This document gives advice in setting up E.164 compatible numbering and dialing plans in administrative domains set up for IP Communications in general and VoIP applications in detail. After explaining numbering and dialing plans in principle, it discusses which types of E.164 numbers should be used for IP based terminals, to achieve proper routing of calls and other communications on the PSTN/ISDN and also on the Internet, using ENUM technology.
