The IETF Telephone Number Mapping (enum) Working Group is defining a DNS-based architecture and protocols for mapping a telephone number to a set of attributes (e.g., URLs) that can be used to contact a resource associated with that number. The efforts are designed to integrate Internet telephony with the traditional PSTN (public-switched telephone network).
