    OC48 to 10 gig hardware / convertor / whatever?

    We have a customer with a GigE, and he wants more capacity.
    He doesnt want bonded GigE ports.
    He already has 10 Gig ports on his router, although there are no 10 gig ports available from carriers in his pop.
    There are OC48 connections though.

    Anyone know of a reliable OC48 to 10 gig hardware / convertor / whatever?

    Why not get an OC48 interface directly? Most (if not all) routers that will support 10 Gig connectivity should have some type of OC48 interface options.

    I know you said they don't want bonded GigEs, but it probably is a much cheaper and easier solution.

    Tell the customer to get a OC48 port on his router and just take the connection, otherwise have him pay for the hardware required for you to "convert" it to 10G.

    OR tell the carrier to get in the game and drop a 10G port off, it should be cheaper than TDM anyways. If a customer wants a 48 or more of bandwidth that should be sufficient leverage for the carrier to upgrade their gear. We recently had Cox Comm do a 48-> 2 x 10G upgrade for us and it was non-service affecting and quick. They just slapped two VAMs in on either side and broke off a wave for 10G.

    You can't convert a OC48 to 10G First off your going from SONET to Ethernet, depending on his equipment he might be able to replace the 10g with a oc192.

    Tell him to start bonding circuits with carriers if no one has a 10G port available, or he needs to get a OC48 line card and optics.
