Then you can probably add a port mirror to another port on the switch at your side, that port mirror duplicates all traffic that passes over the fiber cable to another port. Then you can attach a typical pc (with a gigabit nic) to that port with a packet capture software (like ethereal) that will listen to the Ethernet port in promiscuous mode and log all packets passing through.

I don't know the exact model of the swhitches you are using, but this may help for the port mirroring:
