ENUM is a protocol that is the result of work of the Internet Engineering Task Force's (IETF's) Telephone Number Mapping Working Group. The charter of this working group was to define a Domain Name System (DNS)-based architecture and protocols for mapping a telephone number to a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) which can be used to contact a resource associated with that number.
How to Request ENUM Delegation
- All submitted requests will be announced to the enum-announce public mailing list.
- The RIPE NCC will pass all requests for evaluation to the International Telecommunication Union, Telecommunication Standardization Sector, Telecommunication Standardization Bureau (ITU-T TSB).
- Information on how the ITU-T TSB handles ENUM requests can be found on the ENUM Delegations page at the ITU website.
- The RIPE NCC will only evaluate the technical setup of a request only after ITU-T TSB's approval.
We urge anyone interested in discussing ENUM matters that are not DNS related to contact the ITU-T TSB.
