Caller Name (CNAM)

Caller Name (CNAM) is a component of Caller ID. It refers to the caller ID name that is displayed on an incoming phone call. When Bandwidth delivers an inbound phone call, our customers can use an API function called ‘CNAM Lookup’ to input the phone number, and query the caller ID. You can think of it as ‘do it yourself’ caller ID.
