    ENUM & VOIP ENUM Testing In Full Swing
    posted by michael on Sunday January 12 2003, @09:36AM

    Richard Shockey has posted a list of "more or less 'official' ENUM or ENUM trial related Web Sites" to the IETF's ENUM Working Group mailing list. A re-organized and HTMLized version of that list follows. Looks like there are trials in many of the major telephone markets...

    ENUM is a project designed to link IP numbers (internet resources) to telephone numbers, with vast usability (and privacy!) implications. As NeuStar explains it,

    ENUM (RFC 2916) is the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) protocol that will assist in the convergence of the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and the IP network; it is the mapping of a telephone number from the PSTN to Internet services--telephone number in, URL out. ENUM was developed as a solution to the question of how to find services on the Internet using only a telephone number, and how telephones, which have an input mechanism limited to twelve keys on a keypad, can be used to access Internet services.

    ENUM projects in
  • Austria
  • Australia
  • China
  • France
  • Germany
  • Korea
  • The Netherlands
  • Switzerland
  • UK; more UK
  • United States
  • Other ENUM Sources

  • the ITU-T's web site
  • Some information on trials
  • RIPE NCC's web site
  • Undated list of delegations in e164.arpa. Current accuracy uncertain.

    You can test ENUM yourself
    by KarlAuerbach on Sunday January 12 2003, @06:36PM (#10961)
    User #3243 Info | http://www.cavebear.com/

    If you want to use ENUM yourself, get a few SIP based softphones and the SIP call management software - all of this is available in open source form from http://www.vovida.org/ [vovida.org]

    VOCAL 1.4 and 1.5 support ENUM as part of your SIP dial-plan.
