Fuses on Telephone Pole

On the utility pole across the street is a box, about 20 x 8 x 1.5".
A telephone cable goes in and phone lines for the houses in the
neighborhood come out.

Six years ago I lost my telephone service when lightning struck. The
phone man climbed to the box and replaced a fuse (or two).

Has anybody else heard of those fuses? What is the box called? Where
can I learn more?
