We had the CDR problem recently and we start to look on what CDR should
Our special problem was that Yate is also a PBX and we must implement CDR
for stuff like transfers and conferences, and combinations between those.
In fact the problems seems to be that the telephony systems (call it
gateway, PBX whatever) know about channels, and the billing is made based
on calls not on channel.
In the end the best solutions seems to be compatibility with Cisco
systems, which consider each open channel a call leg (think especialy for
VoIP calls, where the channel is created for each call). So we actualy
send out of the system, via a database, or a file or whatever (Yate is
very flexibile so is never sure what you have outside), as acurate as
possibile and then we let the billing application to do his job. Normaly
billing application should be to define by certain rules what a "call"
means, and based on that information to calculate how much a "call" costs.
Gateway is the most simple case, you have 2 "call legs" which are defining
a "call", but think that if you have a calling card platform you will
probably want to bill only the voip call but for the one who generate the
How can you do all those combinations if you don't give out the call legs?
