The ATA will get the CID from the SIP header. Why would it wait for rings?

If asterisk were in front of the whole system and passing calls to the nortel PBX just to use the extensions, then why wouldn't * be passed through to Asterisk? Does a nortel system eat *s?

I suppose at that point one could just put in analog phones.

Didn't I see a ATA of sorts for Nortel phones. You plug in many nortel phones and they are proxied to SIP phones?
