Commsignia announces partnership with Spirent for V2X Market

Spirent Communications announced that it has agreed to partner with Commsignia, the provider in Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication protocol stack and V2X Hybrid/ADAS solutions to provide the market with the most reliable and complete testing platform for the certification of V2X devices to the latest global standards. As part of the co-operation, Spirent will combine Commsignia’s V2X Software Golden Sample with Spirent TTsuite-WAVE-DSRC test system whilst Commsignia will use the Spirent TTsuite-WAVE-DSRC test system as a pre-certification tool for its Unplugged-RT V2X Protocol Stack.

Spirent and Commsignia are both members of the OmniAir Consortium which is responsible for certifying V2X devices and their communication software, in order to ensure that all the devices on the US and global markets are interoperable and compliant with current standards and regulations.

Automotive OEMs, Tier-1s, smart cities and governments are investing heavily in V2X Communications technology. In the near future, V2X communications will be used to assist drivers with notifications such as collision and road work warnings, lane closures, traffic signal phase and timing, to optimise the safe flow of traffic and ultimately to enable fully autonomous vehicles to operate in a cooperative manner to avoid collisions.

Abhitesh Kastuar, Spirent’s general manager for Automotive solutions explains, “V2X-enabled vehicles are already in mass production and major deployments are expected by 2019. As V2X requires interoperability among the devices used for communication supplied by many radio and communication software stack suppliers, testing for standards compliance and interoperability among these devices is crucial.”

According to Alain Vouffo, automotive product manager at Spirent, “After thorough research and testing of available V2X communication software stack solutions, Spirent has selected Commsignia’s Unplugged-RT V2X Communication Protocol Stack as the Golden Sample for V2X Software testing to combine with Spirent TTsuite-WAVE-DSRC test suite. The system is available now for the test houses, OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers wishing to validate and certify their V2X solutions.”

Jozsef Kovacs, Commsignia CEO commented, “Commsignia is committed to providing V2X software that meets the most rigorous testing and functional criteria of V2X use cases. Spirent was a natural choice for Commsignia to partner with, as both of our organisations strive to provide certified, validated solutions to meet the needs of our customers.

Spirent’s offering covers standard variants both in the US and in Europe and will help ensure Commsignia compliance to the latest standards. We are proud that Spirent, a globally renowned brand for standards testing, has selected Commsignia to provide the reference V2X communication software stack for its TTsuite-WAVE-DSRC V2X conformance testing.”

Spirent’s TTsuite-WAVE-DSRC is among the first qualified test solutions approved by OmniAir for WAVE-DSRC certification. Spirent’s V2X conformance test suites enable full test automation and provide global V2X standards coverage, including both the European ITS-G5 and the USDOT Certification Operating Council (COC) for WAVE-DSRC compliance to meet continuously changing development requirements.

The two companies plan to expand their partnership with joint solutions to cover the testing requirements of future global V2X standards, including the upcoming C-V2X/LTE-V and 5G technologies.
