  • Custom user definable echo-tail displacement between 0ms. to 896ms. This allows the user to cancel echo in both directions (near-end and far end), even in most difficult conditions i.e. excessive transmission delays that are common on VoIP networks and satellite links
  • Voice Quality Enhancement:
    • Removes background noise
    • Automatic level control (maintains VF levels)
  • Signaling protocols supported:
    • 30B+D PRI ISDN (Euro ISDN) signaling,
    • 31B (31 voice channels) with out-of-band signaling,
    • R2 CAS Signaling,
    • SS7 signaling (on any user selected time-slot).
    • C5, CCS, Q50 (AB/CD)
    • All signaling options are User Selectable / User Programmable.
    • Allows digital data transmission on user-selected time-slots.
  • E1 link by-pass on power failure. This feature helps to maintain the link integrity even in the event of power failure
  • The echo canceller supports fax / modem G.164 and G.165 (2100 Hz) tone disable
