Topic Last Modified: 2010-05-14

UM IP gateways create a connection between Unified Messaging and your telephone system. They are required for Telex and E.164 dial plans. You don't need a UM IP gateway on UM systems with SIP URI dial plans.

When you create a UM IP gateway, you're telling UM where to accept incoming calls and where to send outgoing calls, and you're telling your telephone system where to send unanswered calls, so the two can communicate with each other.

For more information about how to create a UM IP gateway and forward calls from your telephone system to your UM IP gateway, see Connect UM to Your Telephone System with UM IP Gateways.
