This table provides the primary routing mechanism for the global numbering plan by defining E.164 number blocks and the “destinations” to which they should be routed.
Normally, the necessary entries in this table will be set up by the Quick Add Business Group feature, but occasionally it may need to be done manually.
To add the necessary entries, the administrator goes to the E.164 codes folder under Global Translation and Routing, and inputs the appropriate values, as follows:
Parent topic: Destination Codes
- Destination Code: These are the leading digits of an E.164 number (1561923 would be appropriate for the example of the previous section).
- Nature of Address: Must match the nature of address specified in the PAC table entry (previous section). If the PAC table translates the dialed number into an “international” number form, then the correct choice here is “international.” If the office code consists of 6 digits containing only area code and office code, the number type should be set to NATIONAL, which means area code and office code without the country code. If the office code includes the country code (for example, 1561923) then the number type should be INTERNATIONAL.
- Traffic Type: Some calls may need to be marked as traffic of a special type (for example, emergency call). The type is normally set to NONE, which means this entry applies to all traffic types. If a value other than NONE is selected here, the call is assigned that traffic type, which can affect later routing decisions.
- Class of Service: Normally left blank for entries related to inbound calls. If the table entry were being used to define outbound routing for a particular subscriber class of service, it would be entered here. A blank in this field means this entry applies to all classes of service.
- Routing Areas: Normally left blank for entries related to inbound calls. If the table entry were being used to define outbound routing for a particular routing area, it would be entered here. A blank in this field means this entry applies to all routing areas.
- Destination Type: For an entry related to inbound calls, this will usually be “Home DN”, meaning this number terminates on a Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony subscriber, rather than being routed to another switch via a gateway.
- Destination Name: Select from the list of options the appropriate home DN number office code. If the destination type is set to “Home DN” the destination name must match one of the home DN office codes previously defined..
