Electronic Numbering → ? – Title is inaccurate, it should be determined which title is correct so it can be moved. The most likely candidate is blocked by a redirect page created when it was moved, then for some reason moved back again.

Support[edit]

I have felt for a long time that the term "electronic number" is misleading and have first-hand experience explaining to someone how ENUM is related to VoIP, but not required to make VoIP work simply because of this incorrect terminology. WirelessMike 05:02, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Oppose[edit]

  • Short for 'enumerated' which can be set types in multiple programming languages.

Grammar[edit]

  • I'm really not sure where this should be noted, but the word "biunivocally" is not in the dictionary. Humorously enough, "univocal" is in the dictionary, and the definition from Meriam Webster: "1 : having one meaning only, 2 : UNAMBIGUOUS".

Example of ENUM lookup[edit]

I recently found that SIP Broker was an orphaned article. Therefore, I added some links such as one in this article at the end of this sentence:

The caller uses the telephone to dial the number of another subscriber, which leads to an ENUM lookup (such as is provided by SIP Broker).

This was identified as me spamming and reverted.

Do any think an example of ENUM mapping belongs in this article and if so, how should it best be added?

The revert has been self reverted, the link to SIP Broker has been restored, so it appears this issue is closed. WilliamKF (talk) 23:54, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
