U.S. gets behind ENUM Net phone initiative: "The U.S. Commerce Department has recommended that the U.S. join an international electronic numbering domain system called ENUM. ENUM is a mapping protocol that links Internet and telephony systems with a single identifier. It was developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force and being implemented in coordination with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the Internet Architecture Board. A global domain, e164.arpa, has been set aside by the IAB for the system. Under the protocol, each user's phone number would be translated to an ENUM identifier. The number +44 20 7291 5981, for example, would become 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.0.2.4.4.e164.arpa. The ENUM system would then recognize all addresses and numbers associated with that signifier, according to the ITU Web site. .. To date, 13 ITU member countries, including the U.K. , have opted into e164.arpa and are beginning trials to establish ENUM services.." 9:12:07 AM
