What is a SIP Address: V1 VoIP Shows You

A SIP address is a lot like an email address in that it also serves as a locator of the user. SIP addresses even look similar to email addresses. Like email addresses, they are comprised of two parts: a username, and a domain. For example, if your name was Tom, you might have the following identical SIP and email addresses:

Tom@awesomeness.com
SIP communication would be routed to Tom at his SIP address sip:tom@awesomeness.com as email would be sent to Tom at his Email address mailto:tom@awesomeness.com.

What a SIP Address Is

Your SIP address allows you to participate in SIP based communication over the Internet. SIP can be used to initiate a variety of communication formats ranging from a phone call to collaborative conferences over existing Internet connections without the need of traditional telephone services.

What makes SIP even more powerful is that it is personal like an email address. While a telephone number is registered to a specific device, a SIP address follows the person it belongs to. This gives SIP users access to new features that standard landline telephone services simply do not offer. With the increasing prevalence of Internet telephony in the corporate and consumer markets comes the gradual migration from the use of telephone numbers to the use of SIP addresses.

How to Get a SIP Address

The easiest way to obtain a SIP address is by creating an account with an online service. Like creating an email account with Google or Yahoo, you will be provided with an address (i.e. yourname@gmail.com or yourname@yahoo.com). However, your SIP service provider may allow you to create SIP addresses within your own domain as well (i.e. tom@awesomeness.com). As a SIP providers, we at V1 VoIP allow customers to use the registered domain name of their companies to create SIP addresses free of charge.

People using standard telephones can reach you on your SIP address, all you need is a regular telephone number which forwards to your address. If you want to call people who are using regular telephones, your SIP service needs the ability to call out to regular telephone numbers, and V1 VoIP can provide you with one or both of these services.

a Guide to What is Your SIP Address

Locating call recipients and talking with them on their different user agents is done by using a SIP address. If you are thinking that it sounds like an email address, you are kind of right! SIP addresses are often indistinguishable from email addresses. Think of a SIP address as an email address that allows you to access your real time IP communications.

A SIP address is used to find the user’s network location so that they can be reached anywhere. SIP addresses are registered to the actual end user as opposed to their different devices. So if a user has a desktop, laptop and mobile phone, the SIP address is used only for the user as well as their multiple devices. The adoption of SIP addresses will hopefully spell an end to contact information that only corresponds to a specific device or location.

SIP addresses differ greatly from phone numbers. With phone numbers, you are assigned one to your home, a different one to your work and a third to your mobile. With SIP addresses, you can have only one contact ‘number’ or address and this number follows you wherever you go and whatever device you want to be reached. So regardless of someone tries you on your desk phone or your mobile phone, you are reachable by your SIP address.

Using a registration credentials, V1 VoIP can assign as many devices as you need with your own address. Contact us now to learn more about how we do this and get started.
