CIS Solution Overview

Passive Recording Mode

Passive Recording Mode

Supports any version of Cisco IP phones.

A configuration of port mirroring (SPAN) on the network switch is required.

The switch mirrors the signaling packets to Crystal Quality call recording system (Skinny or SIP UDP or SIP TCP) and the voice (RTP).

The Crystal Quality recording system decodes incoming data packets to provide original conversations and information like CID and extension number.

This configuration is generally used in SMB and small Call / Contact centers environments, with simple network configuration, and no need for CTI information. It uses on/off-hook events to start and stop recording. Can be based on static IP or DHCP environment, Extension Number, MAC Address, IP address. Only one is required in order to map the VoIP data stream to physical agent stations or extensions.

Free seating is supported on passive mode.

Active Recording Mode (Built-In-Bridge + TAPI)

In active mode, the CUCM (Cisco Unified Call Manager) establishes a SIP Trunk with Crystal Quality recording system and triggers the Cisco IP phone to duplicate and forward VoIP packets (RTP) directly to the Crystal Quality Recorder, relying on the Cisco phone’s forwarding capabilities (BIB, Built-in-bridge). The Crystal Quality recording system uses JTAPI\TAPI links to the CUCM to receive call information (e.g., extension number).

Active Recording mode in Cisco environments resolves many limitations cited in using the passive recording mode and is the best solution for large sites or customers with multiple branches to record, or multiple devices with the same extension number.

Avdor CIS Call Recording now supports recording of Encrypted calls via BIB!

Active Recording Mode - SIP Fork


This approach is ideal where the IP phones are off-site, in remote locations, or in situations where the network solution would be overly complicated.
In addition, it simplifies recording only external calls.

A stream received from the Cisco ISR acts as the gate to the PSTN, but only when using SIPT or SIP connection to the provider.

Cisco Jabber Call Recording Solution

CIS Crystal Quality Call recording and monitoring solution records Cisco Jabber and Jabber mobile.

Note: In order to record Cisco Jabber mobile CM and Expressway – it must be updated to one of the latest releases.

UCCE Integration

Crystal Quality Call recording and monitoring solution uses the socket connect to the PG server.

Call information is collected from the PG server such as: Extension, connectionID, AgentID, callerID, calledID, call direction, and route call key id, route call key day and more.

CIS recording systems are officially certified by Cisco as supporting all their unified communication systems.

Backup Scenarios

  • CQ servers are Active all time
  • Both CQ servers register to UCCW-PG server for Agent and call ID
  • Cisco CUCM holds 2 SIPT to the two CQ servers. Under the Route Pattern to recorder
  • If server CQ – 1 is down Cisco sends the call duplication to CQ-2
