Access nodes are the demarcation point between the subscriber and the service provider network. They are Ethernet Layer 2 devices usually located in central offices, as part of outside plant, or in the basements of multitenant buildings and are owned and managed by the service provider. The access nodes provide different UNI options, subscriber and service multiplexing, and special functions for supporting triple-play services.
