What Are Call Logs?


Call logging is the process of collecting, analyzing, and recording data on telephone calls. The data can include the call origin, call destination, the length of the call, and other transmission details. Other characteristics might include the call start and end times and the specific network used. Call logs are typically saved by a telecommunications service or equipment provider as a "call detail record." This process is automated and call logs can be stored for later review.


Why Are Call Logs Important?


These data points do not record the content of the call itself, but still can provide valuable information. Call logs provide a macro view of how a telecommunications network is being used in real time. That data can be used to reduce costs by prioritizing service to the busiest areas of the network. Call logs can ensure the most effective deployment of maintenance resources to keep a network operating at peak efficiency.


Some Use Cases For Call Logs


Call log data can serve a variety of users. Telecommunications companies use call log data to evaluate the performance of their network and ability to serve customers. The origin and destination of calls can help determine how to provide coverage during periods of peak use. Retail call centers use call logs to evaluate the performance of customer service representatives. Longer call durations typically mean more time spent to resolve issues, and vice versa. Emergency service agencies use call logs to monitor disaster zones and provide targeted assistance. Call logs allow companies to understand their network usage and provide the best possible coverage.
