Cellular Vehicle-To-Everything (C-V2X)

Cellular Vehicle-To-Everything

Cellular Vehicle-To-Everything (C-V2X) technology connects a vehicle to other vehicles (V2V), pedestrians (V2P), and infrastructure (V2I). Alepo’s 5G Converged Core enables service providers to support scalable and flexible V2X services using both EPC and 5GC. CSPs can leverage next-gen capabilities to facilitate a smart transport system, improve road safety, streamline traffic, enable autonomous cars, and much more.

What is Cellular Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X)?

Cellular Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X) technology facilitates smart transport systems by enabling vehicles to connect with each other, roads, roadside infrastructure, pedestrians, cyclists, and more. Combined with 5G capabilities such as ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC) and high bandwidth, it enables real-time exchange of data between all connected elements to ensure safer and more efficient travel.

What network technology does C-V2X communication use?

Based on 3GPP Release 14 specifications, C-V2X can operate in its own 5.9 GHz spectrum, as well as through traditional mobile spectrum. Release 15 included 5G for Vehicle to Network (V2N) use cases, and Release 16 defines parameters for 5G NR direct communications. While 4G LTE and 5G mobile networks both support C-V2X services, 5G is expected to unlock its full potential, enabling fully autonomous vehicles, supporting a large number of connected devices, and more.

C-V2X Use Cases

Enable Advanced C-V2X Use Cases

Vehicle-to-everything technology ushers in an era of safer and more efficient road transport than ever before. All vehicles will soon come equipped to support C-V2X functionality as a standard feature, enabling connectivity with other vehicles, people, roads as well as roadside infrastructure. This data will be exchanged in real-time, helping ensure efficient traffic management, reduce road accidents by minimizing sudden disruptions, optimize space by enabling cars to safely drive closer together, improve fuel efficiency, and much more.

The introduction of 5G is expected to enable a new era of vehicle-to-everything use cases, such as:

  • Fully autonomous self-driving vehicles
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Cars connecting to cyclists
  • Traffic lights alerting vehicles
  • Dynamic real-time maps
  • Central planning systems
  • Digitally collecting tolls from moving vehicles
  • High-density platooning
  • Precise positioning and ranging
  • Identifying empty parking slots
  • Hazard warnings
  • Cooperative driving

Deploy Using 5G Core

C-V2X use cases demand near-immediate response times and mission-critical low-latency. With capabilities such as URLLC and network slicing, 5G is expected to revolutionize the technology.

Trials are underway to see how existing cellular networks can be leveraged. 3GPP specifications for Cellular V2X include evolution from LTE and 5G, and the standards body is continuing to develop further specifications for 5G.

Alepo’s 5G Converged Core provides V2X support and includes subscriptions and policies, enabling CSPs to configure and manage subscription parameters. It supports UE authorization for EPC as well as 5GC. A 5G edge core with high transaction per second (TPS) enables low latency, ensuring vehicle safety even at high speeds. Alepo’s Subscriber Data Management (SDM) enables efficient data gathering, storage, and management that is vital to the success of C-V2X platforms. The SDM lets operators activate individual subscriber profiles for V2X services, enabling end-to-end connectivity.
