is a service that you can implement to make 2 .net application communicate ...
here is the microsoft doc that explains in short how it works :

In general terms, its a protocol converter.

Any two communicators which uses a different protocol, needs to communicate via a gateway (which actually converts one communication protocol to another).

It can be a service gateway or a payment gateway etc. for example.

I like to know what Gateway and how it is working? How is helps to communicate two applications?
From wiki:
A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another network. On the Internet, a node or stopping point node or a host (end-point) node. Both the computers of Internet users and the computers that serve pages to users are host nodes, while the nodes that connect the networks in between are gateways. For example, the computers that control traffic between company networks or the computers used by internet service providers (ISPs) to connect users to the internet are gateway nodes.
