Hello if this FXO port, can you try connect any analog phone and see if the caller-id is displaying on it. Following is good tips from cisco


If you have caller-ID display problems on FXO ports, the following tips may be helpful:

•Disconnect the router from the phone line and attach a caller-ID equipped telephone to verify that the CO is sending caller-ID information:

-Listen and watch to see when the caller-ID information is displayed: before the first ring, after the first ring, or after the second ring?

-Make sure that the router configuration matches the timing of the display. If the phone is answered during the first ring, does this cause the phone not to display the caller-ID information? If so, the CO may be sending the caller-ID information after the first ring, requiring a change to a caller-ID alerting setting. Make sure the router is not configured to answer the call on the FXO before the Caller ID-information is received. If needed, increase the number of rings required before answering.

•Use the show call history command to check the information received by the caller ID receiver.

The following debug commands may be useful for analyzing problems:

•debug vpm signal

•debug vtsp dsp

•debug vtsp session

you can see at the last raw its giving caller id receive failed string no data so is that saying that the Tele company didn't enable the caller id yet???

please help

Caller-id can delivered differently by each carrier, I had a similiar issue and discovered that the telco was using polarity line reversal.

In this scernario, an FXO interface cannot detect line-reversal alerting in the on-hook state.

For this reason, DSPs must be pre-allocated to serve the Type 1 caller ID information when it arrives.

Preallocating the DSPs enables the DSP to continuously monitor for the arrival of caller-ID information.

Configure this command 'caller-id alerting

dsp-pre-alloc' on the FXO port when the incoming subscriber telephone line uses line polarity reversal to signal the start of caller-ID information transmission.

thnx for the fast reply...

so all i need is to run this command on each FXO port right?

Correct, an example is as follows:-

voice-port 0/3/0

cptone GB

timing sup-disconnect 85

connection plar opx 1000

impedance complex2

caller-id alerting dsp-pre-allocate

i applies the below commands on all the voice ports i got but still the same

cptone SA

timing sup-disconnect 85

impedance complex2

caller-id alerting dsp-pre-allocate

It is not necessary to configure the impedance complex, this automatically set when you specify the cptone.

Incidentally, have confirmed with the Telco that CLID is enabled?

The debug vpm signal should indicate whether the telco is using line-reversal for CLID, as it doesn't appear in the debug, it can mean either that CLID is not enabled or line-reversal is not used.

If CLID enabled and line-reversal, the you should see a similar debug as follows:-
