Gartner Glossary

DSL/Cable-sharing Residential/Small-office Gateway/Router

This device can be wired or wireless. Similar to a residential gateway/router, this device does not have an integrated DSL modem. It is distinguished by its ability to work with different types of broadband distribution network, such as cable or DSL, and, therefore, has a port allowing for a connection with the output of an external modem (either DSL or cable).
