EWSD,5ESS,AXE-10, OCB and CDOT Exchanges only)

CDR Based Audit System (CDRAS 1.0.2 V) for Level-I TAX /Level II TAX and SDCC
Tandem Exchanges of EWSD, OCB, AXE-10, 5ESS and CDOT Technologies
1

Introduction: Consequent to the commissioning of IOBAS the ASPs of IOBAS are collecting the
raw CDR files from the respective POIs through different network elements on regular basis and
generating the Invoices against the OLOs(Other License Operators) at the end of the month. At
the same time, It is vital to have an information about Total No. Of CDR Records, Total No. Of
Calls (I/C and O/G), MCU details etc with the POI In-charge for the verification of the Invoice and
Statements generated by the ASP. It is learnt that the POI In-charges and the concerned officers
finding it difficult to compare the correctness of the Bills. Therefore IT Project Circle has developed
a user-friendly tool, which enables the user to get the summary of details of the CDRs that he is
dumping in the POI-PC which enables him to verify the Invoices that are generated by the ASPs of
IOBAS.

Where it can be implemented: This System can be implemented at any of the POIs of EWSD,
OCB, AXE-10, 5ESS and CDOT Technologies.

Hardware: Any PC with normal configuration can be used for this purpose. However for POIs
where large Data is there, Pentium IV with 256 MB RAM can be used.

Software: Operating System can be Windows -95 or above. No additional software is needed
other than the Application software CDRAS 1.0.2V.

How to load the CDR Data on to the PC:


a) EWSD: Incase of EWSD Exchange the CDR data i.e. the AMA file that is taken daily has to be
copied onto the PC in a separate folder. The AMA file can be copied either by using OpenFT
Utility or can be copied directly from the MOD, if MOD reader exists.
b) OCB: In case of OCB exchange the CDR data can be loaded through data cartridge using
NOVAXCHANGE Software.
c) CDOT: In case of CDOT exchange the data can be loaded to PC using zmodem in Hyper
Terminal. (All Windows Operating Systems come with HyperTerminal Communication tool.)
Or
Data can be copied from the Cartridge directly to the PC if Cartridge Drive is available in the PC.
d) AXE-10: Data can be copied on to the System using the OD reader or directly from Switch
using Man Machine Commands.
e) 5ESS: Data can be copied on to the System using the DAT Drive.
(* If the Data Drives mentioned above are existing in any existing UNIX Server then the data can
be copied first on to Unix System and then copied on to the CD for further processing with
CDRAS.
** The PC with Cartridge Drive and Nova Exchange Software Version 3.0, that is meant for OCB
can be used for CDOT also for downloading the CDOT backup, by choosing the option tar-in and
tar-out)

Installation Procedure for Downloaded Package: Copy the cdras1.0.2 in a temporary folder
and unzip it. Choose the proper batch file for installation. For example run WXP_INST.BAT, if the

10. Audit: Through this option POI In-charge can select the file (See Fig.5), which has to be
processed (Click on Run Audit for process). Multiple file selection is also possible for which you
need to select Bulk Process under Process Options which is available in the Options Tab. The
Batch file can be prepared by clicking the Prepare Batch file Option under Audit Tab.
Audit performs the following .
i. It converts the Binary File into a dbf file.
ii. Then creates a summary file ( tgpaudit.dbf.) Tgp-wise and Date-wise.
( It does not perform any other operation like categorizing, rating etc. The process
will take 3 to 5 minutes to process one file of OCB-R24 of 64 Mb size.)

Fig.-5
11. Options: This helps POI In-charge to select Process options as per their needs to process single
file or multiple files (See fig.6).
The user can clean up the Summary Files by choosing Cleanup option. Cleanup will delete all
the summary information, which was processed earlier and prepares the System to start
afresh.
