The PollCat NetLink II Call Accounting Terminal is a highly reliable,
PBX data recorder designed for SMDR/CDR data collection and alarm
monitoring. The NetLink II can collect data from an RSP compatible PBX
via a TCP/IP connection, and can also collect data from a conventional PBX
switch via a serial port connection. Collected call records can be retrieved
via TCP/IP network, via FTP client, via modem, or by a local PC connected
directly to the NetLink II unit.
In addition to storing call data, NetLink II can also monitor call records
for suspicious phone activity or critical alarm conditions. When an alarm
is detected, the unit can immediately notify the proper personnel by pager,
modem, email or SNMP trap. The NetLink II also provides secure access to
connected serial devices such as PBX maintenance ports or Console/AUX
Network and Modem Access
All command functions, including data retrieval and unit conﬁguration,
can be accessed via network, modem or local PC. When the NetLink II is
installed in a TCP/IP environment, Telnet is used to access the command
mode. If out-of-band access is required, you can also dial-up NetLink II’s
internal modem. Stored data can be reliably retrieved using your terminal
emulation program, or SFTP/FTP client. Password protection and dialback
security prevent unauthorized access to control functions.
In addition to collecting data via a conventional serial port connection to
your PBX switch, the NetLink II can also collect data from remote RSP
compatible PBX switches such as an Avaya PBX. Call records are sent
from the RSP format PBX to the NetLink II unit via a TCP/IP connection,
and then stored safely until they are needed by your call accounting system.
Nonvolatile Flash Memory
NetLink II uses reliable, low-cost ﬂash memory to store operating
parameters and conﬁguration information This eliminates the need to
check and replace depleted batteries. If power to the unit is interrupted or
disconnected, stored parameters can be retained for up to one year. Call
records are stored on reliable, battery backed SRAM memory.
