"Point of Presence" describes the dial-in nodes of Internet Service Providers through which the customer gains access to the Internet.

Other points of interconnection are also described as PoP - for example the dial-in node in a local network (Intranet) or the points of interconnection between subnetworks of the Wide Area Network.

The access points for customers who use broadband Internet access technologies such as ADSL are also described as broadband PoP.
