Internet-Draft                    Speex                        June 2007


1.  Introduction

   Speex is based on the CELP [CELP] encoding technique with support for
   either narrowband (nominal 8kHz), wideband (nominal 16kHz) or ultra-
   wideband (nominal 32kHz).  The main characteristics can be summarized
   as follows:

   o  Free software/open-source

   o  Integration of wideband and narrowband in the same bit-stream

   o  Wide range of bit-rates available

   o  Dynamic bit-rate switching and variable bit-rate (VBR)

   o  Voice Activity Detection (VAD, integrated with VBR)

   o  Variable complexity

   The Speex codec supports a wide range of bit-rates from 2.15 kbit/s
   to 44 kbit/s.  In some cases however, it may not be possible for an
   implementation to include support for all rates (e.g. because of
   bandwidth, RAM or CPU constraints).  In those cases, to be compliant
   with this specification, implementations MUST support at least
   narrowband (8 kHz) encoding and decoding at 8 kbit/s bit-rate
   (narrowband mode 3).  Support for narrowband at 15 kbit/s (narrowband
   mode 5) is RECOMMENDED and support for wideband at 27.8 kbit/s
   (wideband mode 8) is also RECOMMENDED.  The sampling rate MUST be 8,
   16 or 32 kHz.

3.  RTP usage for Speex

3.1.  RTP Speex Header Fields

   The RTP header is defined in the RTP specification [RFC3550].  This
   section defines how fields in the RTP header are used.

      Payload Type (PT): The assignment of an RTP payload type for this
      packet format is outside the scope of this document; it is
      specified by the RTP profile under which this payload format is
      used, or signaled dynamically out-of-band (e.g., using SDP).

      Marker (M) bit: The M bit is set to one to indicate that the RTP
      packet payload contains at least one complete frame

      Extension (X) bit: Defined by the RTP profile used.

      Timestamp: A 32-bit word that corresponds to the sampling instant
      for the first frame in the RTP packet.

3.2.  RTP payload format for Speex

   The RTP payload for Speex has the format shown in Figure 1.  No
   additional header fields specific to this payload format are
   required.  For RTP based transportation of Speex encoded audio the
   standard RTP header [RFC3550] is followed by one or more payload data
   blocks.  An optional padding terminator may also be used.

3.3.  Speex payload

   For the purposes of packetizing the bit stream in RTP, it is only
   necessary to consider the sequence of bits as output by the Speex
   encoder [speex_manual], and present the same sequence to the decoder.
   The payload format described here maintains this sequence.

   A typical Speex frame, encoded at the maximum bitrate, is approx. 110



Herlein, et al.         Expires December 12, 2007               [Page 6]

   octets and the total number of Speex frames SHOULD be kept less than
   the path MTU to prevent fragmentation.  Speex frames MUST NOT be
   fragmented across multiple RTP packets,

   An RTP packet MAY contain Speex frames of the same bit rate or of
   varying bit rates, since the bit-rate for a frame is conveyed in band
   with the signal.

   The encoding and decoding algorithm can change the bit rate at any 20
   msec frame boundary, with the bit rate change notification provided
   in-band with the bit stream.  Each frame contains both sampling rate
   (narrowband, wideband or ultra-wideband) and "mode" (bit-rate)
   information in the bit stream.  No out-of-band notification is
   required for the decoder to process changes in the bit rate sent by
   the encoder.

   Sampling rate values of 8000, 16000 or 32000 Hz MUST be used.  Any
   other sampling rates MUST NOT be used.

   The RTP payload MUST be padded to provide an integer number of octets
   as the payload length.  These padding bits are LSB aligned in network
   octet order and consist of a 0 followed by all ones (until the end of
   the octet).  This padding is only required for the last frame in the
   packet, and only to ensure the packet contents ends on an octet
   boundary.

3.4.  Example Speex packet

   In the example below we have a single Speex frame with 5 bits of
   padding to ensure the packet size falls on an octet boundary.

3.5.  Multiple Speex frames in a RTP packet

   Below is an example of two Speex frames contained within one RTP
   packet.  The Speex frame length in this example fall on an octet
   boundary so there is no padding.

   The Speex decoder [speex_manual] can detect the bitrate from the

5.  SDP usage of Speex

   When conveying information by SDP [RFC4566], the encoding name MUST
   be set to "speex".  An example of the media representation in SDP for
   offering a single channel of Speex at 8000 samples per second might
   be:

             m=audio 8088 RTP/AVP 97
             a=rtpmap:97 speex/8000

   Note that the RTP payload type code of 97 is defined in this media
   definition to be 'mapped' to the speex codec at an 8kHz sampling
   frequency using the 'a=rtpmap' line.  Any number from 96 to 127 could
   have been chosen (the allowed range for dynamic types).

   The value of the sampling frequency MUST be either 8000 for narrow
   band operation, 16000 for wide band operation, and 32000 for ultra-
   wide band operation.

   As specified in RFC 4566 [RFC4566] if the ptime attribute is present
   for a stream, it indicates the desired packetization interval that
   the offerer would like to receive.  The ptime attribute MUST be
   greater than zero.  Note that the sender is still allowed to use a
   different packetisation interval.  Since Speex uses 20 msec frames,
   if the ptime attribute is not a multiple of 20 msec, the value MUST
   be rounded up to a multiple of 20 msec.  Rounding up is mandatory to
   satisfy bandwidth limitations.

