data circuit terminating equipment

   (DCE)
   The interfacing equipment required to connect data terminal equipment (DTE) to or from a transmission circuit or channel. With an RS-232-C connection, the modem is usually regarded as DCE, while the terminal or computer is DTE. In a X.25 connection, the network access and packet switching node is viewed as the DCE.
