Freephone Number (UIFN) enables an International Freephone Service (IFS)
customer to be allocated a unique freephone number(s) that is the same
throughout the world.
The International Premium
Rate Service (IPRS) enables an Information Service Provider (ISP) in a
country to be assigned one or more Universal International Premium Rate
Numbers (UIPRN), which allow IPRS callers to access information and other
services provided by the ISP. For these calls, callers are charged at a
premium rate. Detailed charging and accounting principles are defined in
the D-Series Recommendations. In some cases, callers may need prior
subscription to IPRS with the IPRS originating ROA and/or with the ISP.
An International Shared Cost
Number (ISCN) is a unique number assigned to an ROA for its ISCS customer.
This number can be dialed in several countries at a rate equivalent to the
national call charge in the country of origin. All other service and
call-related charges are paid by the ISCS customer.

of ATM services. The ITU IND AESA enables companies, corporations and
