Can You Connect a 10Gb SFP+ Device to 10Gb Ethernet Switch

Is there any adapter or cable to connect an SFP+ device (such as a server) to a standard ethernet switch?


Edit: It must be compatible with 10Gb

Sorry, I should have specified that it needs to be 10Gb compatible, the Netgear one is only 1Gb compatible.

Yes, there exists 10Gbps copper SFPs.

I can't vouch for how well they work though.

What you're referring to is a SFP to RJ45 adapter. You can convert SFP ports to RJ45 ports to accept ethernet cables, but you cannot convert a RJ45 port to accept a fiber or copper cable coming from an SFP device. Most decent managed switches have at least one or two SFP ports.

A fairly normal one, available for several switch brands according to the "Color" options in Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/10Gtek-SFP-10G-T-S-Compatible-10GBase-T-Transceiver/dp/B01KFBFL16

An incredibly cheap one, but that is only guaranteed to work with Mikrotik products (it's cheap because it uses a newer 10GbE chip than most other adapters, but that also means that compatibility might not be great, even ignoring switches that only accept first-party SFPs): https://mikrotik.com/product/s_rj10
