Overview

CDRv5Collector is a set of Windows programs that sniff VoIP telephone network and generates Call Details Records (CDRs) and Call Progress Messages (CPMs) that can be forwarded to the CDRv5 reporting software.

  • Install network sniffing devices (probes) on the telephone network. This could be 1) a mirrored port on a switch, 2) a network tapping device or 2) a dumb netowrk hub.
  • Install a Windows computer with three network cards. Connect each probe to the computer network card. Note the 3rd network card will be used to provide a feed to the CDRv5 reporting software.
    • Server class hardware is recommended
    • Windows 7 or later
    • Hard drive space of 30MB for the programs plus 600MB per million calls.
