The Future of V2X: 30 MHz Application Map Webinar

On January 27, ITS America hosted a webinar with members of our Future of V2X Working Group to present the Working Group’s preliminary 30 MHz Application Map.  ITS America was joined by Mark Knellinger from Cisco, Jim Misener from Qualcomm, and John Kenney from Toyota to discuss the Application Map, which attempts to identify which V2X message types and applications would likely be deployed in a limited 30 MHz spectrum environment and which would likely be lost in such a scenario.  The Application Map shows the need for the full 75 MHz of spectrum in the 5.9 GHz band by identifying the applications that will likely be lost, and it provides a starting point for charting a path forward to safely deploy V2X technologies in limited spectrum should the FCC’s proposal to reallocate 45 MHz of spectrum in the 5.9 GHz band be finalized.


A recording of the webinar, a copy of the presentation, and ITS America’s 30 MHz Application Map are available on ITS America’s website here.
