Universal Access Number


Also known as a "personal number" service, allocates customers a "personal number", separate from the network termination port address (telephone number) of a particular telephone line. Thereby provides a universal personal telecommunications service, reachable at the same number when moving between different fixed (and mobile) lines.

The customer can then control how to handle incoming calls, for example by:

  • directing calls to different network addresses at different times of day
  • automatically sending calls to answering machines at specific times
  • sending data calls to data terminals
  • sending fax calls to fax terminals
  • using other criteria, such as the caller's CLI, to determine where to terminate the call.
