I fired up the echo canceller in real time today, and tried a few calls on my home phone line. I used an Asterisk 1.2 system running a Digium TDM400 card, and integrated the new echo canceller into Zaptel. I had previously tried this same phone line with one of the Zaptel 1.2 built-in echo cancellers with poor results – it didn’t really converge. To be fair, I haven’t tried the latest Zaptel 1.4 echo cancellers, I will try that soon.
The new echo can worked OK, definitely an improvement. I could hear a little echo on about 3 occasions in about 10 minutes of talking, but it quickly reconverged each time.
There were a few little problems – the crude Non-Linear Processor (NLP) used simply mutes the near end and I can hear the background noise being switched on and off when I talk. I really need a better approach like comfort noise or variable gain here (thanks Jean-Marc Valin for your suggestions here). Plus from the simulation I am aware of a few other weaknesses, e.g. some G168 test fails that need looking into.
Obviously, the echo canceller also needs much wider testing, so this is just a very preliminary result.
Anyway, I am pretty happy with this. One big reason for this work was so I could use my Embedded Asterisk system on this FXO line, and I am now pretty close – just need to port to the Blackfin.
Please send me an email and tell me how well it works for you. If it doesn’t work please use the sampling system to send me a few samples from your phone line. I can use that information to improve the echo canceller.
Overall this is an encouraging start. Thanks to all those who have helped me over the past month.
