do you have a context for it, like where its setup or what its doing?

I've never heard that term myself, so I can only guess. But generally a gateway is a type of on the fly converter, taking one kind of data and sending it to another type of system in real time so the two can communicate. IP based would most likely mean that its using the IP protocol.

As for exactly what its doing, I'd need to find out what type of environment its setup in to even create a guess. Maybe its a fancy type of router?
