Check out www.vbns.net page on the OC-3 monitor.  OC3 over PCI.

I have a friend who's in the high speed optoelectronics biz and

thought that there was probably a market for PCI cards that spoke IP
over OC-3/OC-12. Before I strongly encourage him to do this, I was
curious as to whether anyone else felt there was a real market for
such things.

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 ;)
