BG Account Codes
The BG Account Codes feature lets the subscriber add a number (the account code) into the CDR record for allocation of charges on billable calls (incoming or outgoing).
Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony includes account codes in CDR reports when configured to do so, the enterprise determines and maintains the correct lists of applicable account codes. You do not explicitly create them on Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony.
The system administrator specifies the number of digits of the account code. It can be from 2 to 14 digits long; its length is the same for all stations in a business group.
The BG Billing feature supports the MDR-RAO (Message Detail Recording - Regional Accounting Office) per GR-610 MDR (Message Detail Recording) (FSD 02-02-1110).
This capability can be turned on or off on a per BG basis.
When BG Billing is enabled, CDR provides the following data for calls from and to the BG as applicable:
Customer identificationBG Department Names)
Originating or terminating facility type
Originating or terminating facility identification
Call completion code
Business feature code
AAR (Automatic Alternate Routing) pattern group
Queue elapsed time
The CDR record provides the department name.
MDR (Message Detail Recording)
The MDR feature provides the capability to include BG Billing information in a Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony CDR for a BG call.
MDR information is provisioned on the BG to provide enough information in the Call Context CDR to support the generation of BAF (Billing AMA Format, AMA = Automatic Message Accounting) MDR modules that are appended to the BAF AMA base structure records, upon mediation of these CDRs for calls originating/terminating from/to BG facilities.
The MDR Customer Identification
must be unique for each BG. The MDR information is applicable to the BG only and cannot be provisioned at the BGL (Business Group Line) level.
When the BG or system administrator enables MDR for a BG, Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony populates additional fields, which are specific to the BG, in a standard CDR for any call involving a member of that group.
