Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X)

September 9, 2021

C-V2X is a cellular technology that facilitates very fast communication of critical data between a connected vehicle and connected infrastructure. It is based on 4G-LTE cellular technology, but uses the 5.9GHz spectrum and communicates directly between devices, not through a cell tower. C-V2X is not the same as 5G. C-V2X has been developed in recent years, and is deployed in only a few locations at this time, with limited evaluation of its capabilities. UDOT has deployed and tested this technology.
