OmniAir Offers Testing for C-V2X Devices Québec Plugfest

OmniAir Consortium®, the leading industry association promoting interoperability and certification for ITS, Tolling and Connected Vehicles, will be working with test equipment vendors Keysight Technologies, Rohde & Schwarz and Spirent to offer comprehensive C-V2X testing for the first time at their upcoming Québec Plugfest.

Keysight Technologies brings their N9020B MXA Signal Analyzer and N5182B MXG Vector Signal Generator for Physical Layer (Non-Signaling) testing on the C-V2X PC5 Sidelink; allowing them to perform 3GPP test cases to verify the performance of C-V2X devices meets requirements. For more information on Keysight Technologies’ recently announced SA8700A C-V2X Signaling Test Solution based on the E7515B UXM-5G Test Set including an integrated ITS Stack and easy traffic scenario generator SW in partnership with Nordsys, please visit:

Rohde & Schwarz will bring test equipment that is designed to test the entire C-V2X stack; from PHY through APP layers. C-V2X device makers attending will have a unique opportunity to test end-to-end scenarios like transmission of basic safety messages and Emergency Electronic Brake Light (EEBL) over PC5 interface. Rohde & Schwarz’s latest C-V2X test solution is comprised of the CMW500, SMBV100 and Vector’s CANoe Car2X software. The test station is capable of generating a few hundred vehicles thereby simulating real life scenarios like road intersections and congestion on a freeway. This versatile test setup also supports GCF protocol conformance testing specified in work items 281 (V2V) & 282 (V2X).

Spirent is bringing their TTsuite WAVE-CV2X test solution for WAVE signalling protocols (SAE J2735 and IEEE1609.3, IEEE1609.2) over 3GPP PC5 sidelink interface. Spirent test solution supports fully automated test execution using the TCI interface in the same TTworkbench environment used successfully at OmniAir Plugfests for testing conformance to DSRC signalling protocol (certification). The system includes a Spirent GNSS simulator that is controlled by the test system to simulate mobility for application testing.

We invite you to join us in Québec, if you have not purchased a device testing ticket, but plan to attend, please download the device profile form and submit it to Randy Roebuck, Omni Air’s Vice President of Engineering & Technology Programs, as soon as possible. The last day to purchase a device testing ticket is Wednesday, May 1.  Question about attending the Plugfest may be directed Ryan Hall, Senior Director of Marketing and Business Development.

Who Should Attend?

  • DSRC and C-V2X device manufacturers interested applying for OmniAir Certification.
  • Government officials interested in deploying OmniAir Certified™ vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) technology
  • Automotive OEMs and Tier One suppliers interested in certification for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) technology
  • Engineering and consulting firms interested in learning about connected vehicle deployment opportunities in Québec and across Canada

This week-long event, hosted by Propulsion Québec, will feature a Connected Vehicle Policy Conference, followed by four days of intensive device testing with leading test laboratories and test equipment providers.
