Automatic Handover Between TD-SCDMA and GSM Networks
Wed, 09/26/2007 - 8:17am
T3G technology Co., Ltd. (T3G) and NXP Semiconductors (NXP) announce their voice automatic handover of multi-mode TD-SCDMA and GSM/GPRS/EDGE in a handset, enabling seamless usage for end-users by providing bi-directional on-the-fly automatic handover between TD-SCDMA and GSM networks. These powered multi-mode handsets can automatically scan for available networks and switch between TD-SCDMA and GSM networks. While a call is being placed, a TD-SCDMA/GSM phone equipped with the automatic handover feature moving out of TD-SCDMA network coverage will automatically switch the user onto the existing GSM network without any adverse effects such as call drop. Because the network selection and transition are done by the phone automatically, subscribers will not have to make any manual selection of service for a seamless transition.
