Explanation: Routledge Telecom Dictionary gives "queue" for "cola". However, your case sounds more like a numbering/dialling plan (due to the definition of "local"). Such a plan is, for instance 1 = country code, xxx = state prefix, etc., in which the terminal digits would apply to the area terminal of the phone network.
This sort of question was tackled recently in the Fr>En glossary, keyword "numérotation".
