does anybody has any documents shows the usecases of the DSLAM & BRAS in the NW?

This paragraph:

"A DSLAM collects data traffic from multiple subscribers into a centralized point so that it can be uploaded to the router over a Frame Relay, ATM, or Ethernet connection."

seems strange, disrupting the flow of logic. It's not clear what's the relationship between BRAS and DSLAM? Are they at the same logic junction, while DSLAM is responsible for the data link, while BRAS responsible for AAA? Yubrshen (talk) 07:50, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

The Router[edit]

The second last paragraph starts with "the router". Who is it? Is "the router"=BRAS? (talk) 08:41, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

A diagram ...[edit]

... that showed the relationships between the various service entities would be a major improvement to the article. -- (talk) 10:56, 30 October 2010 (UTC)


I think that the BRAS nomenclature is applied to classic ATM-based functions up to TR-059, while BNG is applied to Ethernet-based DSL. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:58, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
