USB Module
To keep the costs down – the recorder can be supplied as a USB module and recorder application software, allowing connection to an existing customer PC minimum specification. The module contains a voice recording board (PCB), which connects in parallel across each line to be recorded, the module then connects via USB to the PC. The PC is connected to the same network (LAN) as the telephone system allowing call logging SMDR/CDR data to be collected and stored in the recorder application database (MS SQL Express) and ‘tagged’ onto each recording.

Call Recorder with Application Server or PC
If required, the recorder can be supplied complete with an application server or PC, in this case a voice recorder board will be mounted inside the machine in a PCIe slot. This format would typically be supplied as tower format, although rack-mount, RAID and high availability server can be supplied as chargeable options. Prices for these options are available upon request.

Customer supplied PC for USB recorder
If a customer is supplying their own PC, it is important that it meets the minimum specifications. Some of the important things to bear in mind would be as follows:

  • PC should be at least a dual core machine running a Microsoft business operating system (i.e. not a “Home” edition).
  • Smaller sites can be supported by 2GB RAM although 4GB or more is advisable.
  • A HDD suitable to store the recordings would typically be 500GB, 1TB or above.
  • For digital or analogue lines, the USB box or PC should be no further than 2m from the telephone system.

Customer supplied PC for SIP recorder
If a customer is supplying their own PC for a SIP installation, it is important that it meets the minimum specifications. Some additional things to bear in mind for SIP installations would be as follows:

  • PC will require a free USB port (for the licensing dongle)
  • PC will require a second NIC card (or dual NIC card). One port connects PC to LAN, second port connected to mirrored port for SIP traffic.
  • SIP port will need to be mirrored on a data switch; original port goes to telephone system, mirrored port goes to the recorder.
