XL-Telecom SCSI


Switches record call data in files known as CDRs (Call Detail Records) or just billing records. This record contains the details of every phone call made. In medium and large local exchange carriers, the switches have to be scattered geographically between regions or states. Some switches provide these records through a tape drive. XL-Telecom works out as a SCSI tape drive emulator (MTE - Magnetic Tape Emulator).

XL-Telecom SCSI is a solution designed specifically for switch data collection provided by a tape drive interface through the company network. It is able to receive, send and store the data for billing, anti-fraud, traffic control systems among others. A XL-Telecom SCSI collector advantage is the switch type abstraction for systems that process this data. This collector provides a consistent and reliable platform for collecting data through features specifically designed for critical applications that must run continuously, supporting network failures and maintenance in the target systems without data loss.
