What is a SIP Endpoint?
SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is a protocol that is used for establishing VoIP calls. A SIP Endpoint is a device or software client that is VoIP enabled and serves as the final destination of a voice call. This can be a software application such as X-Lite or Acrobits, or a physical device such as a PBX providing services to an office. It usually has a unique address, a SIP URI, similar in function as an email or a phone number.
A SIP Endpoint is added to a SIP Trunk that is already created. For instructions on how to add a SIP Trunk, see this article.
