This paper proposes a novel post-processing technique to improve the coding quality of CELP under background noise. It adaptively smoothes both the spectral envelope and the energy of the estimated excitation signal to reduce their temporal fluctuations, which cause the perceptual degradation. The excitation signal is calculated using the synthesized signal and the spectral parameters given from the decoder. Thus, the proposed post-processing is performed separately from the decoder. The smoothing is applied only in non-speech periods and the smoothing strength is controlled depending on the characteristics of the synthesized signal to avoid the degradation in speech and non-stationary noise periods. Subjective test results show that the proposed post-processing improves degradation mean opinion score (DMOS) by 0.2 to 0.4 for noisy speech signals, which are coded by the GSM adaptive multi-rate (AMR) codec
