Commsignia, a market leader in V2X solutions, has recently officially joined the IMT 2020 Promotion Group, which works on 5G research and development, standardization, and technical trials in China. Commsignia is now a member of the IMT2020 C-V2X Working Unit.
IMT2020 was founded by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Development and Reform Commission, and the Ministry of Science and Technology. It leads 5G standardization and industrialization efforts and also aims to strengthen international R&D cooperation. Its members are mostly key regulators, operators, and vendors as well as academic organizations. China has identified C-V2X as the technology to be used for V2X and intelligent transport systems, with the 5.9 GHz spectrum assigned for ITS deployments and trials.
By joining IMT2020, Commsignia aims to leverage its expertise in V2X to participate in creating communications solution standards and interoperable products that will ultimately enable vehicles to be fully automated, making future mobility safer and more efficient.
“Commsignia has been a pioneer in the V2X industry, and we are excited to be one of the largest V2X companies to complete the joining process and get the opportunity to participate in promoting V2X in China. I believe that by leveraging the global industrial experience we have gained developing automotive products, we can become a valuable contributor to the organization, and the cause as well” – Jozsef Kovacs, CEO, highlighted. “China has expressed a preference for C-V2X technology, and with its focus on deployments, we are excited to work with the organization and its members.”
The Membership Status is effective as of August.
