PBX Data Logger captures SMDR or CDR data from RS232, RS845, TCP or UDP ports and can write it to various files or databases.    

Brief description:

The Private Branch eXchange (also called PBX or Private Business Exchange) is a telephone switching center that is owned by a private business, compared to one that is owned by the common carrier or telephone company. In Europe, the term PABX (Private Automatic Branch eXchange) is often used. The call records from the PBX are called SMDR, CDR, or CIL. Most PBXs offer the following interfaces for collecting data from the PBX. Our software supports all of them:

Serial interface - historically used to print every call record to a serial printer.

Network Port (Listen mode) - where Advanced PBX Data Logger acts as a client and connects to the TCP or UDP port on the PBX. The PBX then starts streaming information down to the application.

Network Port (Server mode) - PBX Logger acts as a server. A PBX initiates a connection with Advanced PBX Data Logger.

Advanced PBX Data Logger enables users to record, track, and archive phone calls and capture SMDR, CDR, or CIR data from RS232, RS845, TCP or UDP ports.
