Ettifos released software-based 5G NR V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything). On the 4thof November, Ettifos held a demonstration of its software-based 5G NR V2X sidelink modem solution at Pangyo Techno Valley’s Start-Up Campus in Seongnam, South Korea. The demonstration was attended by roughly 40 experts from institutions such as the Korea Evaluation Institute of Industrial Technology (KEIT), Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), Korea Automotive Technology Institute (KATECH), Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI), and LG Innotech.
Ettifos‘ 5G NR V2X sidelink modem deviates from the existing hardware technology and instead is based on a software-defined radio (SDR) platform and was able to implement the new C-V2X standard, finalized this past July, in just 5 months. This paves the road for potential industry projects using the 5G NR V2X sidelink’s various functions without waiting for the chipset-based 5G NR V2X module. Ettifos also announced that it plans to provide a 5G NR V2X Developer Platform usable by research organizations, cellular service providers, and V2X equipment manufactures within Q2 of 2021.
