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 call recording solutions operate with one of these signaling protocols, the calls can be recorded by MiaRec.
- Server for MiaRec
- Network Switch with Port Mirroring support (see A list of Switches with port mirroring)
The Port Mirroring function should be configured on the switch (see What is Port Mirroring?).
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.
