If you have an OC3 circuit and just want to see GigE on both sides, use two RIC-155GE boxes - one on each side. http://www.rad.com/Article/0,6583,21840-GbE_over_STM-1_OC-3_Intelligent_Converter,00.html "The RIC-155GE is an intelligent converter enabling simple, efficient and cost-effective bridging of Gigabit Ethernet over STM-1/OC-3 lines." I have no idea how well this works or what the costs are .. Mike.
