Autotalks and Datang successfully complete Chinese C-V2X direct communication interoperability testing
Autotalks, an Israel-based provider of V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication solutions and China’s Datang, a leader in developing C-V2X communications standards and the provider of system solutions for C-V2X, have successfully tested chipset-level interoperability of their respective solutions for C-V2X direct communication.
The testing took place during the final week of June in Beijing. The interoperability test enabled both companies to validate their solutions and determine that they interwork properly according to 3GPP Rel. 14 standards.
Autotalks’ and Datang’s successful interoperability testing is the world’s first based on the latest CCSA (China Communications Standards Association) standard draft. The testing is a milestone and demonstrates the readiness of the standalone PC5 solutions of Autotalks and Datang. This achievement is a stepping-stone towards the expected wave of C-V2X deployments in China, since having vehicles with different chipsets communicate with one another is a prerequisite for mass deployment of C-V2X.
