Echo and Soft VoIP PBX Systems
Echo on a telephone call is an annoying phenomenon that has been mostly under control in the classic telephony system, but it is rearing its head again as VoIP proliferates. Its effective control is vitally important for the eventual success of VoIP technologies in general, because of the effect of echo on perceived quality. For open-source VoIP PBX/IVR technologies to become truly mainstream, toll-quality audio must be a given, and this requires reliable, high-performance echo cancellation.
