    Hi Y'all,

    don't know if this is the right newsgroup to post this in but here

    In some diagrams, I tend to see routers being connected CPE's going
    to the telco while other times I see routers connected to
    csu's/dsu's....Can anybody clarify this?

    CPE = Customer Premised Equipment (Customer Equipment)

    Some routers have built-in CSU/DSU's and others have external CSU/DSU's.
