Blocking incoming private calls on CME

I have a customer running CME. They would like to block incoming calls that have caller-ID blocked (shows as 'Private' on the phone). Is there a way to do this on CME, especially without also blocking incoming calls from a no-caller-ID origination? I think I can set up a filter on a null string in the c alling number field, but I suspect that would also block users with no caller ID at their end. Thanks

Re: Blocking incoming private calls on CME

You are correct. There is no native way in CME to differentiate calls that come with an explicitly blocked CLID.

I may think there could be a way using TCL/IVR, but I'm not sure either.

Sometime however telco has an option so that such calls are rejected at the switch, have you tried asking them ?

Thanks. That's what I was afraid of - I have not pursued the telco angle, but will check it out.
