I'm looking for lo-cost devices that will take Ethernet from one side and send it over an OC-3 circuit to another such device on the other side. Specifically I am looking for a device that has a non-copper Gig-E port on it so that you can get as much of the OC-3 bandwidth as possible. Most devices I've seen have a copper 10/100 port and only work to 100Mbps. I know that RAD has a new device (the RIC155GE) and it's the first one I've seen but I'm wondering if anyone has come across anything else. Low-cost and simplicity are key, as extra 10/100 ports and TDM ports and other things on the box only add to the expense (though SNMP management is needed).
