Cisco Unified Communications Manager to provide a unique numbering plan specific to countries outside North America. You need a CCO access for download this software.

Jeff, in addition to the previous post, please take the opportunity to review the document at the following link. Although it refers to 5.1.x to same will still apply, I could not find a document specific to v6.0:-

It provides details of where to find the DialPlan, and also detailed information on to install it in your CCM cluster.

Hope this helps.

Seasons Greetings

Allan.

Great, Thanks for your help

Jeff

That was quick! After informing Cisco of the above errors in November 2011, all the problems were fixed about 8 weeks later.

Both the referenced HTML page and the PDF document have been updated to incorporate all of the above changes and additions.

In other news, Ofcom recently (December 2011) issued an Errata to the UK National Telephone Numbering Plan correcting spelling mistakes for nine place names in the UK area code list.

Most of these errors were introduced in the April 2003 version of the number plan (though some of the errors existed before that time).

The corrected names are detailed at: http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/telecoms/numbering/ and below.

Area Code | Current Geographic Area Name | Corrected Geographic Area Name |
---|---|---|

01271 | Barnstable | Barnstaple |

01284 | Bury-St-Edmunds | Bury St Edmunds |

01286 | Caernarvon | Caernarfon |

01289 | Berwick-on-Tweed | Berwick-upon-Tweed |

015395 | Grange-Over-Sands | Grange-over-Sands |

01559 | Llandyssul | Llandysul |

01877 | Callandar | Callander |

01889 | Rugely | Rugeley |

01934 | Weston-Super-Mare | Weston-super-Mare |

There's some errors in the above documents and the data is several years out of date.

There is an error in the following text:

In the UK, local subscriber numbers can be 5, 6, 7, or 8 digits long, which depends on the area code. The UKNP containsfourroute patterns that overlap, for local access.

The text should read as follows:

In the UK, local subscriber numbers can be4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 digits long, which depends on the area code. The UKNP containsfiveroute patterns that overlap, for local access.

Add "4,". Change "four" to "five".

There is an item missing from the table:

Number | Route Pattern |
---|---|

LOCAL-5-DIGIT | [2-9]XXXX |

LOCAL-6-DIGIT | [2-9]XXXXX |

LOCAL-7-DIGIT | [2-9]XXXXXX |

LOCAL-8-DIGIT | [2-9]XXXXXXX |

Add the extra line at the beginning of the table as follows:

Number | Route Pattern |
---|---|

LOCAL-4-DIGIT | [2-3]XXX |

LOCAL-5-DIGIT | [2-9]XXXX |

LOCAL-6-DIGIT | [2-9]XXXXX |

LOCAL-7-DIGIT | [2-9]XXXXXX |

LOCAL-8-DIGIT | [2-9]XXXXXXX |

Add the new text "LOCAL-4-DIGIT [2-3]XXX" to the beginning of the table.

In the details after this text:

"For example, a gateway in a 2-digit area code with 8-digit subscribers has this filter:"

there is an error in the example code:

(LOCAL-5-DIGIT DOES-NOT-EXIST AND LOCAL-6-DIGIT DOES-NOT-EXIST AND LOCAL-7-DIGIT DOES-NOT-EXIST)

The text should read as detailed below:

(LOCAL-4-DIGIT DOES-NOT-EXIST AND

LOCAL-5-DIGIT DOES-NOT-EXIST AND LOCAL-6-DIGIT DOES-NOT-EXIST AND

LOCAL-7-DIGIT DOES-NOT-EXIST)

Add "LOCAL-4-DIGIT DOES-NOT-EXIST AND" to the beginning of the example.

There are two errors in the following text:

For example, calls from Reading (118) toNettlebed(1491), Maidenhead (1628),Ascot(1276), Bracknell (1344), Aldershot (1252), Basingstoke (1256) and Newbury (1635) are charged at the local rate.

These two area codes changed name in 2003:

**01491**: Nettlebed changed name to**Henley-on-Thames**.**01276**: Ascot changed name to**Camberley**.

The text should read as follows:

For example, calls from Reading (118) toHenley-on-Thames(1491), Maidenhead (1628),Camberley(1276), Bracknell (1344), Aldershot (1252), Basingstoke (1256) and Newbury (1635) are charged at the local rate.

Correct the names for these two area codes.

