RP 2.0 And DC4 Data Collector Devices

The RP 2.0 or DC4 data collection device must be installed to accompany the PBX. The collection of CDRs arriving from the PBX may be done in two possible ways:

  • through serial communications cable (RS-232, the distance between the data collection device and the PBX cannot be longer than 10 meters);
  • through IP port, in this case the IP port of the PBX and the IP terminal in the data collecting box will be connected with Ethernet patch cable (only the RP 2.0 is capable of this).

The data collection device stores the CDRs temporarily. The maximum storable amount of data depends on the device’s memory capability and the lengths of the CDRs. The following chart contains common values.

Memory sizeStorage capacity
(maximum record number)
1 MB 32.000 pcs
2 MB 64.000 pcs
4 MB 128.000 pcs

Possibilities of read-outs of the records temporarily stored in the data collection devices:

  • Direct read-out: through serial communications cable (RS-232, max. 10 meters). In this case data collection device is installed between the PBX and the PC dedicated to the telecom tariffing system for (data) safety reasons (the PC does not have to be turned on continually).
  • Remote read-out through modem. A modem is installed into the data collection device, which connects the telephone network through and extension. The read-out of stored records is accomplished through the telephone line, with the aid of the modem installed to accompany the telecom tariffing system (it may be internal, extension-extension connection, but the read-out may be possible via public telephone network, too).
  • Remote read-out through TCP/IP. A LAN adapter is installed into the data collection device. Through this interface the data collecting box is able to connect the IT network. In order to achieve record read-out, it is required for the PC dedicated to the telecom tariffing system to connect the same IT network.

CompArgo provides special data collecting box read-out software in order to help with the right operation of the device. With the help of this software it is possible to configure, maintain the device and read-out its records. The data collecting boxes employ unique compression/encryption procedure, that can be operated (only) by the read-out software. The read-out software provides the raw records for the telecom tariffing system in an interpretable form.

Two basic opportunities exist for the read-out of stored records from the data collection device:

  • The boxes automatically send the stored records to the Data Collecting Box Read-out Software and thus to the telecom tariffing system. The automatic data transfer may occur because of reaching the pre-set critical record number, or the pre-set timing.
  • The read-out of the boxes may be initiated by the Data Collecting Box Read-out Software too. This might occur on purpose (by the User) or automatically. Automatic read-out occurs by the read-out server, if the expected records were not sent by the direct call number disposing data collection device (traffic monitoring function).
