Anyway, I agree with Mr Gao that it will be usefull to have a distinguishing
name for the last network element, something like ONE "outest network element"
or END "edge netework device" or any other that may be chosen.
I think the (layer 3) network edge is inside my computer, where the TCP
stacks interfaces to the applications. The layer 7 network edge is even
A much mmore interesting edge is the edge of a control area (where the
corporate edge meets the ISP edge, or where the corporate network meets my
in-house network, for instance).
Very few things change where my drop-cable plugs into my hub.
