    Outbound Caller ID priority in AOS Voice products

     

    The outbound caller ID that is used for a call through an AOS voice product will depend on the configuration.  The list below summarizes what is used for outbound caller ID in order from highest priority to lowest.  Despite what is configured, the caller ID can be overwritten by the service provider.  Please check with your service provider to ensure they are not overwriting the outbound caller ID.

     

    NOTE: This is accurate for AOS A4.05 and later

    Additional Notes:

     

    • An alias is not used to change outbound caller ID, so it is not listed in the table above.  It is only used for inbound call routing to match a voice user, auto attendant, ring-group, etc.

     

     

    • For internal calls with Polycom and ADTRAN IP 700 phones the caller ID displayed for incoming calls will be based on entries from the Global Directory.  For ADTRAN phones these will be contained in the adtran_phonebook.csv file in the ADTRAN directory on the cflash of a NetVanta 7100.  For Polycom phones these will be contained in the <mac-address>-directory.xml file or the 000000000000-directory.xml file (only used if <mac-address>-directory.xml contains no entries).  These files are located in the Polycom directory on cflash of a NetVanta 7100.

     

    • If you make changes to the configuration and have confirmed they are working you will need to save the current configuration.  You can do this with the Save link in the top right of the web GUI or with the "wr" command from enable mode in the CLI.
