Numbering Management

Under section 179(1) of the Act, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission is vested with the control, planning, administration, management and assignment of the numbering and electronic addressing of network services and applications services. The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission is responsible for the development of a numbering and electronic addressing plan for the numbering and electronic addressing of such network services and applications services.

Numbering and Electronic Addressing are crucial for the proper operation of networks, the provision of network based services and the development of an online economy and society. The efficiency and simplicity of numbering and electronic addressing arrangements, and the timely availability of numbering and electronic addressing resources, can either facilitate or hinder the socio-economic development of a country's communication network and the convergence between information processing, broadcasting and communications.

With the advent of new technologies and the new services which they enable, the range of purposes served by numbering and addressing systems has also changed. Originally, telecommunications numbering systems were designed to permit the addressing of fixed network (PSTN) telephone calls. The numbering system was previously relatively simple as it related to a single technology and service, and its main purpose was to define precise network addresses on a geographic basis. In contrast, today's requirements are far more complex in that numbering and electronic addressing systems may be numeric or alphanumeric (telecommunications), or alphabetical (domain names). They encompass multiple technologies (such as fixed, mobile, telephony and IP packet technologies) and services (such as voice and data including graphics, audio and video). Numbering and electronic addressing do not merely concern telecommunications operators. Instead, numbering and electronic addressing is a matter of great importance to communications carriers and service providers, broadcasters, information technology companies, content providers, subscribers and end users, as well as to governments and regulators.
