Forwarding ANI when transferring calls over DCS link

Forwarding ANI when transferring calls over DCS link

Forwarding ANI when transferring calls over DCS link


We have three Definity G3Rs and a Definity G3Csi connected by DCS links. When customer calls are transferred between sites, I want the ANI to be displayed after the transfer is complete. This works within each site, but not accross the links. Is there a way to configure the DCS trunk groups to allow this?

RE: Forwarding ANI when transferring calls over DCS link


You should have no problem with sending ANI digits - make sure you have send number set to y on page 2 and also a nca-tsc setup (also on page 2).

Hope this helps,


RE: Forwarding ANI when transferring calls over DCS link

Your trunk groups between your DCS nodes must be IDSN-PRI trunks.  Avaya refers to this as DCS+.  If the trunk groups between your DCS nodes are TIE trunks you will be unable to send the ANI. There are some differences between DCS and DCS+.  If you use DCS+ the name displayed on sets is shorter in length than traditional DCS (17 characters if memory serves me correctly) and a few monor other differences.

Check the trunk group type between you DCS nodes.  If they are TIE you are outa luck.  Sorry  Hope this helps.
