RJ45 to SFP

hello forum Guys, 

 

Please let me know if there is a way to connect adapter to convert RJ45 to SFP. Means that I will plug adapter to RJ45 port(switch or router) and I will be able to connect SFP cable on the other end.

Beside a dedicated 3rd party device, a small switch that supports both RJ45 and SFP might be used for that purpose too. E.g. 1000 Series 8-port, SG250-10P. etc.

Okay, i just wanted to make sure, because i have read several people in here who had had issues of different kinds with different types of SFP connections where the module didnt"fit" or whatever was going on.

Re: RJ45 to SFP

media converters are not so expensive, unlike SFP Module, so you can test, i have used them some sites where this requirement come, only drawback with DC adapters, they fail due to temparature, if you installing in the Outside Factories.
