Configuring an Outbound Caller ID
Grandstream offers many ways to configure a caller ID on your SIP trunk, but by far the most straightforward process is to enable a Global Outbound CID under PBX Settings > General Settings.
If you would instead prefer to enable caller ID on each extension, you can do so by selecting Extension / Trunk > Extensions and adding a CallerID Number.
Lastly, if you prefer to enable a caller ID on the outbound route, you select Extension / Trunk > Outbound Routes and enter the desired caller ID in the "Outbound Route CID" field.
For further information on caller IDs, please view our caller ID number policy for information on enabling a caller ID override from within the Telnyx portal.
