Hand-off

Just as someone might hand off a message or a task, a cell or cell site can hand off a call to another cell. This hand-off is vital for cellphone users who travel with their devices. Without a proper hand-off, their call will end as soon as they move out of range of one cell. Successful hand-offs ensure continuous, uninterrupted calls. The connection to the original cell isn’t cut off until a new connection is confirmed.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Hand-off

Small businesses may experience hand-offs within their offices, especially if they regularly use Wi-Fi calling or VoIP. These services hand off between digital wireless and traditional cellular sites, for uninterrupted service, even when the cell signal might be poor.
