Qualcomm Technologies and China's Datang Telecom announced the first successful multi-chipset vendor interoperability of C-V2X radio technology based on 3GPP R14 specs, in Beijing. 

C-V2X technology improves automotive safety, automated driving, and traffic efficiency. The successful cross-chipset interoperability test utilized the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution and Datang’s LTE-V2X module, the DMD31. 

According to Qualcomm, C-V2X is the only V2X communication technology based on the global 3GPP Release 14 specifications for PC5-based direct communications in the 5.9 GHz ITS spectrum where vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) messages for collision avoidance can be sent without any dependency on cellular operator network involvement.  

C-V2X is also the only V2X communication technology with an ongoing evolution designed to offer forward compatibility in implementation with 5G NR C-V2X, added Qualcomm.

Nakul Duggal, VP of Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies
Achieving this milestone with Datang is quite significant as it exemplifies the technology maturity to support C-V2X commercial deployments starting in 2019.

Yingmin Wang, CTO, Datang Telecom Group
This interoperability test conducted with Qualcomm Technologies is of great importance and is a milestone for the industry as it is the first chip level PC5 Mode 4 interoperability test, which demonstrated the maturity and readiness of commercial deployment for C-V2X technology.
