Configuring Cisco Unified Communications Manager for the
NovaTec TransNova S3 Voice Gateway


This document describes how to configure Cisco Unified Communications Manager systems to use the NovaTec TransNova® S3 SIP Voice Gateway (S3).

NovaTec publishes complete technical information for this voice gateway on its website and in the online help for its TransNova configuration and TraceInfo Client software. This document emphasizes configuration that you must do within Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.

Calls between ISDN endpoints on the same S3 get routed through the Cisco Unified Communications Manager, so call detail records (CDRs) can get collected.The configuration steps that are shown in this document ensure that all calls transit the Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
