Freebase

  1. Node

    In communication networks, a node is a connection point, either a redistribution point or a communication endpoint. The definition of a node depends on the network and protocol layer referred to. A physical network node is an active electronic device that is attached to a network, and is capable of sending, receiving, or forwarding information over a communications channel. A passive distribution point such as a distribution frame or patch panel is consequently not a node.

In communications and computer systems, the physical location that provides terminating, switching, and gateway access services to support information exchange. 3.
