The system supports multiple integration options with the Genesys platform:

  • Genesys active recording
  • Genesys CTI integration for Cisco network-based recording

This guide focuses on the Genesys active recording integration only. For more information on Genesys CTI integration with Cisco recording, see Genesys integration for Cisco network based recording.

The Active Recording Ecosystem uses Media Stream Replication (MSR) for a fully Active recording solution with Dual Channel Recording. SIP sessions to the recorder provide basic call information and voice (Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP)) data. MSR is where Media Server replicates the RTPs and makes them available to the recording server. Additional events and information are provided by the T-Server part of the SIP Server. For a full overview and architecture of the Genesys Active Recording Ecosystem please refer to the following document: Active Recording Ecosystem Overview
