Admin Portal – Call Recordings

The Call Recording feature provides a hosted mechanism to record the calls placed and received on the Carrier platform for replay and archival. This feature is helpful for quality assurance, security, training, and more.

The Call Recording service is a hybrid feature, where the Carrier platform enables the Call Recording user feature settings, while storage and management of recorded calls are delivered via a portal of the third-party partner, Dubber. Recording of calls are securely sent to the Dubber platform for playback and general management.
