ATTO is introducing several new Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity devices at IBC, September 8-12 in Amsterdam.

In one of two demos, ATTO will reveal its much-anticipated Thunderbolt 3 to 32Gb Gen 6 Fibre Channel ThunderLink device, allowing content creators to achieve the highest throughput rates for improved 4K workflows.

The demonstration will feature a workstation streaming 4K footage from a Facilis Terrablock with Celerity 32Gb Gen 6 host bus adapters (HBAs) through a Brocade 32Gb Fibre Channel switch in addition to a Lenovo ThinkPad P70 Thunderbolt 3 mobile workstation connected to the Terrablock through the new ThunderLink 3322 32Gb Fibre Channel device.

ATTO will continue to support 16Gb Fibre Channel with the introduction of the ThunderLink 3162 Thunderbolt 3 to 16Gb Fibre Channel device. These new devices allow customers to take full advantage of the increased bandwidth of Thunderbolt 3 with speeds of up to 2750 MB/s.

  • MultiPath Director™ for failover and load balancing, coupled with dual ports for redundancy and expanded support
  • SFP+ modules are included and have been tested for interoperability
  • A simple configuration tool to manage and monitor Thunderbolt products and ATTO HBAs from a single pane of glass
