SIP-Address like sip:email@example.com
If you want to call other users and to be callable, you are best off with a 'human readable address' (SIP-Address), which in essence, looks just like an email address. The SIP-Address can be used by other users to call you. Similarly, you can use the SIP address of your friends and family to call them. For example, sip:firstname.lastname@example.org is the protocol (SIP) and address (email@example.com) used to call the author of Ekiga.

This is implemented by dialing a special prefix number and then the number of the receipitant (on the 'other' service).
