Applications
Businesses incur significant recurring monthly costs for rigid bandwidth leased lines used purely for the inter-connection of PBXs and telecom switches. The IP•Tube-DLT1-Ecan provides the ability to interconnect existing phone systems over flexible bandwidth lines that are used to carry data, voice, and video. Voice only leased line toll charges assessed by long distance and local carriers are eliminated by transporting voice and fax traffic across the enterprise intranet, LAN, MAN or WAN.

Far End Echo Cancelling
IP•Tube DLE1-Ecan utilizes a Digital Signal Processor that detects and cancels echo at the far end so that the packet network delay has no impact on echo. The echo canceller samples the voice signal, estimates and removes the echo, leaving the original speech. The linear digital signal processor (DSP) models the echo and performs the main echo cancellation task. A non-linear DSP processor is then optimally employed to subtract out any residual echo or reflected noise components. Echo is one of the most important factors that affects voice quality. The presence of echo depends on both echo level and echo delay. The primary source of echo is the impedance mismatch at the hybrid that links a 2-wire analog loop to a 4-wire digital trunk. The hybrid is not completely efficient in carrying the electrical energy and a certain amount of the electrical energy, or voice signal, is reflected back and may be perceived as echo. Occasionally, acoustic feedback of certain phones also causes noticeable echoes. These sources of echo are able to be cancelled by the human brain as long as the time between our speech and the echoed speech is not greater than 32 milliseconds.
Engage's T1 Over IP products have a minimum delay configuration, 1 millisecond packetization and 4 packet buffering, which introduces a delay of 5 milliseconds. The amount of delay introduced by the packet network depends upon its switching times, packet processing, packet jitter, transmission, loading and quality of service configuration.

For example a network connection that utilize Gigabit Ethernet switches, which introduce delays in the microseconds, does not require echo cancellation. Wide Area Networks that traverse an intranet or internet backbone have varying degrees of delay which can easily exceed 28 milliseconds. Total round trip delays in excess of 32 millisecond makes echo perceptible.

The IPTube’s Echo Cancellation provides the elasticity to support clear connections across networks with significant delay and packet jitter.
T1 Private Line Services over IP
Multi-Site Enterprises, Education Districts, Universities, National, State and Local Government, and Municipalities, incur significant recurring monthly costs for rigid-bandwidth leased lines used only for the interconnection of Phone Systems.

The IP•Tube DLT1-Ecan provides organizations with the ability to interconnect their existing phone systems over flexible bandwidth lines that are used to carry data, voice, and video. The Voice Only Leased Line Toll charges assessed by long distance and local carriers are eliminated or dramatically reduced by transporting voice traffic across LANs and WANs.

LANs
The most compelling option for the interconnection of T1 based systems is when it can be accomplished over a Local Area Network. The deployment of Fiber based LANS such as FDDI and Gigabit Ethernet, provides organizations with high performance and high quality bandwidth that is especially well suited for the interconnection of PBXs and Telecom Switches.
WANs
Wide Area Networks that have sufficient bandwidth and Quality of Service provisioning result very significant cost savings especially for Multinational Corporations. The IP•Tube DLT1-Ecan-C with loss less data compression, detects idle and redundant data within each voice circuit resulting in a 56 to 1 bandwidth savings. WAN bandwidth is not consumed by silence or redundant samples.
Broadband Service Providers
Companies, that are able to provide IP Ethernet access networks generate new revenue by offering traditional T1 leased line and private line services, such as:
Cable Operators
Cable operators connect traditional T1 leased line and private line services over their hybrid fiber coax (HFC) cable networks. HFC Cable network latency typically requires echo cancellation.

Metropolitan Area Networks
Metropolitan carriers with IP or Ethernet access networks deliver traditional leased line and private line services.

Utilities
Utilities generate new revenue by offering traditional T1 leased line and private line services over their fiber or power line networks.
Incumbent Carriers
Telcos reduce costs by delivering profitable leased and private line services over their flexible Ethernet infrastructures.
CLEC PBX Back Haul
The IP•Tube DLT1-Ecan provides CLECs with a way to back haul T1 DS0s from a customer’s phone systems over their Internet connection. The back hauled DS0s are connected to the CLECs phone switch for connection to the Public Switched Telephone Networks. Local Exchange Carriers are able to offer an economical alternative to the local Phone Company.
Wireless Ethernet
Connecting phone systems across a wireless Ethernet connection has a return on investment that is measured in weeks. Eliminating the wired connection for the T1 based communication equipment is made possible with the IPTube’s T1 Over Ethernet capability.

Echo Cancellation enables Wireless connections to support T1 Over IP real time connections in a point to multipoint configuration.
