ENUM allows more VoIP calls to be connected directly over the Internet, for no charge, rather than via the traditional telephone network.

ENUM works by translating a telephone number into a domain name. This allows users to continue to use the existing phone number they are familiar with, whilst allowing the call to be routed using the domain name system.

This system enables users to cut costs by bypassing the ordinary telephone system and costing no more than the rental already being paid for the Internet connection.

ENUM also allows you to publish additional information alongside your telephone number. For example you can publish your postal address, email address or other location information.
