                           RTP Payload Format
   for the Enhanced Variable Rate Narrowband-Wideband Codec (EVRC-NW)

Abstract

   This document specifies Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) payload
   formats to be used for the Enhanced Variable Rate Narrowband-Wideband
   Codec (EVRC-NW).  Three media type registrations are included for
   EVRC-NW RTP payload formats.  In addition, a file format is specified
   for transport of EVRC-NW speech data in storage mode applications
   such as email.

1.  Introduction

   This document specifies the payload formats for packetization of
   EVRC-NW encoded speech signals into the Real-time Transport Protocol
   (RTP).  It defines support for the header-free, interleaved/bundled,
   and compact bundle packet formats for the EVRC-NW codec as well as
   discontinuous transmission (DTX) support for EVRC-NW encoded speech
   transported via RTP.  The EVRC-NW codec offers better speech quality
   than the EVRC and EVRC-B codecs and better capacity than the Enhanced
   Variable Rate Wideband Codec (EVRC-WB).  EVRC-NW belongs to the EVRC
   family of codecs.
