PRI: Sending calling party number

PRI: Sending calling party number

PRI: Sending calling party number

I have a customer that has 3 digit extensions, and the IP Office is sending 4 digits to the local telco connected via PRI, NI2 protocol.  The Telco needs to see 10 digits.  Where do I tell it to add the extra 7 digits I need to make telco happy?

I have seen this:


but the help is really vague.

I am guessing I would follow it up with this:


Has anyone run into this problem?  

And what I don't get is how does the switch know to send 4 digits, when the extension are 3 digits.  Example: DID 555-3098 goes to x398.  And the Calling Party Number that is sent when I call from x398 is 3098!

RE: PRI: Sending calling party number

Not too sure what you are needing to achive.

In my experience the telco adds the digits to an outgoing call and the only time this needs to be changed is if you have a DDI number range and need to display a separate DDI number for each extension.  In that case add a short code under each user with their DDI number  ie code ? number .s0113234592 line:1 feature dial.

RE: PRI: Sending calling party number

Thanks rickuk99 I'll try that.  To help clear up what I was talking about, the telco was only sending out exactly what I send to them(for caller ID). eg I call my cell from x 398, I send 3098 and the caller ID that shows on my cell phone is 3098, I send 5553098 I get 555-3098 on my cell, and so on.  I tried this so far:


That sends the main number for the caller ID for local calls going out on the PRI.
