Yeah, and it's pretty sweet idea. Haven't used it myself but it seems 
really nice.


RAD’s MiRICi-155 connects Gigabit Ethernet LANs over wireline or wireless 
STM-1 or OC-3 links. The miniature Ethernet over STM-1/OC-3 converter 
provides TDM connectivity to any Ethernet device with an SFP (small form 
factor pluggable)-compatible, GbE port. Hot-swappable and 
software-configurable, the intelligent SFP converter is a fully managed 
device supporting standard GFP encapsulation. It delivers a complete 
Ethernet over SDH/SONET solution in a finger-sized SFP enclosure and 
enables a quick rollout of new Ethernet services over legacy TDM 
infrastructure. The MiRICi-155 is part of RAD’s “System on an SFP” product
