Ribbon SBC (RADIUS). SMDR/CDR data format and connection settings

This data is being extracted with help of the "Advanced PBX Data Logger" software only. It may not applicable for other software titles.

Configuring connection with RADIUS accounting server on Ribbon SBC

  1. First, verify if your Ribbon SBC has a license for CDR. The "CDR" feature should be listed in the table located in the "Left menu - System - Licensing - Current Licenses)".
  2. Next, access the Ribbon SBC WebUI and navigate to "Auth and Directory Services → RADIUS → RADIUS Servers". Then, click on the "Green plus" icon in the center to create a new server.
  3. Configure the connection by providing the necessary details for our basic RADIUS call accounting server. In the "RADIUS Server" field, enter the IP address of the computer with our logger. The default port number is 1813. Choose any shared secret value.
  4. If everything is configured correctly, you should observe "Up" in the "Server Connectivity" column.

RADIUS specific settings in PBX Logger

Specify the shared secret word that you've configured in PBX in the PBX Logger settings (Configuration → Modules → Query Parse Filter → Setup).

RADIUS Server Shared Secret

Please note that our software can only decode accounting data. Therefore, if possible in the PBX settings, please disable the sending of authentication data to our basic RADIUS server.

Configuring Advanced PBX Data Logger as a UDP server

Advanced PBX Data Logger should be configured to the UDP server mode and listen on (see below). The IP address allows receiving data from all network connections on your computer. The port number should match the value from the SMDR settings in your Ribbon SBC [RADIUS].

1. Add a new configuration with the UDP data source (if you didn't it before).

2. Configure the IP settings as shown below.
