trunk interface
Explanation:
Or "trunk connection". In telecom, which has carried over to Internet applications, trunk lines are the large-capacity lines off of which individual consumer connections branch. Another translation, which I think is probably interchangeable would be "backbone interface", since backbone is a generic term used in Internet applications for large connecting lines.
