    Thunderbolt 3 to Cat6A

    What product do you guys recommend for connecting to the Nexis with this setup?

    I have a MBP 2018 model with thunderbolt 3.  I'm using the ATTO 2102 with an Apple thunderbolt 3 to 2 adapter/dongle, but I've noticed that the Apple adapter actually gets warm with heavy read/writes and it is not reliable.  For example after 30 min of copying to the server it briefly loses contact and disconnects me.

    Is there a product that is certified TB3 to Cat6a for use with the Nexis Pro?  That way I can take one point of faiure out of the equation.

     

    Thanks

    Wow. There really is nothing.  Oh well I swapped Apple 3 to 2 adapters and that cleared up the problem for now.

    We haven't any reports of issues with the Apple adapter. We have been testing the StarTech TBT3TBTADAP.
