I need help with a fiber project - probably a simle question

Last Modified: 2010-04-10
Ok, I have two buildings I need to connect via fiber.  We have a conduit run already, and have contracted with a local company to run and terminate the fiber.  Currently we have point-to-point T-1 lines connecting the buildings - and each is on it's own subnet.

Here is where I need help.  The contractor is asking me how much fiber I want run, and what hardware we want to convert it back into gigabit ethernet.  So, I am hoping that someone will help me come up with a solution.  

I know this probably isn't enough information, so feel free to let me know what else you need to know.
