Hello - I’m sorry if this seems like a “Howdy how do you do help me please” for an advanced half NORTEL topic, but I’m near my wits end for this one. I’m sorry if I’m asking the wrong way or in the wrong place - new on these forums.
I maintain a FreePBX system that has a NORTEL BCM50E inbound trunked into it via pjsip_custom.conf. I know I can define Caller ID There via “callerid=”. However, I was wondering if there was a way to deliver the BCM50E type Caller ID (from the individual NT Sets themselves) and convert that over to FPBX/Asterisk CID values.
As it stands, anyone dialing into the FPBX PBX calls in as “WFC PBX <667835>” (predefined as ‘callerid=“WFC PBX” <667835>’ in pjsip_custom.conf.
I would like it to bring over the Name of the DN and the DNs number, e: “Nortel User <2101>” (‘Nortel User’ is name on DN, DN number is ‘2101’).
I’ve done research on RPID, PAI and the such but there is so little documentation on an example like this - likely because we’re in 2023 - and it’s difficult for me to put two and two together.
If there’s anyone who’s knowledgeable on the subject and willing to broadcast some knowledge I would be extremely grateful.
If you need any additional information, please let me know and I’ll provide what I can to help you in understanding and assisting me.
