Historical always phone number was communication unit identifier. Till
recently it was coupled with world hierarchy of phone switches where first
digits mean country code, then city code and local number. With the advent
of IP-telephony and intellectual services this system changes. Now you can
have personal number FVN number.
Usually you have
several phone numbers: work, cell, home and good idea to have one with
automatic switching system to your current place. Now you can have one
universal personal number FVN number.
One phone number is
better to associate with person and not with unit or geographic place.
One number simplifies
way to find you and can give you ability to optimize your communication
FVN (Free Virtual
Number) project main ideas:
Provide issue of unique numbers in all real and virtual networks not
dependent with physical units or geographic locations.
Provide universal call environment in all real and virtual networks.
Provide ability to forward all real numbers to one universal (FVN)
Provide flexible routing and mapping system from universal (FVN) to the
current real number (automatically or manually).
Provide routing optimization between real networks.
1. Unique numbers in all real and virtual networks
In real networks: FVN
numbering plan placed in technological area of E.164 without intersection
with existing real numbers
In virtual networks
we realize centralized registration.
FVN numbers format:
1 00X YYY ZZZZ
X project index
YYY zone number
ZZZZ phone number
2. Universal call
Plenty of separated
regional, home and corporative VoIP, mobile or TDM networks makes difficult
to find current client location.
FVN have a single
meaning in routing.
Variety of VoIP
protocols (SIP/H323) and codecs (g729/g711/gsm/...) makes incompatible
FVN provide all
transformations on flow.
access numbers list (this all for me)
If you have one FVN
number you can order local DID in interesting you region (one or several)
and make mapping all DIDs to FVN. This is the way to realize multiple
virtual point of presence (POP) in regions with only one office.
4. Find current
location intellectual routing (follow me)
FVN allow to specify
all possible phone numbers with check priority. Check sequence can be manual
or automatic with internet web or phone management.
