Industrial routers and industrial gateway are used more, but many people do not know about these two devices, for example, do not know what the difference between industrial routers and industrial gateway is, whether they can be replaced. This paper introduces the characteristics of the industrial router and the difference between an industrial router and an industrial gateway.
The Difference Between an Industrial Router and Industrial Gateway
1. Protocol conversion between industrial router and industrial gateway is different
Industrial gateway is more protocol conversion processing, while 5G industrial router is more efficient transparent transmission, simple support Modbus protocol, and MQTT protocol.
2. Data processing of industrial router and industrial gateway is different
Industrial gateway requires more local data processing, especially in the 5G era where there are many applications, industrial routers basically do-little dynamic data processing, mainly routing data transmission.
3. The secondary development of industrial router and industrial gateway is different
Industrial gateway supports data operation and local processing, secondary development, and personalized service configuration. Industrial routers only transmit data efficiently and do not support secondary development.
