10.703GPPGSM Adaptive Multi-Rate Speech Codec (AMR)Project schedule and open issues for AMRTS

The in-house listening tests executed as part of the qualification phase were funded by the codec proponents.

The five candidates participating to the selection phase provided the required funding to perform the planned subjective listening tests and the verification of the complexity figures.

SMG11 has indicated that the characterization phase would require an additional funding estimated to 300 kECU. This funding was provisionally agreed by the GSM MoU plenary in October 1998 and the endorsement confirmed by the Association Executive Committee in December 1998.
