(also gateway, internet of things gateway)
An IoT gateway serves as a way for smart IoT (Internet of Things) devices to get access to the internet. It can be in the form of a virtual platform or a piece of hardware. An IoT gateway connects smart devices, sensors, and IoT modules to the internet and the cloud. So, with an IoT gateway, devices can use the internet. The most widely used and known example of an IoT gateway is a router — a physical device that allows your phones, computers, and other smart devices to connect to your home Wi-Fi network. You can think of IoT gateways as bridges between devices that need an internet connection and the internet or the cloud.
