TransAtlantic 40 Gig Waves

Obviously using 40 gig waves as the foundation blocks of one's network provides some economies of scale and per unit capex cost savings. 

I would be curious if anyone knows how to convert this SONET/SDH 40 gig waves into a 40 gig Ethernet handoff? 

Afterall, OC768 route cards are a tad expensive ...

Congrats Rod.

Southern Cross and Nortel have been trialing 40Gbps waves on the 8000km 
segment from Hawaii to New Zealand.

The 8000km segment is a LONG way - a very long way but it should mean 
stability for any cable system (I'm not sure there are segments that are 
much longer on any other system) - the bandwidth limit hasn't been hit yet!
