UPDATE - ATTO Technology Now Shipping Thunderbolt™ 3 Enabled ThunderLink® to 40GbE Devices

ATTO's ThunderLink 3401 and 3402 Represent the First New Thunderbolt 3 Devices to Offer 40GbE Connectivity

AMHERST, NY--(Marketwired - October 13, 2016) - ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage, network connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments for nearly 30 years, is pleased to announce the availability of 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 truly doubling that of Thunderbolt 2, the new ThunderLink devices provide sufficient 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.

As always, 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.

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.

"We're very excited to continue our longstanding commitment to provide the broadest portfolio of reliable products for high-performance, data-intensive audio and video workflows," says Tim Klein, CEO of ATTO Technology.

The new ThunderLink devices, and all Thunderbolt 3 enabled products, utilize a USB-C connector, which will ease connectivity to a wider variety of platforms.

"For the first time, one computer port connects to Thunderbolt devices, every display, and billions of USB devices," said Jason Ziller, Director of Thunderbolt Marketing at Intel. "Products like ATTO Technology's ThunderLink devices help highlight what Thunderbolt 3 makes possible."

ATTO's Thunderbolt 3 ThunderLink series includes:

  • ThunderLink 3401 Thunderbolt 3 to single-port 40GbE devices
  • ThunderLink 3402 Thunderbolt 3 to dual-port 40GbE devices
