A Response to COVID-19 From OWC Founder and CEO, Larry O'Connor
T3-10G

As of March 18, 2021, the AKiTiO T3-10G Network Adapter has been discontinued and this model is no longer being manufactured, sold or maintained.

The T3-10G was a bus-powered Thunderbolt 3 to 10G Ethernet adapter. It was designed for Thunderbolt 3 capable notebooks like the MacBook Pro (late 2016) and professional workstations that require reliable, accelerated access to external storage and networks for I/O demanding applications.

As a replacement, we recommend the OWC Thunderbolt 3 10G Ethernet Adapter.

Remarks
  • This Thunderbolt product is not compatible with Apple's Boot Camp.
  • High quality Cat-6A Ethernet cable is recommended for distances up to 100m. At shorter cable length, it's possible to use cables of lower grade (e.g. Cat-6 for 10G or Cat-5e for 5G up to 55m).
  • To use this bus-powered device on older Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 computers, it has to be connected to the second Thunderbolt 3 port on another self-powered Thunderbolt 3 device. If connected directly to the Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter, bus-power is insufficient. A possible setup might look like this: TB2 Mac with macOS 10.13.4 or above > TB3 to TB2 adapter from Apple > self-powered TB3 device with two TB3 ports > TB3 10G adapter.
  • This product has components or design elements that are patented or patent pending.
