Enum, or Telephone Number Mapping, aims to do for phone numbers of any kind what the Domain Name System did for the World Wide Web. BBC is reporting that UK's Enum directory has begun and it will be run by Nominet — the administrator of the .uk top-level domain.
Jay Daley, technology director at Nominet, said the directory would be populated with numbers for the UK's voice over IP (voip) networks that route telephone calls through the net. "It's going to change the business model for communication providers quite seriously," said Daley. Germany, Australia and Ireland, have already started work on their national Enum directories.
