Primary Connection Point.

The existing green cabinets that BT engineers use to make connection back to the exchange and, nowadays, connect into the colocated FTTC cabinet.

What's an F.O line?

Right. I'm so used to the word "fibre" alone that adding "optic" feels alien, and the shorthand didn't make sense to me.

So EO lines are nothing to do with it, not a copper rearrangement. Back to RobertoS' answer...

Ah!

But that would make it PCCP wink.

So I did a little google and discovered Openreach have a glossary. That gives Primary Cross-connection Point, solving the double-C problem.

The GEA entry is less impressive. Correct but could leave a lot of people needing to google some of its content. Anybody not needing to google the content wold not need to be looking it up in the first place smile.

I wonder though ... I'm sure Zarjaz will know. Might it have been the simple "Primary Connection Point" in times of yore, because surely its only cross-connection function is with these new-fangled FTTC cabinets?

It's always been a cross-connection point, as it cross connects the E & D side pairs.
