About Advanced PBX Data Logger
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 PBX offers the following interfaces for collecting data from the PBX:
•Serial interface - historically used to print every call record to a serial printer. Now our software can capture data from this port.
•Network Port (Listen mode) - where Advanced PBX Data Logger connects to the TCP or UDP port. The PBX then starts streaming information down to the application.
•Network Port (Server mode) - The PBX connects to Advanced PBX Data Logger.
Advanced PBX Data Logger enables users to record, track and archive phone calls and can capture SMDR or CIR data from RS232, RS845, TCP or UDP ports, custom processes it to your needs, then extracts variables with the data from data packets and transfers the data to a text or binary file, database, DDE, OPC.
