Ericsson BP-250 CDR Format

Ericsson BP-250 CDR Format

Hi there,

I'm capturing the CDR log from an Ericsson BP-250 used in a hotel. The lines look like this:

 1   2      3    4   5      6    7 8            9               10                        11 12        13 14   15 16          17                       18

00 168 170414 1134 #700 00029 0000      653                      A                      0015 A        0.00 I                                    985195309            

I could infere that column 2 is a serial line number, column 3 is the YYMMDD date format and column 4 is the HHMM time format, and both 3 and 4 columns referring to the call date and time. Probably column 11 holds the call duration?

Column 9, 17 and the last one having the phone or extension numbers, and column 15 having the room code.

But how can I say wich ones are incoming or outcoming calls? Could anybody help me to understand completely this cdr format? Is there any manual explaining the cdr formats?

Thank you.

RE: Ericsson BP-250 CDR Format

In cil4 character 66 is the Status Information2:

a is an outgoing call
A is an incoming call

You can find this infromations in the Interwork Desription for CIL 2/3/4

RE: Ericsson BP-250 CDR Format

Hi xs650,

I'm a complete newbie in that kind of parsing. Could you tell me about this "Interwork Desription for CIL 2/3/4". Is it some kind of Ericsson manual? Where can I find it? Any links?

Thank you very much.

RE: Ericsson BP-250 CDR Format

You are riding a dead horse, so the download sides are all closed for BusinessPhone.wink
Try to contact an old BusinessPhone reseller in your country or a distributor, maybe
they still have this doc.

It was part of the Hospitality Developers Kit.
