GNE: Gateway Network Element
Gateway Network Element (GNE) refers to a Network Element (NE) that provides connections to other Network Element in most telecommunication and network systems, such as SONET/SDH/DLC, etc. GNE has a list of nests connected to it and their TIDs in the form of a route table. Whenever an input message comes to the GNE, it will route it to the appropriate NE using the TID in the route table.
