So with the supervision flag set to on, the SMDR will not start until it sees a connection, or does the Mitel still look at the seizure of the trunk and then start SMDR?

The smdr record for the mitel is always generated from the time the trunk was seized. With supervision enabled in the trunk descriptor, the record will place an A in column 60 if answer supervision is received.

Ok if the record is generated from the trunk seizure and the A is placed in column 60, what record would be sent to the InnForm? For example if someone calls and the phone rings 10 times: the distant end finally answers, and they talk for 30 seconds. What will be the total time of the call to be billed by InnForm?

As stated the duration is from the time the trunk was seized.

Thank you again. What is the best of preferred way using the Mitel and the InnForm software to get accurate records? If the actuall call is only 1 minute but the trunk was seized for lets say 1 minute 15 seconds which includes the ring back time. Does the guest still get billed for 1 minute 15 seconds?

FWIW,

Usually the defaults are used, i.e. 30 second grace period on LD calls, flat or free local. If you find from examination of your bills that an excessive number of calls are billed for less than the 30 second g.p., you can lessen it. But like OBTW said, most will use their cell phones. True costs of operation should be reflected in the room cost not the phone bill.

I have a problem
Site : Egypt
The mitel smdr record isn't generated from the moment the trunk is seized ma be after 40 second from the moment is seized or more
some times no duration in smdr logs but date and time and extension and external number appear and the call succeed

Mohamed,

It might have been better to start a new thread - what kind of Mitel do you have?

How can we start the smdr record once the call has been connected and not once the trunk is seized? I also work on the Siemens 9006 hicom with Infortel for windows. We bill on the far end connect not on a grace period or trunk seizure. Any suggestions on the Mitel / Innform what can be done? Too many calls are being made during the 30 second grace period and connecting. We see the bill for the connect of course, but the graced period keeps it from logging. Thank you in advance.

If you are using PRI's, you get answer supervision. Analog trunks don't really provide that. T1's can, and most will, but that is really carrier and CO dependant. PRI's must as part of the spec.
