A Brouter is short for Bridge Router and is a device that functions as both a router and a bridge. It may support multiple protocols by routing routable packets and bridging non-routable packets. Or, it may support a variety of bridging requirements while providing routing. A Brouter knows how to route specific types of packets, such as Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) packets. Any other packets it receives are simply forwarded to other network(s) connected it, which is the bridge function.
