What Is DNIS?

DNIS means Dialed Number Identification Service. This is the same as DDI Direct Dial Incoming.

So, for example, the number range is

  • 01632 960 100 to
  • 01632 960 199

So you could use

  • 01632 960 100 for the switchboard
  • 01632 960 101 for Customer Service
  • 01632 960 120 for Sales etc
