Proof of concept installation of NW Gateway 2.0 : IW_BEP to be installed on backend or not ?



We are running SAP ECC6 EHP5.0/based on Netweaver 7.02.

We are thinking of deploying sap Netweaver gateway 7.02, then some external consultants would deploy their applications (Mobile approvals)

As the sap basis administrator, I started to read the abundant documentation regarding the installation of SAP Netweaver Gateway 2.0, especially

the deployment scenarios offered with NW Gateway 2.0 SPS6

Since it is merely a Proof OF Concept, we intend not to deploy an add-on on our existing DEV system , following the scenario Central Hub Deployment — Development in SAP NetWeaver Gateway System,IW_BEP would be deployed directly on the Gateway system ... but I am not sure and a bit confused.

The documentation also states that "You can combine this deployment scenario with an installation of IW_BEP in the backend system."

Does it mean that IW_BEP would potentially need to be installed on our ECC6 DEV system and on the gateway ?

Thank you

Best Regards
