Theoretical model: Adaptive scalar compandor (Section II-B) for various N, [mu] = 255 and L = 32 for [Q.sub.LU] in a wide dynamic range.
When the communications system contains active elements, such as amplifiers and voice compandors, background noise measurements require the injection of a holding or test tone at the transmitter end of the test facility.
The test tone activates all of the compandors and amplifiers on the line, simulating actual operating conditions.
