You can manage the Unified Messaging (UM) properties for an Exchange Server 2007 Unified Messaging IP gateway by using the Exchange Management Shell or the Exchange Management Console.
UM IP Gateways
UM IP gateways are created in Active Directory to represent a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) gateway device. UM IP gateways are created in an enabled state. A UM IP gateway establishes a logical link between the IP gateway, the UM dial plan, and a single or multiple UM hunt groups.
An IP gateway performs the conversion between circuit-switched protocols and packet-switched protocols, such as Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and Realtime Transport Protocol (RTP).
Before the IP gateway can process calls, it must be represented by a UM IP gateway. You must then associate the UM IP gateway with a UM dial plan. You can associate a UM IP gateway with one or more UM dial plans by creating one or more UM hunt groups.
