This value is intended for any passive or active equipment, cable or cabinet involved in coaxial connections, for telecom or cable TV.
Subscribers can reach service equipments with DOCSIS broadband landlines for telecom services or simple analog TV service for older networks.
There use to be long distance networks built with coaxial cables but fibre has normally replaced them.
