Caller ID Services

Bandwidth Caller ID Services are available for both inbound and outbound calls in North America. With Caller Name Services, you can:

Inbound Caller ID (CNAM)

Bandwidth’s Inbound Caller ID service (also referred to as CNAM) supports links to over 900 operators that provide more than 400 million calling records— so you can deliver high-quality calling name services in the industry with conviction. This service gives you full command and access to calling party names from wireless, wireline, and IP-based operators who provide their subscribers with caller name identification services.

Once enabled, the Bandwidth CNAM service automatically queries for caller names from service providers who support caller names for their subscribers. The CNAM service ensures caller name accuracy by supporting near-real-time updates from North American Line Information Databases (LIDBs) being fed by over 1,000 landline, wireless, cable, and VoIP service providers.

Outbound Caller ID (LIDB)

Bandwidth’s Outbound Caller ID Service (also referred to as LIDB services) provides extensive coverage to ensure your customers’ satisfaction by delivering calling name data to more regions more often. To simplify data storage and maintenance, Bandwidth provides both a dashboard web interface and APIs that enable you to make changes to individual records in real time 24 hours a day. We take the burden of data management off your hands with flexible administration options that allow you to manage data the way you want.

Directory Listings & Assistance Publishing Services

This end-to-end workflow model produces fewer errors, less fallout, and higher throughput, resulting in an overall reduction in operational overhead. Key benefits include:
