A highly error resilient mode of the newly standardized 3GPP EVS speech codec is described. Compared to the AMR-WB codec and other conversational codecs, the EVS channel aware mode offers significantly improved error resilience in voice communication over packet-switched networks such as Voiceover- IP (VoIP) and Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE). The error resilience is achieved using a form of in-band forward error correction. Source-controlled coding techniques are used to identify candidate speech frames for bitrate reduction, leaving spare bits for transmission of partial copies of prior frames such that a constant bit rate is maintained. The self-contained partial copies are used to improve the error robustness in case the original primary frame is lost or discarded due to late arrival. Subjective evaluation results from ITU-T P.800 Mean Opinion Score (MOS) tests are provided, showing improved quality under channel impairments as well as negligible impact to clean channel performance.
