The Sun OC-48 packet-over-SONET adapter provides the company's server line with up to 2.4Gbps data connectivity and up to 2km transmission distance using single-mode fiber-optic cables.

Designed for the Sun Fire V880, 4800, and 6800 servers, the PCI network interface adapter allows network engineers to connect the servers directly onto an OC-48 resilient packet ring (RPR) network and take advantage of packet over SONET technology.

By supporting PPP and SRP, the adapter delivers network resiliency in the RPR network through self-healing failover and restoration after link failure in mission-critical network and backbone applications.

The adapter features a 64-bit, 66MHz PCI bus and dissipates 14W at an operating temperature range of 0C to 55C. It is also designed to be compatible with Cisco's Dynamic Packet Transport (DPT)/RPR technology.

The OC-48 Packet-Over-SONET Adapter with PPP is quoted at $12,000, while the adapter with SRP support lists for $24,250.
