       Shared Appearances of a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)
                        Address of Record (AOR)

Abstract

   This document describes the requirements and implementation of a
   group telephony feature commonly known as Bridged Line Appearance
   (BLA) or Multiple Line Appearance (MLA), or Shared Call/Line
   Appearance (SCA).  When implemented using the Session Initiation
   Protocol (SIP), it is referred to as shared appearances of an Address
   of Record (AOR) since SIP does not have the concept of lines.  This
   feature is commonly offered in IP Centrex services and IP Private
   Branch Exchange (IPBX) offerings and is likely to be implemented on
   SIP IP telephones and SIP feature servers used in a business
   environment.  This feature allows several user agents (UAs) to share
   a common AOR, learn about calls placed and received by other UAs in
   the group, and pick up or join calls within the group.  This document
   discusses use cases, lists requirements, and defines extensions to
   implement this feature.  This specification updates RFCs 3261 and
   4235.
