International call progress tones for IP-PBX and VoIP telephony

Telephone Line Signalling

Answer tone

  • The answer tone is the first signal sent by the answering modem after the billing delay, serving various purposes.
  • In its most basic form, it is a single continuous tone with a frequency of 2100 Hz (or 2225 Hz for Bell modes).
  • The plain 2100 Hz tone disables echo suppressors on international trunk connections.
  • It may include 180° phase reversals at intervals of 450±25 ms to disable network echo cancellers.
  • It may also be 20% amplitude modulated by a 15 Hz sinewave to indicate ITU-T V.8 capability.
