ODN service access

An ODN service access terminal

Optical data net service access was a function provided by a number of devices utilized by the Federation Starfleet during the mid-24th century.

Allowing users to gain access to library computer information and subspace communications on desktop terminals and PADDs, these devices tapped directly into the optical data network. (DS9: "Armageddon Game"; Star Trek: First Contact)

Glimpsed only fleetingly on both Captain Benjamin Sisko's and Jean-Luc Picard's desktop monitors, "Optical data net service access" labels could also be found adhered to PADDs as seen in The Art of Star Trek.
An access panel in Voyager's Main Engineering shown on E! Inside Star Trek: Voyager was labeled as "302 Optical Data Net Service Access" with the description "Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale a tale of a fateful trip", a reference to the TV Series Gilligan's Island.
