Developed in conjunction with the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA), GCF’s cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) certification programme has been created to meet the needs of the automotive industry as it manages the growth of connected vehicles and infrastructure. The programme initially enables companies and organisations to certify their C-V2X capable products to C-V2X PC5 Mode 4 short range functionality in Band 47 and will be extended to support LTE and 5G based V2X Uu (V2N) long range functionality. PC5 Mode 4, standardised by 3GPP, allows for direct communications between vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) equipment without the need to connect to the cellular network.
Typical products benefitting from the programme include, but are not limited to, onboard units (OBU) and roadside units (RSU).
The GCF C-V2X certification programme is available to GCF members and also to non-GCF members (the latter on a pay-per-certification basis).
All product testing must be performed by a GCF Registered Test Organisation (RTO).
