Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Thunderbolt™ Optical Cables by Corning compatible with all Thunderbolt peripheral devices?

Yes. Thunderbolt Optical Cables by Corning have been fully tested to meet Intel’s “Thunderbolt Interconnect Specification” which ensures interoperability. Corning has also attended industry “Plug Fest” events that successfully tested more than a hundred Thunderbolt devices to further insure that all electrical/optical Thunderbolt interconnect cables are fully compatible.

Can I ‘daisy chain’ two Thunderbolt™ Optical Cables by Corning together to double my distance?

No. The Thunderbolt™ standard does not allow using a passive Mini Display Port (mDP) receptacle adapter to connect two assemblies together. Thunderbolt™ Optical Cables by Corning comes in lengths up to 100 meters and thereby covers almost all applications.
