If you have an OC3 circuit and just want to see GigE on both
sides, use two RIC-155GE boxes - one on each side.,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 ..