   Implementations MUST support ptime of 20 msec (i.e. one frame per
   packet)

   An other way to make recommendations to the remote Speex encoder is
   to use its specific parameters via the a=fmtp: directive.  The
   following parameters are defined for use in this way:

      vbr: variable bit rate - either 'on' 'off' or 'vad' (defaults to
      off).  If on, variable bit rate is enabled.  If off, disabled.  If
      set to 'vad' then constant bit rate is used but silence will be
      encoded with special short frames to indicate a lack of voice for
      that period.


      cng: comfort noise generation - either 'on' or 'off'.  If off then
      silence frames will be silent; if 'on' then those frames will be
      filled with comfort noise.

Internet-Draft                    Speex                        June 2007


      mode: List supported Speex decoding modes.  The valid modes are
      different for narrowband and wideband, and are defined as follows:

      *  {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,any} for narrowband

      *  {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,any} for wideband and ultra-wideband

      Several 'mode' parameters can be provided.  In this case, the
      remote party SHOULD configure its encoder using the first
      supported mode provided.  When 'any' is used, the offerer
      indicates that it supports all decoding modes.  If the 'mode'
      parameter is not provided, the mode value is considered to be
      equivalent to 'mode=3;mode=any' in narrowband and
      'mode=8;mode=any' in wideband and ultra-wideband.

      Note that each speex frame does contains the mode (or bit-rate)
      that should be used to decode it.  Thus application MUST be able
      to decode any speex frame unless the SDP clearly specify that some
      modes are not supported. (e.g., by not including 'mode=any')

   The tables below include the equivalence between modes and bitrates
   for narrowband, wideband and ultra-wideband.  Also, the corresponding
   "Speex quality" setting (see SPEEX_SET_QUALITY in The Speex Codec
   Manual [speex_manual]) is included as an indication.

           Mode vs Bitrate table for wideband and ultra-wideband

                                  Table 2

   Examples:

      m=audio 8008 RTP/AVP 97
      a=rtpmap:97 speex/8000
      a=fmtp:97 mode=4;mode=any

   This examples illustrate an offerer that wishes to receive a Speex
   stream at 8000Hz, and wishes to receive speex 'mode 4'.  It is
   important to understand that any other mode might still be sent by
   remote party: the device might have bandwidth limitation or might
   only be able to send 'mode=3'.  Thus, application that support all
   decoding modes SHOULD include 'mode=any' as shown in the example.

   The offerer indicates the mode he wishes to receive (speex 'mode 6')
   followed by all supported modes (all speex mode).

Internet-Draft                    Speex                        June 2007


             m=audio 8088 RTP/AVP 97
             a=rtmap:97 speex/8000
             a=fmtp:97 mode=6;mode=any

   The offerer indicates the mode he wishes to receive (speex 'mode 3').
   This offer indicates mode 3 and mode 5 are supported and that no
   other modes are supported.  The remote party MUST not configure its
   encoder using another speex mode.

             m=audio 8088 RTP/AVP 97
             a=rtmap:97 speex/8000
             a=fmtp:97 mode=3;mode=5

   Several Speex specific parameters can be given in a single a=fmtp
   line provided that they are separated by a semi-colon:

      a=fmtp:97 mode=1;mode=any;vbr=on

   The offerer may indicate that it wishes to send variable bit rate
   frames with comfort noise:

             m=audio 8088 RTP/AVP 97
             a=rtmap:97 speex/8000
             a=fmtp:97 vbr=on;cng=on

   The "ptime" attribute is used to denote the packetization interval
   (ie, how many milliseconds of audio is encoded in a single RTP
   packet).  Since Speex uses 20 msec frames, ptime values of multiples
   of 20 denote multiple Speex frames per packet.  Values of ptime which
   are not multiples of 20 MUST be rounded up to the first multiple of
   20 above the ptime value.

   In the example below the ptime value is set to 40, indicating that
   there are 2 frames in each packet.

             m=audio 8008 RTP/AVP 97
             a=rtpmap:97 speex/8000
             a=ptime:40

   Note that the ptime parameter applies to all payloads listed in the
   media line and is not used as part of an a=fmtp directive.

   Care must be taken when setting the value of ptime so that the RTP
   packet size does not exceed the path MTU.

6.  Implementation Guidelines

   Implementations that supports speex are responsible for correctly
   decoding incoming speex frames.

   Each speex frame does contains all needed informations to decode
   itself.  In particular, the 'mode' and 'ptime' values proposed in the
   SDP contents MUST not be used for decoding: those values are not
   needed to properly decode a RTP speex stream.

7.  Security Considerations

   RTP packets using the payload format defined in this specification
   are subject to the security considerations discussed in the RTP
   specification [RFC3550], and any appropriate RTP profile.  This
   implies that confidentiality of the media streams is achieved by
   encryption.  Because the data compression used with this payload
   format is applied end-to-end, encryption may be performed after
   compression so there is no conflict between the two operations.

   A potential denial-of-service threat exists for data encodings using
   compression techniques that have non-uniform receiver-end
   computational load.  The attacker can inject pathological datagrams
   into the stream which are complex to decode and cause the receiver to
   be overloaded.  However, this encoding does not exhibit any
   significant non-uniformity.

   As with any IP-based protocol, in some circumstances a receiver may
   be overloaded simply by the receipt of too many packets, either
   desired or undesired.  Network-layer authentication may be used to
   discard packets from undesired sources, but the processing cost of
   the authentication itself may be too high.
