Pseudo Automatic Number Identification (Pseudo-ANI) Law and Legal Definition

Pseudo Automatic Number Identification (Pseudo-ANI) means “a number, consisting of the same number of digits as ANI, that is not a North American Numbering Plan telephone directory number and may be used in place of an ANI to convey special meaning. The special meaning assigned to the pseudo-ANI is determined by agreements, as necessary, between the system originating the call, intermediate systems handling and routing the call, and the destination system.” [47 CFR 9.3; Title 47-Telecommunication; Chapter I-Federal Communications Commission; Subchapter A-General; Part 9-Interconnected Voice Over Internet Protocol Services]
