In the in-house area, the fiber-optic termination point is connected to the fiber-optic building distributor(GF-GV), via which the individual floors of the building and the apartments are connected. This connection can be equipped with a switching function via which the network operator can connect and disconnect the apartment connections. Depending on the network level and network structure, the optical fibers are routed to the apartments or rooms in a star configuration.
