Voxbone has confirmed the official ENUM delegation in the e164.arpa ENUM database for the United Nations E.164 country code +888 numbering range. The UN numbering range +888 can now be called via SIP based on a query to the e164.arpa ENUM database.
The main benefit of ENUM telephone mapping for mobile operators and service providers that want to enable calling to the U.N. via the +888 number is to be reachable anywhere in the world with the same number – and via the best and cheapest route.
