Cohda Wireless’s world-leading vehicle technology solution, the MK6, has been certified by the OmniAir Consortium®, the US’s leading industry association promoting interoperability and certification for Intelligent Transportation Systems, tolling, and connected vehicles. The MK6 is the first C-V2X Road-Side unit (RSU) to be certified for deployment within the United States by OmniAir and follows certification by FCC (United States), CE (Europe), UKCA (United Kingdom), ISED (Canada), and KC (South Korea).

The MK6 RSU was found to conform to OmniAir’s LTE-V2X (RSU) Release 1 Conformance test specifications. These industry-developed test cases are based on state-of-the-art technology standards for connected vehicles and transportation environments. OmniAir Certified® devices are tested for conformance to industry standards, as well as interoperability, performance, and security requirements.

“Congratulations to Cohda Wireless for being the first to achieve OmniAir Certification for a C-V2X RSU under the FCC Waiver,” said Jason Conley, Executive Director of OmniAir Consortium.

“OmniAir is committed to supporting the deployment of trusted, interoperable, and certified V2X technologies to improve road safety in the United States and throughout the world. This milestone will allow for the deployment of C-V2X technologies within the 5.895-5.925 GHz band to support intelligent transportation systems (ITS) operations.”

Cohda CEO Dr. Paul Gray said that OmniAir certification paves the way for the MK6’s widespread deployment across the United States.

“This is another very welcomed and significant validation of our connected vehicle technology that cements the MK6 as the solution of choice in the rapidly growing US market,” explained Dr. Gray.

In January this year, Cohda’s MK6 was certified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) which recently granted waivers permitting deployment of cellular-vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology in the upper 30 MHz of spectrum in the 5.895-5.925 GHz band. As a participant in the FCC Joint Waiver program, Cohda was the first to receive the green light for C-V2X (B47) from the FCC for its Original Equipment Products MK6 RSU connectivity device.

Cohda launched the MK6 in late 2022 as the world’s most advanced and versatile V2X connectivity solution. The MK6 RSU (Road-Side Unit) and OBU (On-Board Unit) offer the most comprehensive connectivity capability as standard features, including DSRC, C-V2X, LTE/5G and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth. Cohda’s V2X stack and applications are already the most widely deployed in the industry, but the MK6 is its most capable, most versatile, and most powerful platform to date.

The MK6 features NXP® Semiconductors’ RoadLink® SAF5400 and SXF1800 chipsets as well as the Qualcomm Snapdragon® Auto 5G Modem-RF Platform.
