We currently use Overture Networks for Ethernet over DS3:
You can use them as a simple Ethernet bridge if that is all you
need/want, but they also will handle VLAN tagging, tag-in-tag, VLAN
switching, rate-limiting, CoS, etc. Some people don't like them because
there is no CLI for management only a web-based GUI and SNMP.
