Plus SMDI -- without it, things like the voicemail indicator (light or
stutter dialtone) -- on the served number don't work.
One of the NetBSD developers wrote an SMDI library for a company we both
worked at about a decade ago, which is now defunct. I should see who
owns that code, and if either of us happen to have it around.
SMDI can be encapsulated in ISDN D-channel signaling or just run over a
serial port. If asterisk can't do the latter it can't be too hard to
teach it to do so. I *might* have an SMDI specification around here
