cost. Today's increasing demand for media-rich entertainment requires accelerated access to data for the most demanding high-performance applications. Tehuti’s TN9210-TB2 adapter enables high performance desktop applications or mobile platform users with reliable access to data intensive applications such as 2K, 4K and 3D stereoscopic film, multiple layers of complex, uncompressed real-time effects and high-definition (HD) video and audio editing delivering the best-in-industry aggregate bandwidth and predictable data transfers.

The versatility of Tehuti TN9210-TB2 enables today's small form factor notebook platforms, such as Apple® Ultrabook systems, to connect into high-performance storage and networks, and address the demands of rapidly evolving work environments by allowing access to enterprise-level data center networks. To ensure cross-compatibility, the Tehuti ThunderboltTM 2 adapter prototype supports Windows® and OS X® operating systems, enabling users to maintain compatibility with multiple platforms.

“Akitio shares Tehuti’s vision of ubiquitous 10 Gigabit Ethernet network connectivity across workstations and Ultrabooks driven by ThunderboltTM 2,” said Richard Wright, Vice-President at Akitio. “We view the introduction of Tehuti TN9210-TB2 adapter prototype as a key milestone towards enabling this important industry transformation.”

A live demonstration of TN9210-TB2 will be showcased at Tehuti Booth #957 in the ThunderboltTM Community Area at Intel Developer Forum San Francisco September 9 through September 11, 2014.
