    Caller ID from Viking Doorphone Controller on FXO port

    schumatt New Member

      I have a NetVanta 7100 with a Viking C-2000B doorphone controller attached to one of the built-in FXO ports.  It works great, except for how the caller ID is presented to the NetVanta.

       

      Since the Viking controller is seen as an analog trunk, it can send "caller ID" information.  We've always had trouble with this, so I disabled the sending of caller ID info in the Viking. I never spent much time on it, as I was able to have the trunk go to a ring group, where I used the caller ID prefix to add "DOOR" to the incoming caller ID (basically empty).  That worked great until I upgraded the NetVanta to A5.03 and the phones to 2.2.0.  Now when the Viking sends its empty caller ID, the NetVanta (or is the phone) refuses to display the caller ID prefix, so we just get "UNKNOWN" as the caller ID on calls from the door phone controller.

       

      Tonight I attempted to get it working as designed (where the Viking sends Caller ID to the NV which shows which door is actually calling).  I re-enabled the Viking to send caller ID, then plugged a basic analog phone w/ caller ID into the Viking.  It appears the Viking simply sends the door number (1, 2, 3, or 4) as the number and "Entry Phone 1", "Entry Phone 2", etc. as the name.  I plugged the Viking back into the FXO port on the NetVanta, pressed the call button on a door phone, and found that the NetVanta still shows "UNKNOWN" for the calls.

       

      Is the NetVanta discarding the caller ID because it only contains a single digit?  If so, any way around that?

       

      What I've done for now is enabled incoming caller ID override on that FXO trunk so that it inserts "123", causing the ring group caller ID prefix to work again, so the phones display "DOOR_123" when the controller places a call.

       

      I'd really like to get the door phone controller's caller ID into the NetVanta so things can work as advertised, and the users can very easily see which door calls are coming from.  Please let me know what config sections or debug output would be helpful to share.

       

      Thanks,

          Matt,

           

          Is caller-id enabled on the analog trunks connected to the door phone controller?  It would look like this in the configuration for your analog trunks:

           

          !

          voice trunk T01 type analog supervision loop-start

            caller-id

            trunk-number 8001

            connect fxo 0/1

            rtp delay-mode adaptive

            codec-group g711_first

          !

           

          If it is enabled can you attach your configuration (strip out passwords, public IPs, public phone numbers, etc) and also the output from a debug sip stack messages and debug voice verbose when you recreate the issue?

           

          Thanks,
          Matt

              Caller ID is enabled on the trunk.

               

              I'm attaching the config and the capture with those debug options enabled.  One has the incoming caller id override enabled, the other does not, if that makes a difference.

               

              Also, for testing, I created a new ring group with a single member for the door phone to ring to.  So, in the captures, you'll see it's going to 8103 (with x1010 as the only member), where normally it would go to 8102 (with almost every phone as a member) during night mode.

               

              Anything else I can provide, let me know.

               

              Thanks,
              Matt
