I'm switching one end of a PtP DS3 to a location which only has fiber to
the carrier. As a result, I'm really in need of a Fujitsu FlashWave
4010 or equivalent which can take a sonet-framed OC3 from a carrier and
break it out into individual DS3's.
So far, my normal sources of used equipment have come up dry - but most
of them really only deal with data networking (cisco) stuff, so it's a
bit out of their league. A long time ago (you know, like 100 internet
years ago), I used to post these type of needs to
misc.forsale.computers.net-hardware with good results, but that doesn't
look very useful anymore.
I'm hoping someone can point me towards a reseller which specializes in
this type of stuff, or another source I've overlooked.
(and no, eBay isn't a valid answer for this question... I've been
Of course, if someone would like to tell me a easier/different (but
still reasonably inexpensive) way to break apart a SONET OC3 such that a
far end DS3 can be connected to something like a PA-A3-T3 or a PA-T3
that would work too.
