Huawei launched its first C-V2X commercial product, a Road Side Unit (RSU) at the recent MWC Shanghai 2018.
According to Huawei, the RSU takes the lead in supporting communication encryption over the Uu and PC5 interfaces to ensure safe communications. Additionally, wired and wireless access modes are used to flexibly connect road facilities such as signal controllers, facilitating project deployment, says Huawei. The RSU also supports Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and China's BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS).
The latency over PC5 is less than 20 ms and it supports 20 MHz bandwidth of the 5.9 GHz frequency band, which is a frequency band deployed by most countries for Intelligent Transportation System, claims Huawei.
During the event, Xu Wenwei, Huawei's Executive Director and President of Strategic Marketing, also presented Huawei's strategy for cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X).
