Asterisk Call Recording

MiaRec is compatible with Asterisk open-source PBX and other Asterisk-based telephone systems, like Digium Switchvox, Fonality Trixbox etc.

MiaRec uses unobtrusive packet sniffing technology for recording calls of Asterisk. Following protocols are supported by MiaRec: SIP, H.323, Cisco Skinny and MGCP. Whenever Asterisk operates with one of these signaling protocols, then calls can be recorded by MiaRec.

Requirements:

The Port Mirroring function should be configured on the switch (see What is Port Mirroring?).

MiaRec_IPPhones_and_PBX

Connect Asterisk IP PBX through a switch, which supports port mirroring (as shown on the network diagram).

Configure port mirroring on that switch according to the following instructions:

  • Asterisk port should be configured as a source for port mirroring sessions.
  • MiaRec port should be configured as a destination for port mirroring sessions.

Such configuration will allow call recording on Asterisk.
