Introduced with Sametime 8.5.2, Sametime Unified Telephony Lite lets you use your computer to call any device that can be reached through a SIP connection, such as a desk phone, a computer's web cam, or a conference bridge device in a room down the hall. When your company sets up Sametime Unified Telephony Lite, an administrator maps your phone number to your Sametime account.

Table 2. Sametime Connect client and Sametime Unified Telephony Lite client
To use the Sametime Unified Telephony Lite client, you must be logged in to the Sametime Connect client; you can use the stand-alone version or the version that is embedded in Lotus Notes. Here, Heather Reeds is using the stand-alone Connect client. Heather needs to call into a video conference hosted on a device in her company's Rochester office. With Sametime Unified Telephony Lite, she can make that call right from Sametime.

Table 3. Create a new Sametime Phonebook Entry
First, Heather will create a Phonebook entry for the video device so she won't need to dial the number every time she wants to join a call. The Sametime Phonebook is available to SUT Lite users for recording phone numbers and SIP URI addresses.
Call options > Sametime Phonebook
Heather elects to add a new entry.
Create a new Phonebook entry
She provides a descriptive name, and enters a phone number, or in this case, a SIP URI.
A SIP URI is an address for a SIP-based device. Because a video conferencing bridge cannot answer a telephone like a person can, it's called with a SIP URI instead of a phone number.

So, she'll save that entry into her phonebook.
Once it's in her phone book, she has the option to show it within her Sametime contact list so she doesn't have to open the Phonebook every time she wants to call into a conference--she can initiate the call right from the Contacts list.
Click Show a Contact List
Heather is going to add this to her group, Rochester Office.
Click Rochester Office
Table 4. Initiate the call
Now Heather has that entry under the Rochester Office in her contacts. She can dial out to the Rochester video endpoint now. In her Sametime Connect client, she has multiple ways to initiate the call.
The simplest is to select Team meeting from her contact list.
Select Team meeting
Then click the Video Call icon.
Click Video call icon
Ah, her colleague Wilson is already dialed into the conference. Hey there, Wilson!
Note: The user experience is consistent with the other audio-video experiences within the Sametime family.
