IPT=IP Telephony. A more general term that encompasses all references to voice over
packet networks (VoIP, VoFR, VoATM, VoCH/BW [coathanger/barbed-wire]) rather than circuit
Why not just buy the numbers from the carrier and have them forward them at the CO? Very
few, if any, carriers in North America actually require you to have physical facilities.
I would expect it's not usually a requirement in other countries either.
In the configuration you have, you are having the router set up a new call to your main
location. The CLID will show the CLID that the router sent out during call setup. Some
carriers let you send any number (such as the original number of the caller you are
forwarding), and some carriers limit your outbound CLID to numbers that have been
assigned to your trunk group.
Either way, I don't know how to assign the outbound CLID with a router.
