Area code briefing
The institution who is governing the area to provide a distinction in the region from others usually assigns area code. The area code is usually a set of numbers, and sometimes alphabets if the number of regions in the country is more. You can find the area code of the area where you are residing by looking on the internet, or, if you have a magazine issued by the government containing the area code. Example, 862 area code.
Note that area code is applicable if you are residing in the same country. For international calls, the country code is to be used, which can also be used in a similar manner.
Moreover, the country code is to be extracted via the same method specified. The country code is to be used for sending the mails at the right address, in the right country. Simply write on the overleaf ‘Area Code-111’.
Role of area code
- Telephony Routing
Two mobile numbers, of different countries can be identical or similar. There is often a high rate of failure of forwarding the call to the wrong person or at the number, which is in different countries. For example,862 area codeshould be inserted as +862 or simply 862 before the number which is to be called in that area.
- Provide Rankings
As the names of regions are very difficult to remember, therefore, the task of sorting and arranging the regions with respect to a particular search term or criteria, such as highest birth rate, highest death rate and much more is done with the help of area code. The area code is a relatively shorter term and easier to remember and note down. With the use of area code, the name of the region can be looked or matched.
