Dear Members:

Can I write a PBX software for a machine? Which software languages can I use to do so? Does it require assembly language or any higher level language?

I want to get this information for my school project. I'm required to submit the proposal very soon.

PBX software

by Toivo Talikka In reply to PBX

Here is an article about PBX:

Your question is not specific about where that software is supposed to run. Software applications running in a PBX itself are presumably written in low level languages like Assembler or C.

If you are required to think of a way to run a program in a PC which connects to a PBX to provide reports for Call Accounting, you need to think of a modular approach. First of all, your application needs to capture the call information forwarded by the PBX on either a serial (RS-232) or network interface (TCP/IP). Secondly, the information needs to be reformatted so that it can be written to a file or database of some sort. Thirdly, a user interface is required which picks one of the available reports from a menu. And finally, a reporting language selects the relevant records or rows from the stored call information, sorts them and presents the report on the screen, prints it or writes the report into a file.
