Virtual call recording device for Voice Over IP telephony with SIP signalling (session initiation protocol). The solution allows operation of SIP recorders in parallel with recorders for analogue or ISDN phone lines.
Users can easily migrate to packet switched telephony using the same call recorder as classical phone lines.
MTY EYE SIP is a software only solution. The digital data packets are captured by a PC network card running the MTY EYE software. A license file is used to create a virtual device that has been tied to the MAC address of the network interface card used to capture the packets. The number of recording channels can be in the range of 2 to 128 channels. Evaluation of the product is possible by using a time limited evaluation license file.
There are many different techniques to tap a local area network for packet capture. Profishark 100s Aggregated Ethernet tap physically connects to the Ethernet link and provides data transfer to the PC via USB. Another option is to use a monitoring port or a mirroring port of an Ethernet switch.
If a “soft PBX” is running on a PC, the MTY EYE SIP software can also be installed, reading from the same network interface card as the soft PBX. Other options (broadcast media, hubbing out, PC-in-the-middle etc.) may be suitable depending on network conditions.
