Question Why Use ANI to Route Calls

I'm just curious as to why you do not route calls based on DNIS digits. I have found that we do not always get the ANI string. So would that not be unreliable?

I do use ANI for time to time. But I use it to "dump" callers who regularly spam or harrass our staff by using a vector routing table (VRT). I route these specific calls to a vector called Dump. It plays the intercept tones and an anouncement I recorded that says: "Your call cannot by completed as dialed ..." twice and drops the call.
