What can Nexmo do with inbound CLI?

Questions:

  • Can Nexmo transfer inbound Caller ID?
  • What is CLI?
  • Does Nexmo support CLI?

Answer:

CLI stands for Caller Line Identity, otherwise known as Caller ID.

CLI (Caller Line Identity/Caller ID)for in-country originating calls is regularly tested and is confirmed to be supported for all of our virtual numbers.

You can find information on specific countries' numbers' support for international CLI in the Voice Numbers Features Overview.

Generally CLI will be transferred only if the originator or caller's carrier passes the CLI transparently to our network. If the originating carrier hides CLI it cannot be transferred.
