Ettifos Granted Permission to Deploy C-V2X Technology in U.S. 5.9GHz Band 

Ettifos has been granted permission to deploy Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) technology in the United States 5.9GHz band by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). 

The company is one of 11 that received approval as part of the latest round of waiver requests, others include the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, Continental, and Nissan. 

Following this, Ettifos will now be able to implement its C-V2X solutions to improve safety and increase traffic efficiency across U.S. roads.

C-V2X technology enables the communication between vehicles, infrastructure, and pedestrians. Within the United States, the FCC regulates the use of the 5.9GHz band which makes these communication exchanges possible. That is, FCC approval is necessary for any organization to undertake projects or deploy technology that make use of it.

The 5.9GHz band is solely dedicated to V2X communications, and currently, C-V2X uses the upper 30 megahertz portion (5.895–5.925 GHz).

Sungsoo Hong, Ettifos Chief Business Officer, said:

We are delighted to have been granted the waiver request to deploy C-V2X solutions using the 5.9GHz band.

The United States is actively developing policies related to the usage, deployment, and development of V2X technology, which shows recognition of its importance and the life-saving benefits. This waiver request grant once again shows commitment to the technology, and we look forward to deploying our solutions to connect road users across the U.S., ensuring safety and efficiency for all.

For Ettifos, this marks a significant moment as we are able to enter the U.S. market and accelerate our development of global smart transportation systems. We completed multiple joint proposals earlier this year with partners in the U.S. to secure a V2X grant opportunity supported by the Department of Transportation which can be complemented by this C-V2X waiver.
