A gateway is a device in a telecommunications network used to connect to another network. In other words, it links two networks that use different protocols and architectures. The main function of a gateway is to translate traffic from one protocol to another, generally by using Network Address Translation (NAT). This allows for IP masquerading when one connection and one public IP address is shared between several devices connecting to the Internet from a LAN.
An endpoint device, also known as a terminal or end user device, is any remote computer connected to a network. Some of the most common examples are PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones and TVs, application and database servers, switches and routers, etc.
