echo happens usually at the hybrid between the analog and digital circuits.
if it's a pure VoIP call, then echo is most likely caused by the microphone
or speaker of the handsets you're using. echo cannot be introduced on the
wire in a pure VoIP call as the transmit path does not leak into the
however, if you have shaping turned on, any traffic latency caused by the
traffic shaper could affect the jitter of your voip packets. if you've got
a jitter buffer or some sort of PLC (packet loss concealment) in your voip
devices, this could be causing the buzz. try turning off PLC.
