QNAP Unveils the QNA-UC5G1T USB 3.0 to 5GbE Adapter

QNAP Systems, Inc. (QNAP), a leading storage, network and computing solutions provider, today launched the QNA-UC5G1T USB 3.0 to 5GbE adapter, allowing users to add 5GbE/2.5GbE/1GbE/100MbE connectivity to their computers and NAS via USB 3.0. Users can easily upgrade their network speed with the QNA-UC5G1T using an existing CAT 5e cable to increase file transfer speeds and work efficiency. 

“Both home and business users require higher bandwidth to take advantage of high-performance systems and faster internet speeds. The handy QNA-UC5G1T adapter can be easily paired with QNAP’s 10GbE switch to create a high-speed network environment at home or in the office to greatly improve network speed and application performance,” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “the QNA-UC5G1T is also useful for adding Ethernet connectivity to modern laptops that lack in-built network ports.”

The QNA-UC5G1T can be connected to other devices using a USB Type-A or Type-C cable. It is palm-sized and passively cooled for easy and prolonged use.
