This market concerns call origination in the public fixed telephony network. Call origination is a service consisting in, for an operator, transmitting calls made by its end-user to the network of another operator. It is used, on the one hand, for the selection/preselection of an operator (CS/CPS) and, on the other hand, for calls to non-geographic numbers (for instance a 0900 number).

Applicable regulatory framework
