The public is becoming more and more difficult to
manage continually increased numbers, codes and addresses
which are always meaningless and designed for specific
purposes, such as: postal codes, telephone numbers, fax
numbers, telex numbers, electronic mail addresses, world
wide web page addresses, and many other addresses. In
addition, these numbers are also changing frequently and
becoming longer and longer. Why should we remember so
many codes which really serve the same purpose: to
represent an address?|
As pointed above that the postal code systems can be
unified by the Natural Area Coding System, all other
address code systems can also be unified by the Natural
Area Coding System. Now we are going to use the Natural Area Coding
System to create all codes, numbers and addresses related
to a location for telecommunication.
A NAC telecommunication address code can be
constructed in the same way as the NAC global postal code
and in most situations the NAC telecommunication code is
exactly the same as its NAC global postal code if there
is only one telecommunication unit in the address or the
telecommunication unit has been integrated by a computer
which can automatically connect different signals to
their corresponding equipment such as a telephone, fax,
television set or the computer file receiver.
If in one house or one office there are more than
one separated telecommunication units, people can assign
a unique locally defined third string to every unit to
generate its telecommunication address code.
Generally, a NAC telecommunication code is an eight-character
NAC plus a locally defined third string. But
for a cellular phone or other tele-communication services
valid in a large range, the address code may comprises
only one unique user defined string, or a two-, four- or
six-character NAC plus a unique user defined third string
within the corresponding area.
The rules for defining a third character string for
telecommunication address code are the same as those for
defining the third string in a NAC global postal code.
A cellular phone address code comprising only a user
defined string is a globally valid address code which can
be recognized and used in the whole world. A cellular
phone address code comprising a NAC plus a user defined
string will be valid within the area defined by the NAC.
A shorter NAC plus a user defined third string will be
valid in a larger area. Large international companies may
use globally valid cellular phone codes, while small
local companies may take cellular phone codes valid
within small areas.
The new telecommunication address code system can be
used efficiently on a new telephone set on which it has
keys of all digits and English letters together with
several function keys: a space key, a hyphen - key, an
Enter key and some other function keys.
If you want to call a person, you need input the
three character strings of the NAC phone code separated
by space keys and then press Enter.
If there is no third string in a NAC telephone code,
you simply input the two strings separated by a space key
and then press Enter.
The NAC telephone set has a display window to show
the codes and an erasing key for correcting wrong
characters during the input. It has another function key
for the user to display the distance between the caller
and the receiver and to show the price of the call before
the user presses Enter. Therefore, the caller can make a
decision whether to make the call or not before pressing
The keys and their bit codes of a NAC telephone set
should be the same as those of a computer keyboard, which
may help produce an integrated computer system for
phones, faxes, and internet services in the near future.
Using a current touch tone telephone set to call a
NAC telephone code, a person has to use two keys * and
# as the prefix of each NAC character string and two
digits to represent a NAC integer corresponding to a NAC
character and press * and * to enter the code. NAC
integer 0-9 should be replaced by 00-09 respectively.
The English capital vowels are defined as: A = 30, E =
31, I = 32, O = 33, U = 34, Y = 35, and the symbol - = 36. For
example, if you want to call me at NAC: 8CHD Q87M SHEN,
you can press these keys: *, #, 0, 8, 1, 1, 1, 5,
1, 2, *, #, 2, 2, 0, 8, 0, 7, 1,
9, *, #, 2, 4, 1, 5, 3, 1, 2, 0,
*, and *.
If a telephone code has only a user defined string,
then you just press *, #, the corresponding digits
and then *, * on a current touch phone.
Using a NAC telephone set to call an old telephone
number, you have to press O, then input the number and
The NAC telecommunication address codes and current
telephone numbers can work compatibly and the old system
is allowed to get out of its service gradually.
Using the NAC address codes, telephone cables, TV
cables and Internet cables can be easily integrated into
one telecommunication network, and their capacity and
efficiency can be maximized.
Therefore, a NAC plus a user-defined string can be
used for both local and international postal services,
emergency services, delivery services, telephone and fax,
cable TV and internet services. The public can be
released from managing continually increased addresses
The advantages of the NAC universal telecommunication
address code system are:
- One code is for all address-related services, which can
greatly ease the public in using all address-related services;
- Due to the unified format and meaningful characters of the
code, NAC telecommunication code will be very easily accepted
- The code can help all telecommunication networks integrated
into one unified telecommunication network;
- Since the code represents universal coordinates, telecommunication
software can easily connect the communication line based on the distance;
- The code can be determined by the user, which can help to eliminate
the address management services and reduce all time and inconvenience
in waiting and assigning address code.
