On the international level, point codes (PC) are structured according to the ITU-T standards. 14 bits of information formatted as:
- 3 bits - Zone
- 8 bits - Area/Network
- 3 bits - Network-Signalling Point
On the national level, the point codes are formatted according to whatever standard the country chooses to use. Most countries use either the ITU-T or ANSI national standards.
The ANSI point code is 24 bits of information formatted as:
- 8 bits - Network
- 8 bits - Cluster
- 8 bits - Member
The ITU-T national point code is 14 bits of information interpreted as a single identifier:
- 14 bits - Structureless point code
Quite often, in protocol analyzers for example, other formats are used. Two other commonly used representations are:
- decimal - all bits as a single decimal number
- hexidecimal - all bits as a single hexidecimal number
