I was (somewhat) following a dicussion about high speed communications
handled over the PCI bus, and there's a company that makes T1/T3-level
serial cards for PC's, and from what they were saying, there's no way to
reach even a full T3 worth of bandwidth on a PCI bus, so I think trying to
push an OC-# connection over it might be pushing it a bit ;)

This doesn't sound right.

As some random data point, we have run ~70 Mbps (ttcp) using ATM as well as
Fast Ethernet between 133 MHz Pentiums.  I suspect that a faster Pentium
would fill an OC-3c ATM link.
