How to install an NTP

What is an NTP? 

An NTP (=network termination point, demarcation point) is the point at which the Proximus network ends and connects with the customer’s internal cabling. It is the dividing line between Proximus and customer’s domains. 

What does an NTP look like?

A modern NTP should be a TF2007 connection box and look like this:

12. Connect the wires with the connectors. 

  • Loosen the screws by turning them counterclockwise. 
  • Put the wires into the corresponding connector.
    • ​The orange connector is used for grounding (mostly, not connected).
    • The two network wires with a tone should be put into the black connector.
    • All wires for telephony, including alarms and other accessories, are put into the green connector.
    • In case you are using a separate cable meant only for connecting the modem/router, put it into the blue connector.
  • ​Tighten the screws by turning them clockwise.
Note: In case there are some wires left, fold them neatly in the socket case so that they have no contact with the metal parts.
