This TS specifies the stage 1 description of Explicit Call Transfer (ECT) from the service subscriber's and user's points of view.

Here is a short description of the ECT service:
  • The ECT supplementary service enables the served mobile subscriber (subscriber A) who has two calls , each of which can be an incoming or outgoing call, to connect the other parties in the two calls and release the served mobile subscribers own connection.
  • Prior to transfer, the connection shall have been established on the call between subscriber A and subscriber B. On the call between subscriber A and subscriber C, either the connection shall have been established prior to transfer, or, as a network option, transfer can occur while subscriber C is being informed of the call (i.e. the connection has not yet been established.)
  • This service is applicable to telephony (Teleservice 11) only.
