How do I connect to a SIP endpoint?
Chime allows meetings to be connected to SIP meetings so that both Chime and SIP participants can collaborate in one meeting. There are two ways to connect to a SIP meeting:
Using a “Smart URL”
If you create a meeting whose ID is sip-<sip address> the meeting you join will automatically join a SIP endpoint if one is available. This works especially well when you’re sending out invites to people who don’t have SIP clients but wish to join SIP meetings.
Using the “Add Conference” button
Clicking the Add Conference button in Chime presents a panel that allows adding a SIP conference directly into a running Chime Meeting:
Select Type “SIP” and enter the Meeting ID for the SIP address you wish to connect to. Click connect and the SIP meeting will be added as a participant in the Chime Meeting.
NOTE: While screen sharing from Chime will be sent across to SIP, document sharing will not at this time. This will be addressed in a future release.
