Keysight Helps Accelerate C-V2X Technology for Connected Cars in China

Keysight has announced an extended collaboration with Chinese internet and telecom solutions provider, GOHIGH Data Networks Technology Co Ltd, to accelerate cellular-vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology for connected car applications.

C-V2X serves as the foundation for vehicles to communicate with each other and everything around them. Long-term evolution-vehicle to everything (LTE-V2X), a C-V2X technology defined by the third-generation partnership project (3GPP) in its release 14 standard, supports side-link and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications using PC5, LTE’s direct interface.

GOHIGH is a leading company in C-V2X standardization and industrialization under CICT (China Information & Communication Technologies Group Corp). It successfully used Keysight’s C-V2X measurement solutions, including N7626C Signal Studio for V2X and N9080EM4E X-Series Measurement Application for LTE V2X, to validate the radio frequency (RF) performance of the company’s DMD31 LTE-V module. This enabled GOHIGH to accelerate commercial readiness of connected car applications.

The collaboration between Keysight and GOHIGH enables manufacturers of LTE-V standard-based chipsets, devices, as well as on-board units (communication devices mounted on vehicles) and roadside units (communication infrastructure located on the roads), to validate the radio frequency (RF) performance of the PC5 interface. This ensures reliable deployment of C-V2X technology. Users of Keysight’s software-rich and integrated C-V2X solutions can quickly validate LTE-V RF measurements from early R&D to design verification test (DVT) and manufacturing.

In 2016, Keysight and Datang signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on research and development of 5G communication technologies. Last year, Keysight announced the signing of a new purchasing framework agreement with China Information and Communication Technology Group (CICT), a newly formed company that combines the strengths of Datang Telecom and FiberHome, to focus on the industry's latest communication technology in broadband construction, 5G, and information security.
