I think the term "interconnect" is fairly generic. I have often heard
some of the providers refer to the MAEs and NAPs as "public interconnects"...

However, I think folks use the term "MAE" and "NAP" to refer to different
implementations of a "public interconnect"... It is probably an
oversimplification to say they are all the same thing.
