Abstract: A robust speech communications system over a digital mobile radio channel is considered. We examine a system using 12 Kbit/s embedded subband coding of speech and rate compatible punctured convolutional (RCPC) codes with generalised Viterbi decoding for combined error detection and correction. System performance is improved by exploiting the frame-to-frame redundancy in the subband energy profile used for adaptive bit allocation in the subband coder. Unreliable subband side information about the energy profile is identified through a two-stage process comprising the channel error detector and a source-based subband energy profile error detector. The subband side information deemed unreliable is replaced with the estimates based on frame-to-frame redundancy. This improved error detection capability in the subband side information allows a judicious reassignment of channel error protection bits to the subband main information, leading to an overall improvement in system performance. Using a realistic simulation model of a digital mobile radio communication system, an improvement of up to 4.4 dB in recovered speech segmental SNR is obtained at a channel SNR of 6 dB, compared with a system with only channel error protection.
