When not being forgotten is a key to surviving the current climate, V1 VoIP and our resellers can help a company become memorable simply by how they are contacted with toll free and vanity numbers.

A toll free number is a number with prefixes that start with 800, 888, 877 or 866 and in which the called party is charged for the call rather than the calling party. If you would like callers throughout the United States to reach you without being charged, this would be a great option for your business. Also, if you do not want your customers to know where your business is located, a toll free number can hide that since there is no city area code preceding the number. If you prefer an area code that is easy to remember rather than a localized number, you should go with this option.

A vanity number is an alphanumeric equivalent to a telephone number and in some instances can spell out a specific word. For example, 1-800-628-8737 is a vanity number for 1-800-M-A-T-T-R-E-S. The vanity number does not have to be an 800 number. Vanity numbers can be good for your business if you want an easy to remember phone number. If you plan on launching a large marketing campaign it may be important to invest in the vanity number so that potential customers will have an easier time remembering how to get a hold of you. You can always change to a vanity number at a later time.

The Difference Between ANI and ALI Databases

V1 VoIP explains the difference between the automatic number identification ANI and the automatic location identification ALI databases and how they are used in voip emergency phone callsEmergencies happen and can’t be avoided. That’s why the ability to make a phone call in an emergency is always crucial. When it comes to making emergency phone calls over VoIP, the difference between ALI and ANI databases is always asked.

The Automatic Number Identification (ANI) is the automatic display at the PSAP of the telephone number associated with the line which called 911. Each telephone number and the physical location to which it corresponds are stored in an Automatic Location Identification (ALI) database, managed by the local exchange carrier.

Envision a 911 operator looking at a screen with the address of the caller before saying “help is on the way”. In this situation, the PSAP uses the ANI to retrieve the caller’s physical address from the ALI database. Additionally, the ANI acts as a callback number should the PSAP lose its connection to the distressed caller. Both ANI and ALI are key capabilities of E911 service.

With traditional E911 service, ALI records are stored in regional ALI databases, and are usually administered by the local exchange carrier (LEC). When a phone’s location changes, the regional ALI database must be revised with new location information which can take up to 48 hours to update.

Due to the capabilities of IP phones, it can be difficult to ensure that the regional ALI is up-to-date. Whereas traditional telephone numbers are static, IP phones can be moved easily, forcing the user to notify a network administrator, who in turn must contact the LEC to update the phone’s location in the regional ALI database. Unfortunately, this process takes time to implement, and may be forgotten entirely by the user.

Additionally, IP phones can relocate to regions served by different ALI databases entirely. A VoIP service provider or enterprise would then need agreements with each LEC to update different regional ALI databases as phones move around the country.

Ultimately, it is difficult for regional ALI databases to stay current with nomadic VoIP users, and there is no guarantee that the VoIP caller’s accurate location information will be available in a crisis.

Coveted 212 New York Area Code Numbers Available

Coveted 212 New York City Area Code Phone Numbers DIDs available at V1 VoIP

There is no area code more coveted than the 212 New York City area code. 212 denotes length of stay in the Big Apple, status and prestige. These coveted area code DIDs are available for a limited time at V1 VoIP.

It’s no secret that 212 phone numbers are highly limited. New Yorkers have also been running low on 917 numbers and even the more recent 646 ones are drying out from cell phones. Basic math says there are roughly 7.9 million phone numbers available per area code. While it took 45 years to assign all of the 212 numbers, it will take half of that time to exhaust the inventory of 646 numbers.

A History of New York City Area Codes
When area codes were first created, 212 covered the Manhattan as a city. As the usage of telephones become more popular, new area codes were introduced for separate areas of New York. 718 was for Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, and eventually the Bronx. By the time 1992 rolled around, 212 was exclusive to Manhattan. As time went on and the inventory of these coveted area codes were being depleted, regulators introduced the 646 area code. When this happened, you could tell the old New Yorkers from the new by their telephone number.

While 212 phone numbers are often a converstaional topic when their number is given out, they also serve a purpose. Reports say that a phone call is more likely to be answered when a 212 number comes up on caller ID.

By contacting V1 VoIP to get your 212 area code phone number, you can create a virtual presence in New York City. Get your 212 phone number today!
