Configuring your SMDR output

By default, the SMDR output in the Avaya Meridian Option Series is disabled. You need to speak to your system maintainer to have this enabled for incoming, outgoing and internal calls. Additionally, CLI, DNIS, response time and abandoned calls should be enabled for incoming calls.

You need to configure one of the  TTY ports on the Meridian to output SMDR information and connect a serial cable between this port and the PC running NetPBX.

Using the following commands, configure each option as shown below:

1. Enable CDR (command: LD 21)

2. Port Setup (command: LD 22)

3. CDR Format (commands: LD 22; LD 17)

CDR output port values:

Baud = 1200;

Data bits = 8;

Parity = None;

Stop bits = 1;

Flow control = DTR/RTS

Use CDR format #511 (Meridian / SL1-X11) or #526 (CS 1000 Rel 4+ / Meridian 1). 

Installing NetPBX

The Meridian sends SMDR information via a serial connection. To collect the data from the serial port and send it to TIM Plus, you first need to install the NetPBX software. For setup instructions, click on the link below:
