In recent months, both Digium and Sangoma have released T1/E1 Interface cards for use with Asterisk Open Source PBX that provide hardware Echo Cancellation.
Echo can negatively impact QOS (Quality of Service) on a VOIP call and lead to an unsatisfactory user experience. There are two sources of echo on voice communication networks.

The greater the extent of impedance mismatch, the more leakage of transmit audio on the receive side of the line when it terminates …

It had been previously estimated by the VON Coalition, a VOIP industry consortium, that about two-thirds of VOIP users would have access to E-911 services by the deadline.…
