Question
What is a Residential Gateway?
Answer

Residential Gateway

A Residential Gateway is a device that connects an in-home network to a broadband connection, enabling communication and data transfer among networked devices in the home and across the Internet. Typically, residential gateways combine the functions of a router, hub, and modem for Internet access and computer connectivity. More advanced models also contain PBX-type functionality for advanced telephone capabilities in the home, as well as the ability to bring in and route audio, video, and networked games.
