MX250 WAN Port Converters

Is there a converter available that can be used on the fiber WAN ports of a MX250?  Ports are SFP+ fiber but inet cabling is RJ45.  I know there is one available via Cisco, but it only references use on LAN ports.

 

Thank you.

@THodgesOSC : You can use that on the WAN port as well

No need for a converter, just use MA-SFP-1GB-TX or a compatible SFP.

It was my understanding that the MA-SFP-1GB-TX only works in the LAN ports and not the WAN ports.  Is that not the case?

It works in any SFP or SFP+ port.  It makes no difference if it is a LAN or WAN port.
