Rohde & Schwarz’s V2X communication tester approved by the GCF.

Rohde & Schwarz and Quectel validate C-V2X test cases

  • Rohde & Schwarz has validated, in partnership with Quectel, a selection of 3GPP test cases with its R&S CMW500 broadband radio tester combined with a Quectel AG15 C-V2X module.

Cellular-V2X (C-V2X) is a key technology which will improve road safety and accelerate autonomous driving in the coming years. Specifically, the C-V2X PC5 interface, operating in the 5.9 GHz frequency enables direct, reliable, low latency communication between vehicles (V2V), vehicles and infrastructure (V2I) and vehicles and pedestrians (V2P).

The test cases performed by Rohde & Schwarz and Quectel are ideal for automotive companies looking to pre-validate 3GPP system performance in an automated manner before entering OMNIAIR or CATARC certification process. The automated and configurable test system meets the requirements of the automotive industry for C-V2X testing.

A key benefit for customers is the ability to leverage existing investments in Rohde & Schwarz equipment, thereby minimizing additional capital investment.

The Quectel AG15 is an automotive grade C-V2X module designed and manufactured according to IATF 16949:2016 standards. It is designed for use in extremely harsh environments and provides superior ESD/EMI protection performance.
