It looks like our telecom sector is bursting with ideas. Today morning DigiMouth featured a news item wherein the Department of Telecom (DoT) had decided to offer IMEI numbers in turn saving over 25 million handsets from being dysfunctional. Well it seems like even Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has a basket full of ideas.
TRAI would be teaming up with US-based Telcordia Technologies Inc. to introduce ENUM (Electronic Number Mapping) services.
Well for the ignorant ones ENUM technology bridges your telephone system and the Internet. The technology helps convert traditional telephone numbers into a universal identifier for varied Internet services. The ENUM technology lets subscribers to use their mobile numbers as an email address. So two individuals simply need to exchange contact numbers to explore the undying possibilities of the Internet.
Though it is gong to take a while for Indians to implement the US will witness the launch by next year. Experts the world over believe that the juxtaposition of ENUM technology and VoIP would be a boon to the telecom world.
