by ITU-T is of significant importance since for the first time the same codec is adopted for wireless as well as wireline services. AMR-WB uses an extended audio bandwidth from 50 Hz to 7 kHz and gives superior speech quality and voice naturalness compared to existing second-and third-generation mobile communication systems. The wideband speech service(More)
The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) have carried out development and standardisation of a wideband speech codec for GSM and the third generation mobile communication WCDMA system since 1999. The Adaptive Multi-Rate Wideband (AMR-WB) codec algorithm was selected in December 2000, and the(More)
This paper describes a multi-rate codec family developed as a potential candidate for the GSM Adaptive Multi Rate (AMR) codec standard. The codec family consists of the GSM Enhanced Full Rate (EFR) codec [I] and lower bit-rate extensions thereof: The codec family consists of several codecs, i.e., modes that have different bit-rate partitionings between(More)
We present in this paper new methods for achieving high-quality wideband speech at low rates using the ACELP algorithm. Several innovations are introduced to optimize the quality and minimize the complexity of the coder. A multi-rate wideband speech encoding algorithm based on these techniques was recently selected by 3GPP as the standard for AMR-WB, and is(More)
