Under newer code with EchoBeach, you have the option of using "echo suppressor". This turns the conversation into half-duplex for (by default) the first 7 seconds of the call while the ECANs are converging, thus eliminating the startup time echo.
So far as I know, and my routers running in G.168 mode seem to confirm, suppressor is available in both G.165 and G.168 modes. The gimmick is that suppressor is supposed to be unnecessary in G.168 mode, because G.168 is supposed to converge very fast - and in my experience, it does seem to converge in under one second.
If you're getting 3 or 4 seconds of echo, I would think you are using the G.165 canceller. That URL I posted alleges that G.168 is unavailable on the NM-HDA when on the 2600 platform, which I don't understand, but so be it. I poked at a 2600 + NM-HDA running 12.3(2)T1 this evening to see what the real deal is. I can configure ecan-extended, but I don't get a 64ms coverage option or an ERL adjustment option, so I suspect we're still in G.165 mode regardless.
If you're still in G.165 mode, that would explain your 3 or 4 seconds of convergence time. So, in my opinion, suppressor is still the tool for the job. Is your router not accepting the command?
I'm not able to access my old voice mail messages all of a sudden. The recording says something like 'the message is currently not available'. This has never happened before in all the years I have been using this system. I have t...
If you have 2 ISR routers, one acting as Failover, do we need to have both the same number of SRST licenses on the 2 routers?
No. You will only need the SRST licenses on the primary router. Because this feature...
