Our Thunderbolt optical cables are a great solution for noise-sensitive environments, you can separate your workspace from noisy equipment or connect to a centralized server in the machine room.

How do you use Thunderbolt™ Optical Cables?

Audio/Video Production
Consider the big picture – which includes not only your state-of-the-art equipment, but also optimizing what goes on behind the scenes. The gear that makes up that workflow is only as good as the cabling solution connecting it all together.

High-Performance Computing (HPC)High-Performance Computing (HPC)
HPC systems take up more space, require a great amount of power, and generate more heat than your typical network configuration. Your workflow needs to keep up – and Thunderbolt Optical Cables are your answer.

Avoid wasted time, missed shots, and additional steps with increased probability for error. The cable you use opens opportunities for higher-quality shots and overall improvement.

Medical ImagingMedical Imaging
Robust, reliable network connectivity cabling is essential to the advances being made in medical imaging. Transmitting high-resolution images quickly to any location in the healthcare facility is integral for effective treatment and a fast patient diagnosis.

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.
