Go to the VoIP Category

Call and text charges are invoiced in arrears. The invoice has a line item for each billable number showing total charges. The PDF attachment includes a printable itemised bill for each billable number. The invoice also has an XML attachment which includes the full CDR for all calls so that you can process these automatically. If you do not have XML billing, ask accounts to enable it for you.

Some calls are just incoming to a phone or outgoing from a phone, but it is possible for a call to come in, and ring multiple other numbers, some of which are A&A numbers that ring multiple numbers, etc. In this case a single call can result in multiple CDRs for separate billable numbers. The CDRs log failed calls if they have got as far as actually trying to call a number (i.e. delayed ring group numbers that have not reached the delay time are not logged).

Billable number The CDRs are listed for each billable number. This is either the number of the SIP account or a SIM ICCID. The SIM is used where calls/texts are direct to/from the SIM (SIP2SIM) and no number is assigned.
