SIP registrar configuration

A SIP registrar accepts SIP REGISTER requests from SIP phones for the purpose of updating a location database with this contact information. This database can then become a SIP location service that can be used by SIP proxy severs and redirect servers to locate SIP clients. As shown below, SIP clients send REGISTER requests to the SIP registrar.
