In normal, when an incoming call is received, the called party can only see the caller number. The called party cannot know who is calling unless the called user remembers these incoming calls' numbers. It is very hard.
The better way is that the SIP phone displays who is calling. For example, if the call is coming and the caller number is '101', the phone displays that 'Gilson' is the caller.
Cloud miniSIPServer provides "Caller display number" service to fit this requirement. You can configure display number for each caller number you want, miniSIPServer will send both these numbers or only display number to the called party to show who is calling.
Click menu "Services / Caller display number" to show and edit records.
