USB-C to Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Adapters Support High-Speed 5Gbps and 2.5Gbps Network Connectivity with Existing Cat5e Cables

TORRANCE, Calif. - May 14, 2019 -- TRENDnet® (www.TRENDnet.com), a global leader in reliable SMB and consumer networking and surveillance solutions, is excited to launch the market’s first USB-C Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Adapters with its USB-C 3.1 to 5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter (TUC-ET5G) and the USB-C 3.1 to 2.5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter (TUC-ET2G). TRENDnet’s USB-C Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Adapters provide a simple way for users to upgrade their Ethernet connection to high-performance, multi-gigabit networking speeds.

Simply use one of TRENDnet’s USB-C Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Adapters to transfer and download large files to your laptop or computer over a USB-C connection faster than you could before. Both models support high-speed 2.5GBASE-T networking speeds up to 2.5Gbps, with a USB 3.1 connection interface to maintain fast and reliable network connectivity; the TUC-ET5G also supports the higher 5GBASE-T network speed, up to 5Gbps.

“These USB-C Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Adapters provide users an easy way to upgrade their laptops or desktop computers without needing to upgrade their cabling infrastructure for high-speed multi-gigabit support,” said Evan Davis, senior manager of solutions engineering at TRENDnet. “And, it’s the only way to upgrade your wired networking adapter on most of the laptops in the market today.”

TRENDnet’s first to market USB-C 3.1 to 5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter and the USB-C 3.1 to 2.5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter are compatible for use with your existing Cat5e cabling (or better). The USB-C Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Adapters also support CoS and VLAN industry protocols that can be passed along to a connected switch. CoS allows users to prioritize specific types of data over others, and VLANs allow for virtual device groupings for an added layer of protection and simpler network management.

Both USB-C Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Adapters are very compact with an integrated USB cable and a low-profile design. TRENDnet’s USB-C Adapters are compatible with both Windows® and Mac® operating systems. The adapters are conveniently powered via the USB port, and no external power adapter is required.

TRENDnet’s USB-C 3.1 to 2.5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter (TUC-ET2G) is available now online on the TRENDnet Store, or worldwide via our distribution and retail partners. The USB-C 3.1 to 5GBASE-T Ethernet Adapter (TUC-ET5G) will be available at the beginning of June.
