  • Patent number: 11277521
    Abstract: A system and computer-implemented method for providing telephony communication services for VoIP or analog telephony devices using an on-premises gateway and remotely located VoIP system are described. Some implementations of the methods may include generating a configuration file mapping a plurality of tag extensions to a plurality of analog telephone ports of a high-density analog telephony adapter (HDATA), which may be communicatively coupled to the VoIP system. The VoIP system may transmit the configuration file to the HDATA, receive a telephony service request, and determine a tag extension based on the telephony service request. The VoIP system may transmit an identification of the tag extension to the HDATA and route a telephony service to the HDATA via the communication channel using the tag extension.

  • Patent number: 11146607
    Abstract: A system and method are described for smart noise cancellation. In some implementations, the system may receive audio data describing an audio signal, which the system may use to determine a set of frames of the audio signal. Spectral analysis, which may include a signal-to-noise ratio estimate, may be performed on the one or more frames of the audio. In some instances, the system may identify a noise frame from among the one or more frames based on the spectral analysis, and may reduce noise in the one or more frames based on the noise frame and the spectral analysis on the one or more frames of the audio signal.

  • Patent number: 11132987
    Abstract: Audio data describing an audio signal may be received and used to determine a set of frames of the audio signal. One or more potential music events may be determined in the audio signal using a spectral analysis of the set of frames. The audio signal may be analyzed for one or more potential noise or tone events. One or more music states of the audio signal may be determined based on the one or more potential music events and a presence or absence of the one or more noise or tone events. Audio enhancement of the audio signal may be modified based on the one or more determined states of the audio signal.
