Re: Callcentric Outgoing CNAM

 
Arne, I'm not sure that CC changed anything since last August, regarding Outbound on-the-fly CNAM and/or LIDB listing of their clients.

In the thread which I linked just above, I believe that I was getting the same kind of result back then (see 2nd link).

And THIS link »www.callcentric.com/faq/31/222 still reads as before - i.e. no outbound CNAM support.

EDIT : Linked page info has now been updated as per the below post by Iscream.

Thanks for pointing at that stale link.

A support for Outbound CNAM feature is provided for free for all North American DIDs since mid of February (2012).

Also, as some people have noticed it already - the Canadian CNAM is also automatically supported (that said - it takes a precedence over anything that could be in LIDB or 3rd party CNAM database) unless overwritten by an address book entry. The feature (Canadian CNAM support) was available since September (2012).

Arne - thanks for pointing out (for those who actually understand the matter) that it's not just a CNAM that is provided there, but rather a population of complete LIDB record entry, including all required line's parameters.

I thought it's been almost a year. I remember the big announcement on the front page and it was a great addition to the feature set.

I must have missed the announcement, and posts here were inconclusive/inconsistent in the meantime.

Nice detailed explanation in there now !

Thanks, Dave.

One more, CLID related feature, not described in the above mentioned FAQ, is there too - it's the one defined by RFC 3261 as "in-reply-to" header.

Shortly, if you use a SIP PBX and that PBX supports (or allows configuring) "in-reply-to" header for incoming calls which are forwarded to an outbound trunk - Callcentric will assign the same outgoing caller-ID to a call which had been received and is still active with a call-ID referenced by "in-reply-to" header.

This feature allows, in a standard way, and _without_ a prior made verification with a provider/carrier, to send out a call with the same Caller-ID as an inbound call made to your PBX by an external caller from PSTN or mobile line.

Now you may forward back to PSTN, a call made to your phone extension from PSTN or Mobile networks while preserving the caller's identity and most importantly - you don't need to verify your callers' CLIDs with Callcentric prior forwarding such calls back to PSTN or another [SIP] network.

A disclaimer for telephone SPAM'ers and SCAM'ers:
Attempts to spoof 3-rd party identities are considered illegal by FCC while prevention of such a spoofing is enforced at service providers; Callcentric uses all legally and technically possible means to identify and prevent caller-ID spoofing. Such measures may include a detection, isolation and immediate blocking of violating accounts. You've been warned.

Support told me that you do NOT support outbound CNAM. Which is it?

Please look at my reply to your PM.

That support's answer to your ticket was made by Dec. 31, 2012 while the change to our policy has taken effect only since yesterday. I'm apologizing for confusion.

Edit - fixed typos.

Excellent explanation in the PM! I didn't realize the policy change had just happened, so thanks for clearing things up.

Thanks Iscream. Really good news on the outgoing CNAM.
