All, here in Austria, "production status" means to us that: - we have a contract with the regulator where operations of the ENUM zone is assigned to us - a company dedicated to provide ENUM registry services. - ENUM delegations show up in 3.4.e164.arpa. - we have production quality registry and DNS systems at the same availability and performance levels as the local ccTLD system in place (actually, it's even more advanced than the ccTLD system) - we have registrars offering commercially available ENUM based products on the market - we have a "watertight" legal framework about registration, validation and registrar relationship - we have a number range created by the regulator where ENUM entries are obligatory (+43 780) - and are authoritative for routing the calls even in the PSTN. - we are charging delegation fees So that means: - Anybody owning a phone number in Austria can approach one of our registrars, and register the ENUM domain corresponding to his numbers. - Anybody can approach one of our registrars, and register a "+43 780" number - as long as the ENUM domain is available, the number is available as well (like a xTLD [no, i don't neccessarily mean .xxx ;)] - Any company which wants to provide ENUM based services to it's customers can sign up as a registrar with enum.at If anything is still unclear, don't hesitate to contact me. cheers Alex Mayrhofer enum.at
