This chapter confines itself to considering how numbering and addressing is defined and applied to the various types of networks (both fixed and mobile). After considering the two different approaches made in telephone and data networks, particularly IP (Internet Protocol) networks, we examine the newly introduced integrated system that allows full interworking between telephone numbers and Internet addresses. It should be appreciated that this is a surprisingly fast moving area of national regulation and there may be changes made to the establish principles of numbering and addressing, particularly as new implementation of voice services, such as voice-over IP (VoIP) are implemented.
