Keysight Technologies has entered into an alliance with Nordsys GmbH to combine the two companies cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) and testing competences.
The companies signed a license agreement at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona that enables Keysight’s test solutions to include central software components from Nordsys for testing V2X systems. The partnership includes test solutions for long-term evolution-vehicle (LTE-V), as well as 5G in the future.
According to Manfred Miller, managing partner of Nordsys, the agreement with Keysight is an important step for company’s V2X licensing business, and the modern software architecture of V2X stack and the entire waveBEE® Eco system fits “perfectly” into the system architecture of Keysight’s test solutions.
The waveBEE Stack is the central communication component for networking vehicles with each other (V2V) or with the infrastructure (V2I). Communication with the environment is regarded as one of the key technologies for automated driving. In terms of the software architecture, the waveBEE stack is designed to provide a uniform interface for various target markets (North America, Europe, China) and their standards.
According to the company, combining Keysight’s C-V2X Test Solution with the modular and proven waveBEE® stack would equip customers for future applications and transmission technologies, such as hybrid communication, and original equipment manufacturers and suppliers will receive a V2X test platform that meets all the requirements of the automotive industry for comprehensive testing.
