Octasic’s SoftEcho Eliminates Background Noise in Asterisk with ANR

MONTREAL, Quebec, May 15, 2007 — Octasic, the voice quality experts, today announced the availability of Adaptive Noise Reduction (ANR), an add-on feature for Asterisk-based IP PBX systems. Adding the ANR feature to SoftEcho, the industry leading Echo Cancellation software, makes this the clearest voice quality in the Asterisk market.

“Through the addition of ANR, Octasic continues to improve it’s SoftEcho for Asterisk, offering an even more crystal clear, noise-free experience,” said Frederic Bourget, Director of Product Management for Octasic. “Although we are getting very good feedback from current customers, we will continue to provide added value free of charge.”
