AMR-WB or G.722.2


Adaptive Multi Rate – Wideband (AMR-WB) speech coding standard was developed by 3GPP in the year 2002. It has also been adopted by the ITU-T as the G.722.2 standard. The codec operates on speech signals sampled at 16 KHz and generates compressed bit-streams with bit-rates ranging from 6.6kbps to 23.85kbps. The bit-rate can be changed at 20 ms frame boundary. The coding scheme used for the various bit-rate modes is based on the Algebraic Code Excited Linear Prediction algorithm. It also has an integrated voice activity detector and packet loss concealment algorithm. The principal applications for this codec include wideband telephony applications over 3G wireless and VoIP such as audio teleconferencing, and streaming.
