As automotive technologies continue to advance and vehicles become increasingly connected and autonomous, cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) is becoming an important technology enabler for the connected car of the future. With a strong evolutionary path that brings 5G-NR enhancements, C-V2X will enable the transportation industry with enhanced V2V, V2I, V2P and V2N wireless capabilities, including extended communication range, improved reliability and NLOS performance to enable vehicles to talk with each other and the environment around them. 3GPP C-V2X Release 14 specifications were completed in March 2017, numerous trials have been announced globally and several collaborations between the automotive and telecom industry have been forged. C-V2X traction and broad ecosystem support exists and will enable C-V2X to be commercialized quickly and economically.

Join our automotive experts for this webinar to learn more about:

  • The important role C-V2X will play in improving safety and supporting autonomous cars
  • How the ecosystem is coming together to support the commercial reality of C-V2X
  • How Qualcomm is further accelerating the readiness of C-V2X technology
  • The economic benefits of C-V2X as seen from the automaker

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