The following text is incomplete:

The OR statements appear when you add a new Clause to the filter. SeeAppendix D - Five-digit Subscriber Numbersfor lists of area codes with 5-digit subscribers.

The corrected text should read as follows:

The OR statements appear when you add a new Clause to the filter. SeeAppendix D - Five-digit Subscriber Numbersfor lists of area codes with 5-digit subscribers andAppendix E - Four-digitSubscriber Numbersfor lists of area codes with 4-digit subscribers.

Correct the text.

The following text is incomplete:

The UK PSTN does not have a uniform structure like the NANP. Area codes can be 2, 3, 4 or 5 digits; subscriber numbers can be 5, 6, 7, or 8 digits; and service codes can be 3, 4, 5, or 6 digits. National numbers can be 10 or 11 digits (including the leading 0).

The corrected text should read as follows:

The UK PSTN does not have a uniform structure like the NANP. Area codes can be 2, 3, 4 or 5 digits; subscriber numbers can be4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 digits; and service codes can be 3, 4, 5, or 6 digits. National numbers can be 10 or 11 digits (including the leading 0)and there are two 8 digit numbers (0800 1111 and

0845 4647).

Add "4,". Add wording about the two 0800 and 0845 special cases.

In the following text:

"These are the rules for geographic numbers:"

there are some minor changes to make towards the end of this list:

2-digit area codes have 8-digit subscribers.

3-digit area codes have 7-digit subscribers.

4-digit area codes have 6-digit subscribers.

Some 4-digit area codes have both 5- and 6-digit subscribers.

5-digit area codes have 5-digit subscribers.

**Some**5-digit area codes overlap with 4-digit area codes.

The corrected text reads as follows:

2-digit area codes have 8-digit subscribers.

3-digit area codes have 7-digit subscribers.

4-digit area codes have 6-digit subscribers.

Some 4-digit area codes have both 5- and 6-digit subscribers.

5-digit area codes have 5-digit subscribers.

**One 5-digit area code has both 4- and 5-digit subscribers.****All**5-digit code areas overlap with 4-digit area codes.

The wording is changed in one rule and there is an additional rule.

Two examples are missing from the table:

Access | Area Code | Subscriber | Place |
---|---|---|---|

0 | 16977 | XXXXX | Brampton 5-digit |

0 | 16977 | XXXX | Brampton 4-digit |

Add the above examples to the table.

The Brampton 016977 area code has both four-digit and five-digit subscriber numbers.

These new number ranges are missing from the table:

Access | SABC | Type | Length |
---|---|---|---|

0 | 300/302/303/306/330/333/343/344/345/370/371/372 | UK wide | 11 |

Add this extra number range.

The following table entry contains an error:

Access | SABC | Type | Length |
---|---|---|---|

0 | 55X/58X | Corporate | 11 |

The correction is as follows:

Access | SABC | Type | Length |
---|---|---|---|

0 | 55 | Corporate | 11 |

Correct the data for this number range.

The following number ranges have changed since 2003:

Access | SABC | Type | Length |
---|---|---|---|

0 | 77X/78X/79X | Mobiles | 11 |

This entry should read as follows:

Access | SABC | Type | Length |
---|---|---|---|

0 | 71XX*/72XX*/73XX*/74XX/75XX/7624/77XX/78XX/79XX | Mobiles | 11 |

Add the new number ranges.

***Note:** 71XX, 72XX and 73XX are not yet in service.

The following number ranges have changed since 2003:

Access | SABC | Type | Length |
---|---|---|---|

0 | 844/845 | Local Rate | 11 |

This entry should read as follows:

Access | SABC | Type | Length |
---|---|---|---|

0 | 842/843/844 | Special Rate | 11 |

0 | 845 | Lower Special Rate | 11 |

Correct the data for this number range.

The following number ranges have changed since 2003:

Access | SABC | Type | Length |
---|---|---|---|

0 | 870/871 | National Rate | 11 |

This entry should read as follows:

Access | SABC | Type | Length |
---|---|---|---|

0 | 870 | Higher Special Rate | 11 |

0 | 871/872/873 | Lower Premium Rate | 11 |

Correct the data for this number range.

There is no such tariff as "local rate". This entry:

NHS Direct—08454647 (local rate)

should be reworded to something like:

NHS Direct—0845 4647 (Lower Special Rate)

Correct the wording.

