1. N11 code – An N11 code or N11 number is a three-digit abbreviated dialing telephone number within the North American Numbering Plan which allows access to specific services. The assigned use of each N11 can vary for the countries included in the NANP but 9-1-1 is mandated in the U. S. and Canada. 7-1-1 and 9-1-1 access is mandated by law in the U. S. even within private networks, cellular services often cannot automatically provide a specific location of a caller using 9-1-1. 4-1-1 and 6-1-1 are supported by the provider for the calling phone. Other community services are provided through 2-1-1, but only if an organization such as the United Way or the local government operates it locally. Likewise, local or state/provincial government may, but do not uniformly, 8-1-1 was made mandatory in the U. S. in 2007, however, it has not been universally been implemented. 7-1-1 is funded through the TRS Fund which Telco Carriers are mandated to maintain to provide Relay Services for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired. In a few states, some retain the ability to use 7-digit dialing for local calls. As such, N11s are restricted by NANP design to N =2 through 9 creating the 8 allowable N11s and this is also why NPAs or 7-digit phone numbers cannot have a 0 or 1 as the first digit
2. 5-1-1 – 5-1-1, initially designated for road weather information, is a transportation and traffic information telephone hotline in some regions of the United States and Canada. Travelers can dial the telephone number 5-1-1 on traditional landline telephones. It is an N11 code of the North American Numbering Plan that are used for special services, the number code has also extended to be the default name of many state/provincial transportation department road conditions websites, such as Wisconsins site. Some 5-1-1 services have a scope which is limited to information for drivers regarding road conditions. Other services provide this, but have a scope, also providing information on public transit, carpooling. 5-1-1 services in the United States are organized by state or region, because the associated websites are often a vital part of 5-1-1 services, this article has an extensive External Links section. As of March 2001, at least 300 telephone numbers existed for information systems in the United States. On July 21,2000, the FCC assigned 511 as a telephone number for ITS traveler information. Its use is being promoted by the USDOTs Intelligent Transport Systems initiative, the first 511 traveler information system to launch was in the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky metropolitan area in June 2001. The first statewide 511 traveler information system was launched across the state of Nebraska in October 2001, eight states, from Alaska to Maine, pooled resources and expertise to develop the 511 voice-activated phone service for travelers. Led by the Iowa DOT, the consortium received $700,000 from the Federal Highway Administration to help pay for system design. Each state also provided a 20 percent matching fund, boosting total funds to nearly $900,000, individual states have the lead role in coordinating 511 deployments. National leadership is provided by the 511 Deployment Coalition, active 511 systems as of January 31,2010, The FCC designated 511 as the national traveler information number. Virginia’s 511 system began in the Shenandoah Valley in 2000 and went statewide in early 2005, currently both the 511virginia. org website and calling 511 from any land line or mobile phone provides statewide travelling information. Alternatively, there is now a 511 VDOT app for iOS, implemented in August 2006, Tennessee travelers have the option of accessing road and travel conditions at TN511. com or through the 511 phone service. In Kentucky,511 services cover traffic and weather conditions, and can also be heard on the radio on the AM dial, Florida has an active 511 system that underwent an overhaul in 2009. Callers are also given the option of connecting to live operators at the Georgia Department of Transportations Transportation Management Center in Atlanta, callers can also connect to adjacent states 5-1-1 systems, including North Carolinas. The application also provides special offers and other information about businesses, a local 404 number in metro Atlanta and a toll-free 800 number were used for these and landline calls, and still serve as backup for mobile providers that fail to connect
3. 8-1-1 – 8-1-1 is an N-1-1 telephone number in Canada and the United States. In Canada, the number is used for non-urgent health services, in the United States, 8-1-1 provides a uniform national phone number to access local utility location services. S. Before that time, each of these call before you dig services had its own 800 number, and this safety measure not only helps prevents damage that interrupts telecommunications, but also the cutting of subterranean power lines, water mains, and natural gas pipes. Underground utilities are located via color-coded markings typically up to and not past the users service connection or meter, lines on the other side of the meter or service connection are considered to be part of the customers property and will typically not be located by these services. Establishment of an abbreviated dialing number for this purpose was required by the Pipeline Safety Improvement Act of 2002, prior to 2005, the FCC had never officially assigned 8-1-1 for any service, but did not prevent its use either. Traditionally, 8-1-1 has been a line to the business office of the telephone company providing service on the line. Mobile phones sometimes use 6-1-1 for this purpose as well, many telephone companies, including Canadas Telus, are experimenting with merging 8-1-1 and 6-1-1 service now that neither will usually route directly to a human operator. Generally, an automatic phone answering system or other automated attendant will now answer both lines anyway, at one point in time, this number routed to 9-1-1 as a misdialed call, but this operation has long passed from use. It was designed so that someone was in a crisis. However, the reassignment of this code was required due to the scarcity of N11 numbers, in Canada, in July 2005, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission assigned 8-1-1 for non-urgent health teletriage/telehealth services. Since 1997, New Brunswick implemented a province-wide Tele-Care service, adopting the 8-1-1 number in place of the toll-free 800 number in 2010, call811. com CRTC Approval of 8-1-1 in Canada 811 Hotline Offers Non-emergency Health Advice Nova Scotia HealthLink
