Autotalks and Datang recently announced that they have successfully tested chipset-level interoperability of their respective solutions for C-V2X direct communication.
Autotalks is V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication solutions company and China’s Datang develops C-V2X communications standards and the provider of system solution of C-V2X.
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.
The interoperability testing was based on the latest CCSA (China Communications Standards Association) standard draft. The testing is viewed as a milestone and demonstrates the readiness of the standalone PC5 solutions of Autotalks and Datang.
The companies see this achievement as 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.
