In Conclusion
CSFB offers a solution with the cost, size, and battery life advantages of single-radio solutions,
LTE data speeds, and reliability/ubiquity of 2G/3G voice

Redirection-based CSFB using Release 9 SI Tunneling, for both 3G and 2G offer call delays
within subseconds of legacy call setup delay

Redirection-based CSFB offers call reliability on par with legacy call setup reliability Compared to dual radio solution, e1xCSFB offers more cost effective device solution and also
with shorter call setup delay
