router -> server optical connection


Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of building a new server and I would like to have it galvanically isolated from the router (although the ethernet specification implies non-galvanic coupling, the "gremlins" I've experienced with this kind of connection seem to show that some noise is making its way into the PC).

I had in mind something like:

ethernet cable >> rj45 to SFP converter >> sfp cable >> sfp pcie net card


Do you have suggestions regarding both the fore mentioned chain configuration and/or recommentations regarding the components/cabling I should use? would the startech card be ok?

Regarding the SFP, is there any vantage regarding the SC?


Thanks! :)
