Autotalks, a world leader in V2X (Vehicle to Everything) communication solutions and Rohde & Schwarz, a leading supplier of test and measurement solutions to the wireless industry, validate first ever global C-V2X chipsets.
Announced last September,Autotalks’ deployment-ready,second generation V2X chipset is the only available solution capable of supporting both DSRC and C-V2X (also known as LTE-V2X or LTE-V) direct communications (PC5 protocol) at the highest security level. The chipset supports DSRC based on 802.11p/ITS-G5 standards and C-V2X based on 3GPP Release 14 and Release 15 specifications.
Rohde & Schwarz and Autotalks have successfully tested Autotalks’ second generation chipset as the C-V2X UE with the R&S CMW100 communication tester. During the test, multiple test scenarios were verified for transmission and reception of C-V2X direct communications (PC5) based on 3GPP Release 14 using GNSS based synchronisation.
Amos Freund, Autotalks VP of R&D said: “Rohde & Schwarz’s test equipment helped us validate our solution in record time and reach maturity. The radio performance and security merits of our global solution coupled with our recent expansion into China put us in a great position towards mass commercialisation of C-V2X technology in China and elsewhere in pursuit of saving lives on roads in the near future.”
Anton Messmer, vice president Mobile Radio Testers at Rohde & Schwarz said: “We are happy that Autotalks chose Rohde & Schwarz to provide instruments needed to reach this milestone. Rohde & Schwarz enables the automotive industry in validating the functionality and performance of C-V2X devices with our comprehensive test suite.”
Autotalks will be demonstrating its C-V2X capabilities based on Rohde & Schwarz equipment in the upcoming CES 2019 exhibition, which will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada from January 8th to January 12th 2019. The Autotalks solution is available for demonstrations and can be validated using Rohde & Schwarz test equipment.
