  • Page 4: Product Description

    Product Description MyCalls is a complete call management package that can be used monitor phone system activity and performance. It works by gathering call information from the SV8100 and storing it in a database. The MyCalls application can then be used to run reports and view real time information from the MyCalls database.
  • Page 5: Requirements

    Requirements Telephone System An SV8100 Telephone System running system software version 1 or greater. The appropriate level of PC programming should also be used. A connection to the SV8100 MIS and SMDR output. Please refer to the ‘SV8100 programming’ section of the manual for further details. MyCalls PC Specification Minimum Specification Server Intel based processor 2.5GHz...
  • Page 6: Sv8100 Programming

    SV8100 Programming MyCalls requires two TCP connections to the SV8100 in order to work, SMDR and P Command. SMDR is used to provide call information after calls has completed. P Commands are used to display real time information such as extension status and calls in queue information. The output can be either collected from the Ethernet port on the CCPU or from an IPLA port if one is installed, the programming sequence on the SV8100 is the same regardless of which port the data is gathered from.
  • Page 7 Browse and locate the MyCallsv1.pcs (Usually located in c:\program files\SV8100 Application Suite\ NEC Philips SV8100 PC Pro\Cygnus\Philips\01_00\scripts folder.)

  • Page 75: Exact Channel Mapping

    Exact Channel Mapping MyCalls uses a best effort matching system to tag calls in the recorded calls database with calls in the MyCalls database. In some circumstances MyCalls cannot guarantee to correctly match the correct call in the two databases. In order to get around this problem Exact Channel Mapping can be used. Exact Channel Mapping is recommended for sites that take a large number of calls on one particular DDI or where multiple Call Recording units are used.
  • Page 76 If trunk 1 on the PBX is connected to the first port of the recorder, click the Assign button to configure the Channel Mapping. When you have clicked the Assign button, use the drop down menus to assign trunk 1, unit ID 1, Port 1 and Channel 0.
  • Page 77 NOTE: With Primary Rate ISDN the Channel Numbers do not run sequentially from 1-30 as usually expected. This is an industry standard and not specific to NEC Infrontia equipment. The reason for this is that on Primary Rate there are 30 B channels and 2 D channels. B Channels are used for calls only.
  • Page 78 The following table shows how to configure the other trunks. Take note that ISDN Channel Numbers 16 and 32 should not be assigned to any trunks for the reason previously explained. SV8100 Trunk Unit ID Port ISDN Channel Number Configure all the trunks as required and click OK to save the changes to the recorder configuration, then OK to save the changes to the PBX configuration.
  • Page 79 Multiple Units When using multiple units, the same concept applies to the Channel Mapping for each trunk on the PBX. The only difference is each Call Recording unit must be given a unique ID; this would usually be 1, 2, 3 or 4 as applicable. By default each unit comes with unit ID 1. The following procedure describes how to change the ID of a Call Recording unit.

Close the console.exe application down once you have checked the CSID’s. The following tables show different examples of configurations and how Exact Channel Mapping should be configured in these scenarios.
