I have an asterisk installation that has its calls recorded by another device via port mirroring on the ethernet switch. This works fine.
A new requirement has turned up: there are now some SIP radio adapters in the mix and it is desired to record radio activity. Recordings happen fine if a phone is used to dial up the SIP adapters (which auto answer the call), however I would like to originate calls from asterisk to the radio adapters without any other phones being involved. I need a sort of dummy endpoint within asterisk for the radio adapters to send their media to so it gets recorded.
Is this a job for the local channel? Are there any things to watch out for? I shall probably be using AMI to originate the calls.
