Protocol Conversion Gateway Market: Overview

Protocol converter gateways are devices or software used to convert proprietary or standard protocol of one device to the protocol suitable for the other device to achieve interoperability. Protocol converters are available as both virtual software and physical hardware. The hardware or software is usually placed on the end-user device. Physical hardware are installed in headquarters and branches, whereas virtual software is installed in private and public clouds. Physical hardware installation is done using an automated process called bootstrapping.

Protocol conversion gateways play a crucial role in how a company organizes work, and involves computer and human resources. A widely accepted framework is to have a convertor gateway that organizes the network by calling upon human and computing resources to perform actual tasks. Protocol conversion gateways support software platform hosting virtual functions such as routing, traffic steering, switching, Quality of Service (QoS), firewall, and network address translation (NAT). It supports two deployment options: a branch appliance/physical hardware, and a software image that can be loaded on a server or virtual machine. These gateways are also called interface converter, which enables hosts that use diverse high-level protocols on the communication network to collaborate with each other to complete various distributed applications.
