DO you have copper uplink or Optical uplink in your switch? If OPtical uplink them you can take GLC-ZX-SM= .I think can go till 80Km.

From your post look like you have copper and you can use a media converter which can go 50KM & 80Km.

Or you can use a SDH/SONET box with ethernet capability since your link is linear so i dont think you will get any advantage of SDH/SONET ring protection.
