Enhanced Voice Services (EVS) speech coding standard was developed by 3GPP in the year 2014. The codec operates on 20ms frames of 16-bit PCM speech/audio signals sampled at 8 KHz, 16 KHz, 32 KHz, or 48 KHz and generates a compressed bit-stream having bit-rates in the range of 5.9 kbps to 128 kbps respectively. EVS has been developed primarily for VoLTE and is inter-operable with the 3GPP AMR-WB codec. At 5.9 kbps, it operates in variable bit rate and it also has a robust channel aware mode at 13.2 kbps for lossy networks. All other bit-rates operate in constant bit-rate mode. Encoder uses the ACELP core for speech input, DTX mode for inactive input, and MDCT mode for audio input. The decoder supports packet loss concealment and has an inherent jitter buffer management for handling packet loss and delay jitter.
