Abstract

Often it is necessary to measure the response of audio channels in a communication system. Response is usually measured by calculating how much audio truncation and audio buffering is being done by the communication equipment. Truncation is the amount of audio (usually given in l/1000 of a second incre- ment) lost in a given transmission. Buffering is the amount of audio stored and later forwarded through the channel. These measurements are not only use- ful in describing system performance, often they are required by customers and specified in contractual documents.
