GSA Identifies 25 Operators Involved in LTE & 5G-based Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything Technology Trials

by GSA
The Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) today reported that 25 mobile operators are involved in trials of LTE- or 5G-based Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) technologies, paving the way for the development of the 3GPP-based ecosystem that has emerged around the technologies, including the availability of C-V2X chipsets, on-board units (OBUs), and roadside units (RSUs).

Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology enables equipped vehicles to communicate with other devices in their surroundings those carried by pedestrians, other vehicles, or devices embedded in road traffic systems. V2X promises to make the roads safer for all users and more convenient for drivers by enabling a wide range of new safety, information and entertainment applications.

Key data in the GSA's new C-V2X Market Report, available to download here, reveals:

  • 25 operators involved in trials of LTE or 5G-based C-V2X technologies
  • Three 3GPP Release 14 compliant C-V2X chipsets
  • Eight pre-commercial and commercial automotive-grade modules supporting LTE or 5G for C-V2X from seven vendors
  • 16 C-V2X RSUs from 13 vendors
  • 14 C-V2X OBUs from 12 vendors

Joe Barrett, President of GSA commented: "In July this year, the EU rightly decided that Intelligent Transport Systems should be neither limited by technology nor place Europe and mobile and automotive companies at a clear disadvantage to other regions of the world. This latest data on the momentum behind 3GPP's C-V2X technology vindicates that decision, demonstrating that when innovation is left free to flourish, progress is faster to the benefit of the economy, industry and citizens."

The GSA report details C-V2X use cases, operator and government investments and the commercial status of LTE and 5G-based C-V2X technology and products.