This new number range is missing from the table:

Service Codes | Services |
---|---|

116XXX | National Helplines |

Add this extra number range.

There is one example missing from the following data:

Category | Numbers* | Example |

Add the additional number ranges.

**Note: **In the other Cisco UK Numbering Plan document, these are referred to as: LOCALRATE-ACCESS, LOCALRATE-SUBSCRIBER, NATIONALRATE-ACCESS and NATIONALRATE-SUBSCRIBER with only one hyphen.

**Note:** It is now illegal in the UK to use the terms "local rate" and "national rate" to describe these numbers in advertising as the price of calling them is higher than calling a normal geographic number.

These new number ranges, allocated in 2008, are missing from the table:

Category | Numbers* | Example |
---|---|---|

UK-WIDE-ACCESS | 30X, 33X, 34X, 37X | - |

Pooley Bridge | 17684 |

Keswick | 17687 |

Gosforth | 19467 |

Correct the data for these number ranges.

The following number ranges have changed since 2003 and should be DELETED from the table:

Location | Area Codes | 5-digit Subscriber Number Ranges | |
---|---|---|---|

Forfar | 1307 | 8[2-4]XXX | DELETE THESE TWO ENTRIES |

Kircudbright | 1557 | 50XXX |

These area codes were upgraded to use only 6-digit subscriber numbers at least several years ago.

The following number ranges were mis-classified by Ofcom for many years and should be DELETED from the table:

Location | Area Codes | 5-digit Subscriber Number Ranges | |
---|---|---|---|

Wigton | 1697 | 7[23]XXX | DELETE THIS ENTRY |

This entry should show the 4-digit subscriber numbers found in the 016977 Brampton area code.

This data therefore belongs in a different table and in a different format: e.g. "16977 [23]XXX". See the final item.

The following number ranges have changed since 2003:

Location | Area Codes | 5-digit Subscriber Number Ranges | ||
---|---|---|---|---|

Buxton | 1298 | 2[2-7]XXX | 7[0-47-9]XXX | 8[3-5]XXX |

The correct data is as follows:

Location | Area Codes | 5-digit Subscriber Number Ranges | ||
---|---|---|---|---|

Buxton | 1298 | 2[2-8]XXX | 7[0-47-9]XXX | 8[3-5]XXX |

The part "[2-7]" changes to "[2-8]".

The following number ranges have changed since 2003:

Location | Area Codes | 5-digit Subscriber Number Ranges | |
---|---|---|---|

Alton | 1420 | 2[23]XXX | 8[02-9]XXX |

The correct data is as follows:

Location | Area Codes | 5-digit Subscriber Number Ranges | |
---|---|---|---|

Alton | 1420 | 2[23]XXX | 8XXXX |

The part "[02-9]" changes to "X".

The following number ranges have changed since 2003:

Location | Area Codes | 5-digit Subscriber Number Ranges | |
---|---|---|---|

St. Austell | 1726 | 6[13-7]XXX | 7[0-7]XXX |

The correct data is as follows:

Location | Area Codes | 5-digit Subscriber Number Ranges | |
---|---|---|---|

St. Austell | 1726 | 6[13-9]XXX | 7[0-7]XXX |

The part "[13-7]" changes to "[13-9]".

The following number range is missing from the table:

Location | Area Code | 5-digit Subscriber Number Ranges |
---|---|---|

Penrith | 1768 | 88[2-46-8]XX |

The above number range needs to be added to the table.

The following area codes changed name in 2003:

**01276**: Ascot changed name to**Camberley**.**01461**: Annan changed name to**Gretna**.**01488**: Great Shefford changed name to**Hungerford**.**01562**: Stourbridge changed name to**Kidderminster**.**01744**: Rainford changed name to**St Helens**.**01963**: Templecombe changed name to**Wincanton**.

Correct the data for these number ranges.

There's a spelling mistake in the table:

**01557**: Kircudbright should be**Kirkcudbright**.

Correct the spelling for this area.

A new section is needed, listing the details of 4-digit subscriber numbers:

Numbers beginning either 0169772 and 0169773 are in a 5-digit code area and have a 4-digit subscriber number:

A new table is needed as follows:

Location | Area Code | 4-digit Subscriber Number Ranges |
---|---|---|

Brampton | 16977 | [23]XXX |

Add a new table to show the data for this number range.
