I'm sure it must create massive complications...
Wouldnt recognising the ringing pattern serve the same ends and, as they're all currently different, negate the co-operative requirement?It should be easy to solve. When the connection is established the receiver sends a 2 digit number back using the usual tone encoding. This will allow for 99 networks. The calling PABX recognises this code number as one of the providers and then updates the routing table. Next time the same number is called it knows how to route it and if the receiver has changed the network, updates the table again.
It would only require a little bit of cooperation from everyone.
I wasn't aware that they have different ringing patterns, I hardly ever use my cell to make calls. It could probably be used, although this may ultimately be more limiting and may not be as reliable. In whatever way it is solved, my point is that technologically this routing thing is child's play even with MNP.Wouldnt recognising the ringing pattern serve the same ends and, as they're all currently different, negate the co-operative requirement?
With some thought, and some enforced regulations it would be easy.With number migration across networks, surely none of this applies anyway?
