  • Communication Gateways are used to connect two or more communication networks. They filter message traffic because messages pass through from one source destined to another source elsewhere. Communication gateways are used in broadcasting facilities, business organizations, and entertainment venues.
    Communication Gateways provide connectivity between devices that wouldn’t have been possible. It provides a point of isolation between two largely independent systems and permits interconnection of legacy systems with newer products.
    The best known manufacturer is AMX. Its featured products, the NetLinx ZigBee Gateway and SIP Communications Gateway are the best selling integrated controllers.

    Customer Testimonials

    "We have been a regular customer of Clary Business Machines when it comes to purchasing the office equipments. Few weeks ago, we had to make arrangements for a grand conference in which remote participants were to take part as well. Like always, we didn't have to hover through the list of video-conferencing equipment. I gave them a call & Sean guided me well to make the right purchase"
