A routing area is created in order to define the Office Codes associated with specific geographical locations within a specific area.
The Routing Area is used to describe the location of subscribers for call routing purposes, e.g. to use the right gateway for routing a call.
A new Routing Area is created in order to define the office codes associated with specific geographical locations within a specific area. Once the subscriber has created a routing area, the subscriber can assign it to TKGs (Trunk Groups) and to E.164 Codes. Then the subscriber can use the routing areas in different translation tables to enable correct routing.
During creation or modification of a Routing Area, it is possible to add one or more Office Codes. Please note that the office codes entered here are only for documentation purposes to indicate that this routing area is related to these office codes.
Routing Area name is a string of characters, which means that the names of Routing Areas can begin with either a letter or a digit.
