  • Never said it was easy:-) Although really I don't think it is as bad as you might think:

    This shows the Canadian area codes and if you use a NOT statement (?!) in your normalization rules this will also allow you to cature all the US area codes. Alternatively the US area codes are listed here:

  • Hi,

    Looks like you have to create two Route in the Voice Policy. Every Route associates a trunking provider. And build a pattern to match with the country code for every Route to make sure the calls to different country are routed to corresponding trunking.

  • Yes you can do this. You will need separate voice policies, PSTN usages and routes. For example, on the "Canadian" routes you would match the Canadian area codes and then route then through the Canadian trunk.

    As a side note you can also use the trunks as a backup route to each other.
