A VDSL router is used in VDSL broadband
Internet access to separate a customer's local network from the
VDSL network operator's network. In order to allow multiple network
devices on the internal network to share a single IP
address allocated by the VDSL ISP (Internet service provider), a
VDSL router normally includes a NAT router. A
VDSL router may provide a number of ports
for the local network; one common configuration provides four 100baseT,
100 Mbps Ethernet lines.
A VDSL router may be
integrated with the VDSL modem. In configurations where VDSL is
used to deliver a pay television service, the television set-top
box may provide the VDSL modem.
