Another option is the IP traffic export option.

We used Cisco for lawful intercept.. Their mibs are wanky and at the time
only the 7206 was support for the LI functionality. Food for thought.

Hello All,

My company is looking at updating our CALEA set up.  Our network has
changed appreciably since our initial rollout and I am looking at utilizing
Cisco's Lawful Intercept.  I'm wondering what people are using as "Mediator
Devices", aka what the Cisco routers are sending the Lawful Intercept
stream to.

Cisco's Lawful Intercept seems like a solid option since all it requires
for us is an IOS upgrade on our core routers and something to act as a
Mediator, but I'm also interested in solutions others are using.
