Chapter 6. Local Access

This chapter covers the following topics:

  • Dedicated Local Access Configuration

  • Switched Local Access Configuration

  • Local Exchange Carrier (LEC) Central Office (CO) Configuration

Access to a network service provider's (NSP) services requires a physical connection (landline or wireless) to that NSP's office. This physical connection between the customer site and the NSP office is known as the network local access. This local access, also known as the local loop or the last mile, supports both dedicated and switched services.
