Purpose of this article is to provide answers to some queries concerning NPA/NXX values in BRM based on the below scenario :-

One would like to understand how NPA/NXX values are assigned in PIN_FLD_SHIP_TO and PIN_FLD_SHIP_FROM fields when a voice call is made.

For e.g., a call is made from USA, +19178414441, to France, +33787821169. Below is logged in PCM_OP_RATE_TAX_CALC input flist,

Here NPA/NXX values are 337878 and 191784 which are not valid at all. The actual valid one's are 378782 and 917841. As the NPA/NXX values are not valid, tax calculations are always wrong and customer is getting 0 taxes in all the cases. Basically NPA/NXX values are picked just after the '+' sign followed by 6 digits but this looks to be incorrect.

Business has impact as the tax on international calls is always 0.
