Autotalks expands into China with LTE-V2X Solution

Autotalks, which develops V2X (Vehicle to Everything) communication solutions, is expanding its operations to China in order to bring its global V2X offering to the Chinese intelligent and connected vehicle industry. The company cites China as a fast-growing region in the automotive and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) segments and believes that LTE-V2X technology has been recently gaining strong momentum in the region. To support the expansion, Autotalks recruited Mr. Xiaobing Yang, who will lead Autotalks’ business development efforts in China out of Autotalks’ new branch in Beijing. Mr. Yang apparently has over 25 years of experience in the Chinese telecom industry.

Recently, Autotalks launched a global V2X solution supporting both DSRC and LTE-V2X (also known as C-V2X) based on its second generation chipset, with the intention of expanding its global footprint into China. Autotalks’ LTE-V2X direct communications (PC5) solution is separated from the cellular Network Access Device (NAD), resulting in a secure and standalone LTE-V2X solution.

Ram Shallom, Autotalks’ VP of Business Development and Marketing in Asia-Pacific told Connected Car, “Autotalks’ unique value proposition gained the attention and interest of the leading automotive players in China. With a decade-long track record, backed by mass production awards from top global automakers, we are committed to work closely with the Chinese automotive ecosystem to bring our disruptive cybersecure global V2X solution to mass deployment and start saving lives on China’s roads, while easing global expansion.”
