Configuring your SMDR output

The BT Versatility outputs its SMDR data via a serial port. The default communication parameters for this serial connection are:

  • Speed – 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400 or 115200 bps;
  • Data - 8 bits;
  • Parity - None.

The phone system has an in-built buffer to store the last 500 call records in case the receiving equipment becomes disconnected. This buffered data can be set to output to the serial port during system programming. An X-ON/X-OFF signal can be enabled to allow the Versatility to detect if a compatible device is receiving its SMDR data successfully. The Versatility can also be set to output SMDR data using restricted call logging, whereby the last four digits of any dialled number is masked out.
