Mobile Recording from Vodafone is a next generation mobile voice recording (MVR) solution that captures calls and text messages made and received on any mobile device regardless of operating system.  For more information on the Vodafone solution, please refer to the Vodafone website at https://www.vodafone.com/business/solutions/unified-communications/call-recording/network-mobile-recording

Verba directly imports Vodafone calls via a secure and resilient connection. The system monitors when the last import occurred inside business hours, alerting and automatically failing over to an alternate connection if no calls are received.  All available calls are imported as soon as they are available.

For a general description of Verba Import sources, please refer to Import sources.

Recording is supported for the following modalities

  • Voice
