The joint development of a medium bit-rate speech coder along with an effective channel coding technique to provide a robust, spectrally efficient, high-quality mobile communication system is described. A subband coder operating at 12 kb/s is used; in the absence of channel errors, it provides speech quality comparable to current analog land-mobile radio systems. The coder design incorporates a unique coding of the side information to facilitate the use of forward-error-correction coding without the need to code the entire bit stream. The use of excessive overhead for redundancy is avoided while the harsh effects of frequent channels are mitigated. These techniques have been used in an experimental FDMA (frequency-division multiple access) digital land-mobile radio system. The combined speech and channel coder operates at 15 kb/s and provides intelligible speech at fading channel error rates up to 8%
