Caller id – what is it, and how does it work?
The Caller ID service reflects your outgoing number from the person you are calling. The received data makes it possible for him to call you back through the SIP application, you can also set up forwarding of virtual calls to a cloud phone from a virtual PBX.
If you have connected several IP phones in different countries, then you have access to calls with a number change. That is, when dialing a subscriber from a third country, one of the available numbers will be displayed.
HotTelecom subscribers can set the personal settings and show Caller ID both for virtual phones and for Toll-Free 800 themselves through the personal account. This option will help to improve the quality of communication due to additional functions in the form of a greeting, a background screen saver, the ability to record calls, etc.

- the ability to receive a return call from the subscriber;
- affordable tariffs and clear settings for forwarding.

Is there a difference between ANI and Caller ID?
Many people think that ANI and Caller ID are the same. In terms of their functionality, they are really similar, since they perform the main function – they automatically determine the number.
ANI is a more outdated technology, it works unstable. Caller id is a more modern standard that identifies an incoming call even before connecting.
The ability to identify outgoing calls and change the number significantly expands the options of virtual telephony, and also helps the owners of such phones to make communication more comfortable.
Besides, with Caller ID, the operator receives information about the calling subscriber in an undistorted form, and the ANI is built entirely on analog signals. A Caller ID identifies the number after picking up the phone, and a Caller ID carries out identification before connection.
