Image Number 15 for United States Patent #6738358.
A network echo canceller for integrated telecommunications processing. The network echo canceller processes echoes in multiple communication channels over a packet network. The network echo canceller adapts a least means squared finite impulse response filter to each communication channel in order to estimate an echo therein. The echo estimation is subtracted from signals that are being sent over each communication channel. The echo canceller includes a residual error suppressor to suppress non-linear sources of echo when desired. The echo canceller includes a double talk detector to inhibit filter adaptation during double talk. The network echo canceller is programmable into a digital signal processor and can be flexibly controlled through messaging.
