The Global Certification Forum (GCF) activated certification of a test plan for Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything Communications (C-V2X). This test plan uses technology from Qualcomm Technologies and Keysight Technologies.

The test cases were validated at the GCF-hosted Conformance Agreement Group (CAG) meeting in July, and enabled the GCF to initiate radio certification of a C-V2X test plan based on The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 14. The test plan used Keysight’s RF/RRM DVT and Conformance Toolset and the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X Platform, a C-V2X modem chipset with Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). Test cases focused on Radio Resource Management (RRM) and Radio Frequency (RF) performance verification of devices used for Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) deployment.

“This accomplishment is the result of a long-standing working relationship with Keysight and serves as a significant milestone toward realizing a certification program the automotive industry can rely on to commercialize reliable C-V2X products,” said Prashant Dogra, vice president of engineering at Qualcomm Technologies. “C-V2X is a global solution for V2X communications, and improves automotive safety, automated driving, and traffic efficiency. Qualcomm’s automotive wireless solutions will continue to play an important role in supporting the growth of the C-V2X ecosystem.”
