GCF certification is now able to provide assurance that dual-mode LTE/3G (UMTS/WCDMA) devices can hand-off sessions between the two radio-access technologies (RAT) in ways that conform to the relevant 3GPP standards.

Within weeks of the necessary test cases for dual-mode interworking being agreed, validated and activated by GCF, the Samsung SC-01D became the first dual-mode device to achieve certification.

GCF operator members from Asia, the Americas and Europe have identified combinations of RAT and spectrum bands for which theyexpect market demand.

These RAT/band combinations will be brought within GCF certification as the test cases are validated at the required frequencies.
