Another person throwing around terms they don't know. A "node" is a "fiber converter" which serve a service area. Understand the difference between a node and service area please.

Why did Comcast install these boxes? What function do they serve? Signal Amplifying ?
These are the beginning of the node for that area... Amp, Power Supplies, Fiber converter, etc. They used to only have them in areas off the path but now the nodes are much smaller so they have to go somewhere I suppose.
