MONTREAL -- OctWare, the echo experts, today announced the availability of SoftEcho a new per channel upgrade option for AsteriskR-based IP PBX systems. SoftEcho is a simple to integrate Line Echo Cancellation (LEC) application for Asterisk systems. A download is all that is needed to enhance Asterisk with industry leading sound quality. OctWare will provide its best-of-breed per channel solution at the same cost as inferior add-ons pushed by Asterisk PBX vendors.

"Echo problems in Asterisk are well-known and many IP PBX makers up-sell echo cancellation solutions," said Fabio Gambacorta, vice president of sales and marketing at OctWare. "Unfortunately, the echo cancellers offered by these manufacturers are based on the lowest cost, resulting in inferior quality. Integrators, consultants and resellers can now offer the industry leading echo cancellation solution and eliminate support calls from customers complaining about unsatisfactory voice quality."

OctWare has created its own transparent algorithm that works better than off-the-shelf echo cancellation solutions. This algorithm has been thoroughly tested and improved through years of testing in large-scale carrier deployments worldwide through Octasic, OctWare's parent company. That carrier grade quality, already obtainable with interface cards by Digium, Sangoma, and other vendors, that include Octasic's OCT6100 echo cancellation device, is now available in software form for small to midsized businesses using an Asterisk PBX.

SoftEcho's algorithm is auto-tuning meaning that no adjustments are necessary. SoftEcho learns its environment and quickly adapts to it. Its long, well-covered echo path tail ensures carrier proven quality on any calls in trunk side use. SoftEcho handles double-talk and background noise better than the generic echo cancellation solutions currently integrated into popular Asterisk PBX systems.
