Central Office (CO)
What is the connection where the physical line from the CPE connects into a router or WAN switch at the CO?
local loop (or last mile) From the customer perspective , this is the "first mile" because it is the first part of the medium leading from the location of the customer.
What controls the rate at which data moves onto the local loop?
The CSU/DSU or modem

Provides the clocking signal to the router
