broadband service node (BSN)

Broadband Service Nodes (BSN) are node computers with routing functions that are used in provider networks for network-based IP security services.

A Broadband Service Node is comparable to a router, forms the central node between the access network and the Internet in provider networks, and is thus ideal for implementing security measures. It can be used to implement firewall functions, virtual private networks( VPN) and quality of service features.

BSNs differentiate themselves from conventional routers in terms of computing power, encryption and data throughput, which is not compromised even in the case of computationally intensive IP services such as firewall and encryption in VPNs.
