Configuring Cisco Expressway for recording through Mobile and Remote Access (MRA)


The Expressway supports Built-in-Bridge (BiB) recording over Mobile and Remote Access (MRA). This recording method can be used to record the audio portion of calls that are made or received by users working off-premises.


To utilize recording Cisco endpoints that support BiB through MRA, Expressway X8.11.1 or newer is required. Additionally, to record Jabber BiB for iOS and Android over Expressway MRA with JTAPI CTI, CUCM 12.5.1 or newer is required. For more information on the prerequisites and the list of compatible devices, see
