The euphemism for the wiring that connects a telephone or data customer to the PSTN or a CO.
Refers to the local loop and is the difference between a local telephone company office and the service user; a distance of about 2-3 miles or 3-4 kilometers.
A reference to the local loop, the distance between a local telco office and the subscriber, a distance actually about 0 to 3 miles (0 to 4 kilometers).
Refers to the last â€œmileâ€ between a central office and a customer in a telephone network or a node and a customer in a cable television network. Last-mile distances generally range from 0 miles to 3 miles.
an expression used for the cabling or other communication medium from the closest fiber optic point or other type of high speed/large through-put service point to the end user's equipment. This may be actually 100 feet to the street or telephone pole, or may be a new line back to the local telephone central office (C.O.), etc.
The link (usually composed of twisted-pair copper cabling) between an end-user and the telephone carrier's central office. "Last mile" infrastructure generally runs up to 12,000 feet, a little more than two miles, so the term shouldn't be taken literally.
The part of the network infrastructure that connects individual buildings to some central medium, like a tower, CO, or coaxial cable.
the wires from the local power transformer stations to the building.
The final leg of a cable TV, telephone or other telecommunications network that ends in the user's household. The last mile can be a copper wire, fiber-optic line or a wireless link. Source: cable-modem.net
Not meant to be taken literally, this refers to the problems of communications that occur in that "last mile" - from the exchange to the house or final destination. Often the last mile is old, limited bandwidth copper wire that cannot support the faster modems and computers.
The completion of a broadband network to the ultimate consumer.
Common term used for the last few miles of most telephone companies central office (CO) to the customer premises. It's where the signaling, switching, and DC power are connected to the subscriber's phone.
The cable connection between the CO and a subscriber. Every call has a "last mile" at each end; not a literal mile; a "last mile" might be only a hundred feet or it could be several miles.
A shorthand reference to the last section of a telecommunications path, to the ultimate end user, typically provided by a local exchange carrier.
The stage of data transmission between an end-user, usually at home or work, and the telephone company. Not literally one mile, the term refers to the problems associated with sending a signal at the poorly wired local level, usually only a couple miles or less. Generally, transmissions at this stage are carried through traditional copper wires, which represent a significant problem for high-speed operators trying to widely offer their products to the consumer.
The telephone line between a local telephone company switching facility and the customer premises. Also called the local loop.
The last mile is a term used in relation to power and gas supply networks as well as telecommunications networks to describe the final section of the line that runs up to the subscriber household. Operators with no last mile must generally pay a charge to the network owners.
Last-mile technology is any telecommunications technology, such are wireless radio, that carries signals from the broad telecommunication infrastructure along the relatively short distance (hence, the ìlast mileî) to and from the home or business. To put is another way: last mile is the infrastructure at the neighbourhood level. In many communities, last-mile technology represents a major remaining challenge to high-bandwidth applications.
This is also referred to as the local loop. It is the distance between the CPE equipment and the CO. With current DSL technology, this distance can not be over 18,000 cable feet.
See Local Loop.
Technology that connects a home or business directly to the cable or telephone company. Often considered separately from the rest of a network because of the high cost of digging up sidewalks and yards to connect to a physical cable or fiber network.
Last-mile technology is any telecommunications technology, such as wireless radio, that carries signals from the broad telecommunication along the relatively short distance (hence, the "last mile") to and from the home or business. Or to put it another way: the infrastructure at the neighborhood level. In many communities, last-mile technology represents a major remaining challenge to high-bandwidth applications such as on-demand television, fast Internet access, and Web pages full of multimedia effects
Last-mile technology is the link between individual homes or businesses and a large telecommunications network. Wire cable, fibre optics or wireless radio carries signals from the network along the relatively short distance (hence, the "last mile") to and from the home or business. The Alberta SuperNet brings that critical infrastructure to rural communities. Internet or other Service Providers then build their infrastructure from the communityâ€™s SuperNet demarcation point to their customersâ€™ homes and businesses.
Refers to the local loop and is the difference between a local telephone company office and the customer premises; a distance of about three miles or four kilometers.
(Sometimes referred to as Local Loop). The final leg of delivering communications connectivity to a resident or customer. Typically seen as an expensive challenge because â€œfanning outâ€ wires and cables is a considerably expensive and physically difficult task.
The last mile is the final leg of delivering connectivity from a communications provider to a customer. Usually referred to by the telecommunications and cable television industries, it is typically seen as an expensive challenge because "fanning out" wires and cables is a considerable physical undertaking. In countries employing the metric (as opposed to the imperial) measurement system, the phrase "last kilometre" is sometimes used.
