Summary:
Society's increased demand for communications requires searching for techniques that preserve bandwidth. It has been observed that much of the time spent during telephone communications is actually idle time with no voice activity present. Detecting these idle periods and preventing transmission during these idle periods can aid in reducing bandwidth requirements during high traffic periods. While techniques exist to perform this detection, certain types of noise can prove difficult at best for signal detection. The use of wavelets with multi-resolution subspaces can aid detection by providing noise whitening and signal matching. This thesis explores its use and proposes a technique for detection.
