NRENum.net

​Interconnecting multiple dialling methods for real-time communications.
  

​NRENum.net provides a solution for seamless dialling interconnection between multiple technologies. It translates telephone numbers into addresses that can be used in internet communications and so facilitates services such as VoIP (voice over internet protocol) and video conferencing.

  

The NRENum.net service is aimed primarily at academia and is an 'ENUM' service for end users. ENUM (E.164 number mapping) is the basis for the standard dialling system known as the 'Golden ENUM tree'. NRENum.net is considered as complementary and a valid alternative to this system.


GÉANT and NRENum.net

NRENum.net is run by the GÉANT organisation and participating national research and education networking (NREN) organisations. GÉANT supports the development of technical improvements to the NRENum.net service and promotes the deployment of NRENum.net worldwide.


Operations Team

GÉANT is responsible for ensuring the correct and secure operations of the NRENum.net service by the NRENum.net Operations Team, which is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Tier-0 root Domain Name Systems and the handling of country code delegation requests. This team may escalate technical or policy issues to the Global NRENum.net Governance Committee for discussion.


Global governance

The Global NRENum.net Governance Committee (GNGC) was established in 2013 as the highest-level strategic body responsible for overall NRENum.net service definition, sustainability and long-term strategy. This includes formulating and recommending service governance principles and policies. It was set up as a result of the ever growing deployment and use of the NRENum.net service, and the NRENum.net community requesting a firmer basis for NRENum.net operations and governance worldwide.
 
The GNGC consists of six representatives of the regions where the service is available, appointed by the NRENum.net community for a two-year mandate. The committee meets regularly and is supported by GÉANT staff.
