Has anyone every tried those long optical thunderbolt cables? They should work with TB3, too, using two TB2<->TB3 Adapters.

From what i remember, a withe paper posted on the forum some time ago about TB technology was specifying 40Gbps optical modules for the TB3 controllers.
But not sure these have been implemented for commercial use, at the end a decent lan network may be more suited if long distances between devices is needed.

So not sure you will find something commercial about, make sense since it would be really for a niche TB users.
