North American Numbering Plan

North American Numbering Plan (NANP) telephone numbering plan consists of twenty- five distinct regions in twenty countries primarily in North America, including the Caribbean. Out of a few North American countries, such as Mexico, is not part of NANP.

The NANP was initially been devised within the 1940s by AT&T for the Bell System and freelance telephone operators in North America to unify the various native list plans that had been established within the preceding decades. AT&T continued to administer the list arrange till the breakup of the Bell System, once administration was delegated to the NANP, a service that has been procured from the personal sector by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) within the US.

At first, states divided into various area codes were given area codes with a one within the second position, and areas that coated entire states or provinces were allotted codes with zero because of the middle digit; but, the first 50s abandoned this rule.

At first, states divided into various area codes were given area codes with a one within the second position, and areas that coated entire states or provinces were allotted codes with zero because of the middle digit; but, the first 50s abandoned this rule.

In the late 1980s and early 90s, the NANP enforced job procedures that needed all long-distance calls at intervals a vicinity code to be prefixed with the world code, in a shot to create it potential to assign central-office prefixes with zero or one within the middle position (except for N11), which might well be wrong taken by the native telephone switch to be the world code. Because it had nearly run out of area codes mistreatment the comprehensive assignment strategies, this swollen the number pool for every code by an almost universal fraction and conjointly allowed for the later addition of area codes with middle digits apart from zero or one.

It is requiring a one to be dialled before the complete variety in some areas conjointly provided for area codes of the shape N10, like 210 within the urban centre, Texas, area and 410 in Maryland. Therefore, somebody job from San Jose, California, to LA. Before the modification would have dialled 213-555-0123 and when the modification 1-213- 555-0123, that permissible the employment of 213 as an exchange prefix within the San Jose area. The preceding one conjointly ideally indicates a toll call; but, this can be inconsistent across the NANP as a result of the Federal Communications Commission has left it to the U.S. state public utilities commissions to control for ancient landlines, and it's since become moot for mobile phones and digital VoIP services that currently supply nationwide job while not the additional digit.

For example, 234-235-5678 could be a valid sign with code 234, headquarters prefix (exchange) 235, and number type 5678. The number 234-911-5678 is invalid, as a result of the headquarters code should not be within the type N11. 314-159-2653 is invalid, as a result of the workplace code should not begin with one. 123-234-5678 is invalid, as a result of the NPA should not start with zero or one.

The country job code for all countries collaborating within the NANP is one. In international format, a NANP number ought to be listed as +19995550100, wherever 999 stands sure the world code. Every three-digit code features a capability of seven,919,900 telephone numbers:

  • NXX might begin solely with the digits [2–9], providing a base of eight million numbers: (8 × a hundred × 10000).

  • However, to avoid confusion with the N11 codes, the last two digits of NXX cannot each be one.[citation needed]

  • Even though there is widespread usage of NXX 555 for fictional telephone numbers, the single such numbers currently explicitly reserved for fictional use square measure 555-0100 through 555-0199, with the remaining 555 numbers discharged for actual assignment as info numbers.

  • In individual geographical region codes, many different NXX prefixes square measure typically not assigned: the domestic area code(s), adjacent domestic area codes and overlays, area codes reserved for future relief near , business testing codes (generally NXX 958 and 959) and exceptional service codes (such as NXX 950 and 976).

Various workplace codes inbound arrange square measures are deliberately not issued; as an example, numbers 212718-xxxx, wherever 212 and 718 square measure each big apple town space codes, a square measure usually avoided to forestall confusion between a district code and an equally numbered local exchange within the same region. 958-XXXX and 959-XXXX square measure typically take a look at numbers. victimisation zero or one because the 1st digit of a district code or seven-digit local range is invalid, as could be a nine because the middle digit of a section code; these are trunk prefixes or reserved for NANP list arrange growth. Lists of exchanges in a private code (posted by CNAC in Canada, NANP within the United States) all list varied prefixes as deliberately not issued
