Call Detail Records (CDR) Logging

NOTE: Call Detail Records and Emergency Alerting—These features are currently in development and are not intended for production use.

BE4000 allows you to generate the call detail records (CDR) reports after the site is successfully deployed. The CDR report is generated based on the successful incoming and outgoing external calls that are made per customer site for a specific date range. The report includes details such as the calling and called numbers, location, time, and duration of each call.

NOTE:

  • You cannot configure CDR during initial site deployment.
  • The calls that are made within the organization is not captured in the CDR reports.

You can generate the following types of reports:

  • Call History
  • Busy Hours
  • Concurrent Calls

You can download a local copy of the Call History CDR reports.

Currently, all CDR reports are retained indefinitely, unless CDR collection is disabled. However, the CDR report retention period is subjected to change in the future.

NOTE: If CDR collection is disabled, all previously collected call detail records get deleted and cannot be recovered.
