VoIP, short for ‘Voice over Internet Protocol’, is the transport of voice communications and multimedia sessions over Internet Protocol (IP) networks rather than through the old telephony technology of PSTN.
Voice is converted to voice data packets that are transferred to and from your network to your VoIP carrier.
Because it’s a digital service it is often cheaper and allows access to other feature-rich services like CallN call recording and call analytics.
Port Mirroring’ is a feature of an Ethernet/network switch that takes a copy of all network traffic seen on one or more ports connected to your VoIP handsets, soft-phone computers or mobile devices) and sends it to a specified port where the CallN Thin Client software can analyse and collect a copy of VoIP calls and securely upload them to your CallN account as recordings. Please see our Port Mirroring page for more detail.
When uploading recordings or accessing your account via a web browser, a 2048-bit secure SSL certificate is always used. This encrypted communication is both secure and private. We believe that the security of your data is paramount, and we take the security of your data very seriously. We offer “industry standard” security and encryption from the cloud through every point of the journey that your call recording takes right to your computer. For more information please visit our Security as a Feature page.
Recordings are hosted on highly available/redundant and distributed architecture in the cloud. With hardware redundancy and multiple site replication, our cloud service boasts 99.9999% durability and 99.99% availability. Additionally, we now offer customers the ability to keep their data in the country (or region) that is pertinent to them to address data sovereignty concerns. So, for example, Australian data is stored in Australia, EU data in the EU and US customers will continue to have their data stored in the US.
