Broadband Remote Access Server (B-RAS)

Definition - What does Broadband Remote Access Server (B-RAS) mean?

A broadband remote access server (B-RAS) is a specialized server based at an Internet service provider (ISP) network that facilitates the convergence of multiple Internet traffic sources. These sources include cable, DSL, Ethernet or broadband wireless. B-RAS converges them into a single network that routes traffic to and from digital subscriber line access multiplexers.

Techopedia explains Broadband Remote Access Server (B-RAS)

A broadband remote access server routes traffic to and from broadband remote access devices, including DSL access multiplexers and the ISP's network. The key benefits of using broadband remote access servers are:

  • They provide a single point for change control
  • B-RAS is a common, access-agnostic operational model
  • It is multiservice access node (MSAN) independent
If network changes are required, it’s better to make changes at a single B-RAS server than at dozens of devices.
