40G.  cool.

or 77Mb/s.  

hrm.  so confusing.  

i regularly do 80+Mb/s on 100 Mb/s full duplex links.  perhaps you
should have considered that technology for this application.  Or even
copper or fiber gigabit interfaces.

i think you'll find that both options are considerably cheaper for the
traffic that you have.  you may be able to use the remaining capex
spend on other gear inside of your network.
