Distribution point definition

What does Distribution point mean?

An intermediary node in an NGA (access'>next generation access) network from where one or several fibre cables coming from the Metropolitan Point of Presence (MPoP) (the feeder segment) are split and distributed to connect to end-users' premises (the terminating or drop segment). A distribution point generally serves several buildings or houses. It can be located either at the base of a building (in case of multi-dwelling units), or in the street. A distribution point hosts a distribution frame mutualising the drop cables, and possibly un-powered equipment such as optical splitters.
