This application generates a signal that in-band progress information is provided to the calling channel. This is also known as "early audio" and "early B3", for example, see Dial option /b in chan_capi-cm. Early audio also needs to be supported by the carrier in order to work for the caller.
Application Progress() is typically used in conjunction with Playback and its 'noanswer' option (previously 'n' option).
On an unanswered SIP channel this sends the message "183 Session Progress" to the endpoint. Starting with Asterisk 1.6.2: SIP no longer sends the 183 progress message for early media by default. Applications requiring early media should use the progress() dialplan app to generate the progress message.

ISDN incoming call - inband info and announcements BEFORE ANSWERQuestion: Is there a way to force Asterisk to send DSS1 PROGRESS message to PSTN with indicator: "Inband information now available", before call is established (even before ALERTING phase)? I also think that this indicator can be contained in CALL PROCEEDING message.
My idea is to play not billed welcome message on Asterisk system. Just now there is incoming SETUP, Asterisk replies with CALL PROCEEDING (without indicator I presume - but I can think only from Asterisk trace, no ISDN tester available at the moment). In ideal case there should be send PROGRESS or CALL PROCEEDING message with that indicator.
How to setup this (for PRI and junghanns.net BRI)?
Answer: Use the Progress() application in your dial plan before you Answer() the line. Use the Background() application with the 'n' flag or the Playback() application with the 'noanswer' flag to play your announcement, so that the line is not answered automatically for you.
