Both intelligent gateways and routers are used in the network, mainly to connect hosts on different subnets. Both of these are hardware facilities, and they can forward packets arriving at the host. There are many things in common between the two devices, but there are still many essential differences between the gateway and the router. The following describes the difference between the gateway and the router.

Many users are not very familiar with the difference between the gateway and the router. There is only a vague impression on the use of the two, so there are many problems in the purchase and use. What are the differences between the gateway and the router? The following small series will introduce the user in detail.

The difference between gateway and router

The difference between gateway and router is introduced – the essence difference introduction

Gateway This device is mainly used to connect two different networks. At the same time, the gateway can communicate with both hosts at the same time. However, the hosts on both sides cannot communicate directly, and it is necessary to pass through the gateway to communicate. The work of the gateway is in the application layer. Simply put, the gateway is to manage the IP of different network segments. When we do VLANs on the switch, we need to make an IP under the default VLAN interface, and this IP is what we call the gateway.

Router It belongs to the network layer device and usually sends data in units of packets. In the sub-interface of the router, there is a role of splitting the broadcast domain, so when we use the switch as a VLAN, we must make a three-layer route on the router. And the IP address we set out on the subinterface of this router is the gateway. Of course, now in our most commonly used Ethernet, the gateway will be degraded into a router.

The difference between gateway and router is introduced – use

Gateway It can be a router, a switch or a PC. To communicate in the same network segment, there is no need to intervene the gateway. Only when the host does not communicate with the local network segment, all the data packets need to be sent to the gateway device, and then forwarded through the gateway device. There are routing processing and so on.

Router It is a network layer system. Routers are generally divided into two categories in the current market. One is a single protocol router and the other is a multi-protocol router. The router can convert the data format and become a necessary device different from the network interconnection between the protocols.

communication method

The remote gateway YET6950WRZ intelligent gateway supports Ethernet, 3G, wifi and other communication methods, which can match a variety of smart home brands, and super coverage of family life scenes.

Industrial 3G routers generally only support traditional Ethernet or 3G communication.

Network Architecture

The intelligent gateway data can be transmitted to the monitoring center through P2P through 3G network transmission, or directly sent to the monitoring center with fixed IP or dynamic domain name through the 3G network, without the need for fixed IP or dynamic domain name.

Industrial 3G router data must be sent directly to the monitoring center with fixed IP or dynamic domain name through the 3G network.

Traditional way of data

Both intelligent gateways and industrial 3G routers can support data transmission.
