Calling Locations can be assigned to a subscriber to indicate the geographic location of that subscriber. They are used when specific routing has to be done for these subscribers. They can be used to have specific geographic routing of an emergency service or a directory service number.
System Specific Information
Calling Locations consist of a set of codes provisioned on a switch-wide level.
Each subscriber can be associated with a calling location. During translation (in the GNP, only), an E.164 code can have the destination type “Calling location”. In this case, the Calling Location code associated with the originating subscriber is translated in the destination code table (the Nature of Address is set to 'CALLING_LOCATION).
Emergency calls from another switch cannot be routed based on the calling location because the subscriber's location is not passed to Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony.
