March 23, 2023

SGS has awarded the world’s first Global Certification Forum (GCF) Certification for cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology to global IoT solutions provider, Shanghai Quectel Wireless Solutions Co., Ltd. (Quectel) for its self-developed C-V2X module AG550Q-NA.

Now listed on the GCF official website, certification guarantees that the design and manufacture of the AG550Q-NA is compliant with 3GPP international communication standards and confirms its interoperability in global mobile operator networks.

SGS was the first third-party laboratory in the world to invest in C-V2X technology and has acquired over four years’ experience in product testing. Its expert team worked collaboratively with Quectel to ensure its AG550Q-NA module met the strict technical requirements of 3GPP standard. 

V2X wireless communication technology enables intelligent vehicles to interact with other vehicles, the infrastructure and pedestrians around in real time. Driven by “Smart Car” and “Smart Road,” the technology of connecting vehicles with everything is expected to further improve the medium and remote sensing and interaction capabilities of intelligent vehicles.
