I don't know much about Mikrotik, but there are OC-3 interfaces you can 
put in a regular pc:


http://oem.imagestream.com/PCI_Card_Overview.html (the 1104 does POS/OC3 
if I read it correctly).

There seems to be others, last I checked though these cards were in the 
USD4000-5000 range or so, so it was cheaper to buy a used 7200/NPE-300 and 

If someone knows and has good experience of a POS card (pci or pci-e) that 
works well in Linux (2.6.32 preferrably) I'm very interested.
