LTE to HSPA Hand-Off Successfully Achieved
Today ST-Ericsson and Ericsson said that they achieved a real-world Long Term Evolution to HSPA data call hand-off using a multi-mode device. The device was running ST-Ericsson's commercially available M710 platform, which is compliant with 3GPP Release 8 standards. Multi-mode equipment that can run both LTE and HSPA will help ease the transition from 3G to 4G wireless services, as devices will be able to access and roam between the different types of networks.
Very good news for AT&T
This will be like the 3G battle, Verizon will more likely be at the top for this one too...
