May be you can educate me on this. I am trying to understand how the fiber provider deliver the fiber to a building. The provider in question is DQE. From my understanding, Verizon also gets involved. How does it all work?
I know that Verizon takes care of the last mile. So where is it all connected? Thanks

Your provider (DQE) purchase last mile from Verizon who turn up and drop their connection into your building at a specified location (wherever you guys tell them, usually a ground floor electrical/telephone room).

They then connect whatever network device they are passing it to (cisco router etc if requested) and from that device they run a patch cable to an ethernet socket. This is the dividing line, anything from that socket backwards is their responsibility.

You then plug your router/firewall/network device into the ethernet socket and thats it.

"They then connect whatever network device they are passing it to": you meant from the verizon demarc to the DQE router; then from the DQE router to the ethernet socket; then to my firewall. it is all ethernet from the demarc to my fw. Correct?

I dont know the specifics of DQE, in our case it was just a verizon line into "DQE" then a line out to the DMARK for us.

Ethernet handoff which we cabled up to our server room.
