Integrating Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Unified Messaging (UM) with your company's telephony network is one of the most significant deployment challenges when you are deploying Unified Messaging. Interoperating with Exchange 2007 Unified Messaging will depend on your specific Private Branch eXchange (PBX) or IP PBX configurations and may also require that you install IP gateways, purchase additional PBX hardware, or configure and enable features on your PBXs or IP PBXs. In some cases, the PBX may cause reduced functionality or limitations in the Unified Messaging features. This is especially true for IP PBXs. This topic discusses the manufacturers and specific models of IP gateways that you can configure to support Microsoft Exchange 2007 Unified Messaging (UM).
|We recommend that all customers who plan to deploy Exchange 2007 Unified Messaging obtain the assistance of a Unified Messaging specialist. They will help make sure that there is a smooth transition to Exchange 2007 Unified Messaging from a legacy voice mail system. Performing a new deployment or upgrading a legacy voice mail system requires significant knowledge about PBXs and Exchange 2007 Unified Messaging. For more information about how to contact a Unified Messaging specialist, see the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Unified Messaging (UM) Specialists Web site.|
There are many models and manufacturers of PBXs, IP gateways, and IP PBXs. However, there are basically two configurations for IP gateway devices:
- IP PBX A single hardware device.
- PBX (legacy) and an IP gateway Two separate hardware devices.
Dialogic and AudioCodes IP gateways have been tested and are supported for Exchange 2007 Unified Messaging.
