Summary

We tested the new version ASC EVOip Active (only active recording was tested), since it replaces the ASC's "MARATHON VoIP Collector".

The test were successful and all required tests were passed. As a result the ASC EVOip Active recording solution is qualified as a Recommended Product

The phone that records the call (e.g. IP240) creates a three party conference call between the caller and ASC EVOip Active recording software. Therefore a "normal"(using only the DSPs of the phone) three party conference between three phones is not possible, since the ASC recorder requires one DSP channel.

The configuration with ASC DataManager 2.9 is simple (see under related Articles 06_EVOip_active_f_r_Innovaphone_d_V.pdf), but in contrast to this manual we recommend to register phones via H.323 and not SIP. ASC EVOip must be registered via SIP at the PBX where the user-object of ASC EVOip is configured.


The recorded calls are stored with additional call informations. We verified them using ASC Webplay 10.0. The stored call informations were: start time, end time, duration, call direction, compression, own phone number, partner phone number and 3rd party phone number (if call forwarding is used) As you can see in the test results, we recommend to update your PBX/phones to v9 Hotfix 11 or later. Otherwise anonymous calls can not be recorded.

Configuration

This section describes how to configure the innovaphone PBX and phones in order to record calls using the ASC EVOip Active software. For informations how to configure EVOip Active, please read the current ASC manual.

It's highly recommended to register all innovaphone phones with H.323 at the PBX and only register the EVOip Active Server via SIP at the PBX. Sure, you can also use SIP to register phones, but recording will not working in many cases (i.e. Call forwarding, function keys with Group indications will not work).

So, it's important to understand that if you want to use all innovaphone features on your phone, register the phone via H.323.


1. Configure an User Object where EVOip Active will be registered

2. There is nothing special to configure at normal user objects


3. Activate your preferred recording option on a phone

- manual: recording can be started and stopped with the redial key or by a defined function key

- Transparent: recording is always on and can't be stopped by the user

- optional: recording starts automatically, but it can be stopped and started again with the redial key or by a defined function key
