Thunderbolt™ Optical Cables and USB 3. Optical™ Cables by Corning connects computers and devices at incredible speed and over longer distances without any loss of performance or connectivity. They’re thin, light, remarkably tough and can be bent, squeezed and tangled. Up to 50% thinner and 80% lighter than copper cables. Perfect for the demands of the production and broadcast industry.
Optical Cables by Corning unleash the brilliance of light to connect computers and peripherals at speeds up to 5 Gb/s through USB or up to 10 Gb/s through Thunderbolt™ technology and up to 20 Gb/s through Thunderbolt2. Utilising cutting-edge optical fiber technology, they can maintain that speed over much longer distances than traditional copper cable.
To use the optical cables with Thunderbolt3 we recommend using Apple’s TB3 to TB2 adapter.
