Monitoring Server enables you to collect numerical data to assess the media quality on your network and endpoints, and usage information related to Voice over IP (VoIP) calls, instant messages, audio/video conversations, meetings, file transfers, and desktop sharing.

Call detail recording retains general usage data, not user-specific information. Call detail records are useful for identifying trends in Office Communications Server usage within an organization. For example, organizations that want to track usage data for return on investment (ROI) reports might enable call detail recording.
