Lots of ways

1) Use ICM Region to put organize areacodes into various reasons. Then in the routing script, you can check the region and route accordingly

2) In ICM, without region, you can check for first 3 letters of ANI and then route accordingly. (If node - Left (call.CallinglineID,3) should give u the area code.

3) Use database and do a sql lookup using ICM or using IPIVR. create a table with columns areacode, destination etc. Then, you can query the table and get the destination and refer that in the ICM script

4)Instead of using database, the above can be done in .XML file also.

I gave u 3 other suggestions other than the database integration.


Just use region editor in ICM and map your area codes to regions.

I agree with the suggestion to use the Regions.


The only thing to check is how up to date the entries in your ICM are. When I looked into this a few years ago, the area codes in ICM were well out of sync with what was published and I had to do a large number of updates.
