Local Exchange Routing Guide

The Telcordia LERG Routing Guide is a trademarked term of North American Numbering Plan (NANP) (i.e. World Zone 1). Its data supports the current local exchange network within the NANP and identifies reported planned changes in the network. The acronym "LERG" originally stood for "Local Exchange Routing Guide".

The LERG Routing Guide provides data to support:

  • Routing of calls by service providers over the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and interconnection points of the PSTN with the Internet Protocol (IP) world
  • A wide range of business needs of companies that require information about the network, numbering, and other data in the product

The LERG Routing Guide includes:

  • Operating Company Numbers, Company Names, Routing Contacts
  • Country Code Assignments
  • Numbering Plan Area (NPA) Assignments (also known as Area Codes)
  • Local access and transport area (LATA) Codes By Region
  • Destination Code assignments (NPA NXX Thousands-Blocks)
  • Access Tandem Codes
  • Oddball NXXs (e.g. 911, 976)
  • Switching Entity Record detail (e.g. Equipment Type, V&H Coordinates), including PSTN and IP network elements
  • Rate Center details (e.g. V&H Coordinates) and Localities (includes County and Postal Codes (US) of Localities)
  • Switch Homing Arrangements (tandem and other switch-to-switch interconnections)
  • Operator Access Tandem Codes (ATCs)
  • Location Routing Numbers (LRNs)
