   Well, I think this is a little difficult to deploy with a single
system. Maybe you will need to deploy some distributed solutions
(Asterisk or whatever) to have quality assurance, and coordinated to a
central management.
   You will also need to verify how many concurrent calls between
extensions on each location and intra-locations to determine how many
trunk records to install and space to record all of these information
   Almost sure all these calls will need to pass through this system
to being recorded.

   Do you alredy have some details of what kind of record and services
of management your customer is asking for ?
