Power your ENUM solutions with PowerDNS Authoritative Server
E.164 Number Mapping (ENUM) forms a bridge between the separated worlds of ‘legacy’ phone networks and modern internet multimedia applications. This allows voice and other services from both sides to interconnect. ENUM now plays a key role in modern VoIP communication, both for ‘over the top‘ VoIP services, as well as in mobile and fixed networks. PowerDNS enables ENUM to use DNS as a centralized phonebook to connect applications based on traditional ‘phone numbers’ with multimedia applications on the internet.
PowerDNS for ENUM look-up services
For ENUM applications, one or more central ‘look-up’ services are required. PowerDNS Authoritative Server provides the DNS services for a well-functioning ENUM setup. It provides fast response times and resilience by deploying a multi-node authoritative solution. Querying multiple databases for number resolution can be added with our caching resolver PowerDNS Recursor.
PowerDNS fully supports ENUM standards and can be used as the central, distributed database for the various use-cases of ENUM. It supports public ENUM solutions reachable on the internet, such as user-ENUM. In addition, PowerDNS also enables private ENUM solutions or carrier ENUM for routing between operators.
