automatic number identification (ANI)

Automatic Number Identification (ANI) is a feature of switched networks.

This automatic number identification can be a number or device directory. The ANI code is used to calculate the cost of individual connections, as it identifies the calling subscriber. The ANI number is normally part of the address information and is used by the network operator for billing purposes, but it can also be used as a callback number.
