FAQ
What role does an IoT gateway play in edge computing?

Edge computing involves processing data locally, and an IoT gateway is a key component in this process. It collects data from IoT devices and sensors and preprocesses it right on the premises.

Can an IoT gateway work with legacy systems and devices?

Yes, IoT gateways can work with legacy systems. It’s especially true for universal gateways like MINEW and LoRaWAN.

How can IoT gateways contribute to data processing and analytics at the edge?

Some IoT gateways enable edge computing capabilities. It means they can run applications and analytics locally, minimizing latency and reducing the volume of data transmitted to the cloud.

What are the types of gateway in IoT?

Types of IoT gateways include cloud-based gateways, edge gateways, protocol gateways, security gateways, universal gateways, and beyond.
