Call center system related concepts

By | Tutorials | No Comments

Introduction: AsterCC is an advanced call center system, while providing a powerful CRM functionality, including the main funtction of the inbound / outbound, call recording, IVR, queue, etc. This article will describle related concepts.

System administrator account: Used to manage the entire system, is the highest privileged account.
Team administrator account: Used to manage a team, including accounts, agents etc.
Users: Is the basic unit and also the billing unit, a user can contain more agents and devices.
Devices: Devices can be divided into internal devices and external devices, device numbers can be calling with each other through the inside.
Internal devices: The device in the asterisk system, such as a SIP, an IAX, or a DAHDI device. When a device extension dials an outside number, the cost will be counted in the user.
External devices: External devices refers to an ordinary telephone, the external device can only accept calls from the system.
Internal numbers: For example, 5000 is the extension number of an external device (number 041139735857), then when the other extension dials 5000, the system will try to call 041139735857. The extension number is the same as the extension number.

Tips:When the system dials an extension that attempts an outside number, the cost of the call is recorded on the account corresponding to the external devices.

Agent: For call center operations, including inbound and outbound, agents are assigned to different agentgroups and assigned to different tasks. Need to connect a device for this agent or enter an external number.
Set the agent’s device we can select, as follows:
fixed: The agent select to a fixed number (which can be inside or outside), the agent can’t modified.
self-adapting:The system will check whether the IP address of the agent login is registered with the IP phone, and if so, it will switch to the number corresponding to the IP phone.
dynamic:The agent can switch at any time his corresponding number (the system will check whether there are other agents to use the number)

2、The agent login, logout, checkin, and checkout the instructions.

The solutions of call center extension can’t be registered

By | Tutorials | No Comments

Tips: After building the devices, we need to configure the SIP phone, until the phone is registered to the device after the success, can be outbound and inbound and other functions. But often encountered in the registration process of failure, divided into user name or password error problem, firewall problems, port problems.

1、Click【PBX】–>【Devices】,View device records If the registration is successful, the connection status of the extension is green. If the gray “UNREGISTERED” or “UNKNOWN” means that the registration failed.

2、Analysis on the Failure Reason and Solution of Registration

1)Registration failed for one reason: the user name, password error.

Solution: 1. Check the correct user name corresponds to the full registration account, 2. Authentication password is correct correspond to the device registration password.

2)Reasons for registration failure: Firewall is not set through the relevant port.

Solution: 1. Close or set the relevant port to allow through the firewall, such as udp protocol port 5060, tcp protocol 5060 port.
View the firewall policy:iptables -nL
Increase the firewall policy:iptables -I INPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 5060 -j ACCEPT
If the server uses the SIP default udp port: 5060, you can also edit /etc/sysconfig/iptables, increase the port strategy to restart iptables effective, as follows:

3)Reasons for registration failure: the port used by the server (for example, the port is occupied, the port is not allowed to use or the port conflict)
Solution:Modify another port registeration. We manually changed the port to 5888 SIP registered to see the port occupation of the list: lsof -i

If we change the SIP registration port to 80, it will conflict with the HTTP service port, soft phone registration will not register successfully. Enter the asterisk console will continue to refresh the error.