4. 9-1-1 – 9-1-1 is an emergency telephone number for the North American Numbering Plan, one of eight N11 codes. Like other emergency numbers around the world, this number is intended for use in emergency circumstances only, in approximately 96 percent of the U. S. the Enhanced 9-1-1 system automatically pairs caller numbers with a physical address. In the Philippines, the 9-1-1 emergency hotline has been available to the public since August 1,2016 and it is the first of its kind in Asia-Pacific region. It replaces the previous emergency number 117 used outside Davao City,999 is used in the United Kingdom and many British territories. 112 is the equivalent emergency number used in the European Union, in the US, some carriers, including AT&T, map the number 112 to the emergency number 9-1-1. In the earliest days of telephone technology, prior to the development of the rotary dial telephone, to place a call, the caller was required to pick up the telephone receiver, sometimes turn a magneto crank, and wait for the telephone operator to answer. The caller would then ask to be connected to the number they wished to call, in an emergency, the caller might simply say Get me the police, I want to report a fire, or I need an ambulance or doctor. Until dial service came into use, one could not place calls without operator assistance. The first known experiment with an emergency telephone number occurred in the United Kingdom in 1937. Winnipeg initially used 999 as the number, but switched numbers when 9-1-1 was proposed by the United States. In 1967, the Presidents Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice recommended the creation of a number that could be used nationwide for reporting emergencies. The Federal Communications Commission then met with AT&T in November 1967 in order to choose the number, in 1968, the number was agreed upon. AT&T chose the number 9-1-1, which was simple, easy to remember, dialed easily, Bevill reportedly answered the phone with Hello. At the City Hall with Fite was Haleyville mayor James Whitt, at the station with Bevill were Gallagher. The phone used to answer the first 9-1-1 call, a red model, is now in a museum in Haleyville, while a duplicate phone is still in use at the police station. In 1968, 9-1-1 became the emergency number for the United States. Calling this single provided a caller access to police, fire. The number itself, however, did not become known until the 1970s
5. Abbreviated dialing – Abbreviated dialing is the use of a very short digit sequence to reach specific telephone numbers, such as those of public services. The purpose of numbers is to be universal, short. Typically they are two or three digits, carriers refer to the shortened number sequences as abbreviated dialing codes. Unlike SMS shortcodes, they are not automatically synchronized across carriers. ADCs are provisioned separately for mobile networks versus landline networks, the most commonly known examples are emergency telephone numbers such as 9-9-9, 1-1-2 and 9-1-1. Other services may also be available through abbreviated dialing numbers, such as the other of the eight N11 codes of the North American Numbering Plan besides 9-1-1. State highway departments in recent years have used abbreviated dialing codes to allow drivers to obtain information about conditions or to reach the state highway patrol. Examples are *55 in Missouri and Oklahoma, or *FHP which connects to the Florida Highway Patrol, for text messaging, the technical equivalent is a short code, however these are rented by their private users rather than being universal and for public services. Vertical service codes may also be considered as abbreviated dialing, though these prefix the special touch-tone characters * and # instead of using only numerals, most are used to access calling features rather than a called party, and some are specific to each telephone company. Some are used locally or regionally, other codes as short as one numeral are used to report breaking news or traffic to the newsrooms of local news radio or TV stations. A mobile dial code is a number, typically preceded by a * or #. MDCs are also known in carrier terminology as abbreviated dialing codes, mobile dial codes are dialed just like a regular telephone number. The caller can be presented with any one of a variety of responses that an advertiser defines - a voice or IVR call, a message, a video or audio clip. #250 and **MOVE are two such MDCs. com
6. Enhanced 9-1-1 – Enhanced 911, E-911 or E911 is a system used in North America that links emergency callers with the appropriate public resources. Three-digit emergency telephone numbers originated in the United Kingdom in 1937 and have spread to continents, other easy dial codes, including the 112 number adopted by the European Union in 1991, have been deployed to provide free-of-charge emergency calls. In North America, where 9-1-1 was chosen as the access code. This location may be an address or other geographic reference information such as X/Y map coordinates. The callers telephone number is used in numerous manners to track a location that can be used to police, fire, emergency medical. In North America the incoming 9-1-1 call is answered at the Public Safety Answering Point of the governmental agency that has jurisdiction over the callers location. When the 9-1-1 call arrives at the appropriate PSAP, it is answered by a trained official known as a Telecommunicator. In some jurisdictions the Telecommunicator is also the dispatcher of public safety response resources, when a landline call arrives at the PSAP, special computer software uses the telephone number to retrieve and display the location of the caller in near real-time upon arrival of the call. The system only works in North America if the telephone number 911 is called. Calls made to other numbers, even though they may be listed as an emergency telephone number. Outside Canada, Mexico, and the United States this type of facility is called caller location. The first 911 system was installed in Haleyville, Alabama, in February 1968, the system was rapidly adapted and improved by other telephone companies, evolving into the E911 system, which provides both caller location and identification. A pioneering system was in place in Chicago by the mid-1970s, Enhanced 911 is currently deployed in most metropolitan areas in the United States, Canada, and Mexico as well as all of the Cayman Islands. Location is an important concept in the manner of how the Enhanced 9-1-1 system works, often, the contracted 3rd party further subcontracts the actual ALI database management to companies such as Intrado, Bandwidth and TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. When the call is delivered to the PSAP, a query is made to the Automatic Location Information. There is a difference between the location is determined for different types of calls based upon the type of originating device or network. For each of these categories please see the sections below for the categories to learn more about location determination for each of the following types of calls. There are hardwired or Wireline enhanced 911 calls which originate from a device connected to a fixed point of connection to the PSTN
