OmniAir Consortium®, the leading industry association promoting interoperability and certification for ITS, tolling, and connected vehicles, today filed comments with the Federal Communications Commission, in support of waiver requests by Georgia Department of Transportation, Florida Department of Transportation, and Maryland State Highway Administration to deploy and operate Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) technology in the 5.895 – 5.925 GHz Band.

“OmniAir urges the Commission to grant the C-V2X Waver Requests as soon as possible, and to publish final C-V2X technical and service rules.” said Jason Conley, Executive Director of OmniAir Consortium.  

Granting waiver requests will help to provide certainty to state and local governments preparing to deploy connected vehicle and connected infrastructure across the United States.  Waivers, and ultimately, final C-V2X technical and service rules are necessary for equipment certification programs that help to ensure conformance and interoperability.

Independent, third-party testing and certification programs provided by OmniAir® are critical to ensuring V2X communications are “trusted” across devices and applications. V2X deployers, including infrastructure owner-operators, automotive OEMs, and device manufacturers, rely on OmniAir Certification to demonstrate that the C-V2X devices they deploy will provide “trusted” communications.  

In 2021, OmniAir launched the world’s first certification program for C-V2X radios operating in the 5.9 GHz Band.  OmniAir Certified® conform to industry standards, and meet minimal interoperability, security and performance requirements.
