None right now. Gigarouter can handle it theoretically, but...

I'm being picky, but it's a moot question since doing wirespeed OC3c using 
ATM is impossible in of itself. Hell, mapping of SONET framings to ATM 
cells take off about 6 mbps right there.

Anyway, until then you have a router that can do this, there always are 
ATM switches + cluster of routers.
