Generating CDR with correspondents from an input file

The seventh profile extends the previous one by allowing to select random correspondents from an input file in a similar way customers are extracted from an input file.

The input correspondents file is a CSV file. In the configuration of the usage pattern you can chose which column will produce the ISDN of the selected correspondent and the type of correspondent. If necessary you can also produce the correspondent type from another means (a constant for example if all correspondent from the same file are of the same type).

The generator takes care of realism by preventing to select the same ISDN for the customer and the correspondent. Relying on this, you can use the same input file for the customers and for the correspondent of a usage pattern. This is what we are doing when generating CDR for community of customers where calls are made inside the community (the same input file).
