    Hi Anatoly,

    I am not very sure of the ANI field code page that you are referring to in this query. Please brief us your scenario, like where exactly you want the caller name to be used instead of the phone number?

    Thanks,
    Anusha

    Hello Anusha,
     
    Thank you for your answer. I'll try to explain more clearly. There is such configuration:  CUCM <- ip -> VOICE GW <- e1-> NEC PBX <-> PSTN.
    When call coming from PBX, ANI field is set to phone number of the calling party. I need to display name of the calling party on cisco phones. PBX doesnt forward to voice gateway such info.
    As I said I performed it by using some TCL script on voice gateway. Of course, I dont need to change ANI field i need to set caller name. The following line in the TCL script "set callInfo(displayInfo) $mytext"  used to  set caller name and I want to know is there any way to display the caller name in other languages. Does it supported?

    This is a interesting question. I think this question is more for IP Phone but not Tcl.

    You can save you Tcl script as UTF-8 encoding. But when you send it to IPPhone will it be accepted or not that's a question. Most of Cisco IP phone support multiple languages. Find a editor that you can save the file in different encoding. Like I am using TextWrangler on Mac, it allows me to save file in UFT-8 and other encoding.
    It's not difficult to try. Change IP phone language setting and save file as the UTF-8.
