Testing, inspection and certification company SGS has awarded the first Global Certification Forum (GCF) Certification for cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology.
The certification was awarded to IoT solutions provider Shanghai Quectel Wireless Solutions (Quectel) for its proprietary C-V2X module AG550Q-NA. The certification denotes that the design and manufacture of the AG550Q-NA is compliant with 3GPP international communication standards and confirms its interoperability in international mobile operator networks.
SGS is stated to be the first third-party laboratory in the world to have invested in C-V2X technology, and now has more than four years’ experience in product testing. The certification company’s team worked closely with Quectel to ensure the AG550Q-NA module met the strict technical requirements of 3GPP standard.
“Safety is mission critical to the automotive industry, and comprehensive testing and compliance is the means by which manufacturers and regulatory bodies aim to achieve it,” said Joe Chen, automotive wireless senior director, connectivity and products, SGS.
“We are delighted that our collaboration with Quectel has resulted in this ground-breaking certification, and we look forward to continuing our productive relationship to further improve the sensing and interaction capabilities of intelligent vehicles.”
