Five reasons V2X innovators need cellular networks

Since the turn of the century, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology has usually relied on dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) – a “Wi-Fi-like” protocol running on a reserved bit of spectrum to allow vehicles to talk to each other or to road-side infrastructure. Today, it’s much more likely that automakers and suppliers researching and building V2X solutions are […]
