The circuit starts on a 1 Gbps Active Ethernet port on the access equipment in a cabinet that serves the “Fiberhood”. That fiber rides underground and connects optically to an indoor ONT (Optical Network Terminal) inside the customer premise.  From the indoor ONT there is an electrical Ethernet cable (CAT 5E) that connects to the WAN side of the router (BEC 8920AC).  From the router the customer can connect using wireless interface or up to 4 electrical interfaces on the LAN side of the router.
