5G Americas latest white paper entitled “Vehicular Connectivity: C-V2X and 5G,” which covers the impacts of 5G-based cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technologies on vehicles, embedded infrastructure, and intelligent transportation networks.
According to 5G Americas, there is growing global momentum in C-V2X based trials with early deployments from several automotive OEMs and strong progress in the US, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. While the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has allocated 30 MHz of spectrum in the 5.9 GHz ‘ITS band,’ more advanced connected vehicle services will need at least 40 MHz, as specified by the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA). At the same time, C-V2X practitioners will need to be aware of additional deployment considerations, such as the need for more Over-the- Air (OTA) software updates and ‘car-to-cloud’ ecosystem features, a greater need for security and privacy protections, as well as backward compatibility and support for new features.
“Vehicular Connectivity: C-V2X and 5G” was developed and written by a 5G Americas technical work group led by network engineering experts from Qualcomm Technologies Inc. and other member companies. It includes the following topics:
- Connectivity requirements for 5G and C-V2X for different ITS services using vehicle-to-infrastructure or vehicle-to-network models
- Spectrum needs and requirements for 5G and C-V2X
- New business models and opportunities for different stake holders, such as network and RSU operators, automotive OEMs, and third-party application developers
- Security considerations and recommendations
- Summary of evolution path and new features for C-V2X technologies
