BIB Call Recording for Cisco Solutions
Versadial's call recording software is capable of recording on Cisco's CallManager platform by taking advantage of the Built-In-Bridge feature. The BIB eliminates the need for configuring a SPAN Mirror port on your network switch and utilizes the features built into Cisco's Unified CallManager and certain VoIP phones.

Cisco Built-In-Bridge (BIB) Recording
The Cisco built-in bridge (BIB) is a functionality for monitoring and recording voice communications on Cisco’s Unified CallManager (UCM) version 6.0 and higher. The BIB method does not require a mirror or span port on the network switch. This is available with Cisco’s 3rd generation VoIP Phones (Phone 7911G, 7931G, 7941G, 7941G-GE, 7961G, 7961G-GE, 7970G, 7971G-GE and other models) and supported on Cisco’s UCM version 6.0 and higher.
The Cisco phones that need to be recorded will be assigned a “Recording Profile.” According to Cisco’s Unified CallManager recording and monitoring instructions.
The Versadial recorder is configured in UCM as a SIP trunk and is assigned a route pattern. The recording profile is linked to the SIP trunk using the Route Pattern in UCM.
When the actual agent-customer call takes place, the UCM sends the calls to the Versadial recorder for recording. This configuration is very useful in supporting call recordings for multiple sites with a centralized recording solution.
