We've received the following from a T1 provider. We're trying to send
the caller name, but it's not being propagated:
"Your equipment is using the Nortel specification of q.931, not the
ANSI/ISO specification of q.931. The Nortel version precedes the name
with an escape character which the switch is interpreting as a 1.
The solution is to ensure your equipment is set to the proper
switch type, namely NI-1 or NI-2 (as opposed to a Nortel switch type
Additional note: If you are using an Asterisk box with libpri, I
am told that the Nortel spec is hardcoded into its behaviour (no matter
what switch type is selected), in which case you should contact your
vendor for updates to libpri (or contract some programmers to make the
appropriate patches if you're supporting this in-house)."
I've had a look through the libpri code, and don't see the escape
character or Nortel specific code. Can anyone please point me to the
correct place, or to a patch?
