This document defines a mechanism by which a Session Initiation
Protocol (SIP) server acting as a traditional Private Branch Exchange
(PBX) can register with a SIP Service Provider (SSP) to receive phone
calls for SIP User Agents (UAs).  In order to function properly, this
mechanism requires that each of the Addresses of Record (AORs)
registered in bulk map to a unique set of contacts.  This requirement
is satisfied by AORs representing phone numbers regardless of the
domain, since phone numbers are fully qualified and globally unique.
This document therefore focuses on this use case.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
