Welcome to the Real World.... all your calls are belong to THE MAN
"SAFARI C(Cubed) is the only totally integrated carrier class VoIP
switch that incorporates -- at no additional cost -- all of the
components that make up the distributed voice switching
infrastructure, eliminating the need for operators to purchase,
maintain, upgrade and regression test separate Call Management
Servers, Media Gateways, *Call Detail Records (Record Keeping)
Servers*, Announcement Servers, Signaling Gateways, Ethernet Switches
and *Legal Intercept (CALEA) servers*."
Consider the advances in computers since that time (1980) and
extrapolate the surveillance capabilities that the book claims to today.
