Event Overview  Agenda 

Industry Standard C-V2X

Connected vehicles will drastically improve traffic safety and efficiency, reduce air pollution, transform entire cities, and improve quality of life for millions of people – but only with a reliable, secure technology solution and the backing of a strong ecosystem.

C-V2X (Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything) is the official industry standard technology for vehicle communication and allows vehicles to talk to each other, roadside infrastructure, pedestrians, cyclists and the mobile network. It is capable of meeting the industry’s need for secure, reliable, proven and scalable solutions for a number of reasons:

  • It is commercially available globally today by using the existing LTE network infrastructure
  • It is backed by a strong ecosystem of world-leading industry players, including mobile operators, automotive manufacturers, vendors and suppliers
  • It provides levels of security, range, latency and reliability that have been proven to vastly exceed the capabilities of alternative technologies
  • It is the only connected vehicles technology with a sustainable roadmap to 5G which is vital to the enablement of fully autonomous and cooperative driving.
