I am using an multiservice network based on Cisco 3640, 7206 and Ericsson MD110 (QSIG) in Germany the Codec is G.729BRA. The problem I am experiencing is that music on hold calls are temporary interupted. I know the G.729 Codec is optimized for speechcalls and lowleveled musicparts where blind out by the codec.
Could anyone tell me more about the G.729 Codec? Any Suggestions?
Thank you very much9th July 2002 at 17:37 #21845voipGuest
This sounds like a useful feature, nothing more annoying than hold music.
Whilst using a voice codec will not give you hi-fi quality music I don’t see why G729 would cause gaps in the music though. Is it possible that you have packet loss…. Maybe the bansdwidth used is too high when transporting music, continous sound= no silence compression=more bandwidth10th July 2002 at 18:47 #21846ksabcGuest
Definitely G.729/G.729A/G.729B codec won’t cause gaps when playing music, you may check :
Disable Silence Compression – because the CODEC chip maybe cut some time if enabled the silence compression and some part of the music is in low volume ( You can’t feel it but the codec hardware can );
Or Large the music volume – the reason is same to above
Adjust Frames/RTP Package :
What is the Frame number in each G.729 RTP package? I suggest to change to 1 and try again; it use more bandwidth but will make the playing more smoothly;

Do you know why there would be a buzzing noise when a call is taken off hold (MOH), a short 1 second buzz is heard by the caller. Using Cisco AVVID ( Call Manager 3.2.2), with MOH server on a remote site connected by enough bandwidth. There is no chopping, or lack of quality on our VOIP network. Only an inital buzz at the beggining of the transfered call. Equipment is totall Cisco. Using 729 and h323. Its not a hardware problem i dont think, as calls coming from the Call Manager on the same side of the MOH are fine and not prone to the BUZZ.. Static?

Change MOH tune to anything other than “I’m a busy, busy bumblebee” by Arthus Askey.13th May 2003 at 20:35 #21849MuarrijGuest
