Configuring your SMDR output

Before enabling the SMDR output, you will need to speak with your phone maintainer to buy the required licenses for your Alcatel phone system.

Follow the instructions below to configure the SMDR output for your Alcatel OmniPCX Office phone system:

Alcatel-Lucent OmniPCX Office Communication Server supports two types of call metering:

  • IP metering supports IP printing for call metering tickets originating from a 3rd party application (Business or Hotel) via an IP connection

The type of metering must be specified when the Office Link driver is installed. The driver can be set to one of two modes: hotel or metering. You can use the OMC Counting function to specify the type of call metering for hardcopy printouts.

To set printing options for call metering tickets, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Counting function window in the OMC console and select the Accounting Printout tab.
  2. Select the metering type from the drop-down list:  Ext. Accounting Activation IP.
  3. Click OK to save the settings.
