SIP Address Format

After you specify your organization-wide subdomain in Control Hub, Cisco Webex SIP addresses are automatically created. Their format uses .calls.webex.com (for users) and .rooms.webex.com (for Room, Desk, and Board devices). The format for the SIP address is username@example.calls.webex.com or workspacename@example.rooms.webex.com:

  • example is the value that you enter for the subdomain for your Webex organization.

  • username@example is the user ID or email in the Cisco Webex cloud without the top-level domain.

  • workspacename is a custom name that you assign to the Workspace containing a shared device, such as a meeting room or shared space name. For example, Tangram Boardroom or Reception.

Subdomain Value

You can enter any value that you want, but enter a value that is easily recognized as being related to your organization. Follow the guidelines in the Control Hub and choose a subdomain that identifies your organization. Here are some guidelines to follow:

  • The value must be unique and is usually the name of your company.

  • You can enter a combination of letters and numbers for the subdomain (up to 63 characters).

Subdomain Errors and Solutions

  • Invalid subdomain name—You are using unsupported characters. Enter a value with letters and numbers only.

  • Not available. Please try another name—Domain is already in use; try another value and run the check to see if it is available.

Cisco Webex SIP Addresses and Users

Users can find their Cisco Webex SIP address by going to My Profile in Webex Settings at https://settings.webex.com. The assigned SIP address appears below their name.

Webex SIP addresses for users are dialable from any SIP phone with TLS set up. For more information, see Requirements for Business-to-Business (B2B) SIP Calls To and From the Cisco Webex Cloud.

When users call through a directory search, the Cisco Webex SIP addresses are used to route from Webex Calling phones and deliver calls to a user's phone and Cisco Webex Teams app simultaneously.

For Calling in Webex Teams (Unified CM) or Hybrid Calling, the SIP address routes calls that are incoming to the cloud to a specific user (username in the example). For that user's outgoing calls, the Cisco Webex SIP address is used as the caller ID. On the other hand, on-premises directory URI dialing between Calling in Webex Teams (Unified CM) users or Hybrid Calling users rings both the user's Webex Teams app and desk phone.

  • From the caller's perspective, dialing the corporate directory URI results in a call that rings both the Cisco Webex Teams app and the on-premises phone.

  • In certain call scenarios, the Cisco Webex SIP address appears as the caller ID in the call history. Users can call back to the SIP address, in these cases.

  • Companies can choose to use the SIP address as a routing address. We recommend this choice if you use Calling in Webex Teams (Unified CM) and you publish your users' directory URIs publicly as their contactable SIP addresses.

Cisco Webex SIP Addresses and Webex Devices in a Workspace

The Cisco Webex SIP address enables business-to-business calling and Webex SIP address callback. Cisco Webex Workspaces are assigned a Cisco Webex SIP address in the form workspacename@example.rooms.webex.com

For Hybrid Calling for Webex devices, you assign a Room, Desk, or Board device as a Workspace in the Control Hub. Using Hybrid Calling for the room device Workspace means that the cloud-registered device gets its directory number from the premises call control environment and routes all its calls through Cisco Unified Communication Manager. The cloud-registered Webex device uses the existing PSTN infrastructure.
