Hi Ryan,To suggest the group has been quiet for a while is quiet
an understatement. Apparently it's been so dead for so long, the mailing
list has been taken over by a Ruby group. Go figure.
Where are you seeing these options? If you are hearing the echo in your
GXP-2000, chances are you can't fix the problem. If the OTHER party hears
the echo, then you probably can. Think of it this way.. What is the echo?
It's your voice from your GXP-2000 traveling all the way to your
destination.. The someone wrong over there causes your voice to come back.
The propagation delay is perceived and thus, you hear echo. Without
propagation delay, it simply sounds like line voltage.
Now that's true of traditional telephony. With VoIP in the mix, there's a
bazillion things that can go wrong that can effect echo on either end. But
typically none of those would require changing impedance settings on your
What's your handoff to the PSTN? Can you describe your setup? For what it's
worth, you typically don't need to mess with that kind of setting *ever*
unless you are:
1. Not in the US
2. Behind a really really really old switch
3. On a ridiculously long loop in the middle of nowhere.
Also, I don't mean to be a stick in the mud, but Grandstream has
traditionally built some of the cheapest VoIP components out there.. And I
mean cheap.. not inexpensive. You may want to try a higher quality device to
see if you are happier. That being said, I *know* the GXP-2000 is better
than many of their other devices and I do NOT have any experience with it.
That's my $0.02. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. :)
BTW, Is there any community interest in reviving this group? Personally, I'm
not involved in Asterisk as much as I used to be because I'm trying to focus
on more core solutions and using OpenSER/OpenSIPs/Kamailio/Whatever you want
to call it these days. I'm curious what everyone else is doing with VoIP in
general out there and how we may all be able to benefit from our collective
I for one, am looking for some people who really know what they are doing
with Asterisk, and SIP in general, to provide some redundant support to my
