AT&T strikes deal with Toyota, walks the line on C-V2X / DSRC debate, Jan 2019
"AT&T has slipped out a minor announcement about LTE connectivity on latest-model Toyota and Lexus cars and trucks in the US, starting from the fall, just as the technology and automotive markets appeared in a newly climactic embrace ahead of the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Last Vegas this week."

"But near-term car connectivity is a sideshow this week, as autonomous driving comes into clearer view at CES. Amid the bluster, the declaration from Ford that cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) is the only way to go for driverless cars was notable."

"Competitor brands, meanwhile, including AT&T’s latest LTE-partner Toyota and Ford’s country rival General Motors, are backing Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) technology instead, in what the New York Times has described as the automotive sector’s VHS/Betamax moment."

FCC to create new 6 GHz unlicensed band | PolicyTracker, Oct 2018
"The Federal Communications Commission has agreed to publish a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that would allow unlicensed use of the 6 GHz band. The band, which is also being studied in Europe, is widely seen as the world’s next major band for unlicensed applications.

"Under the terms of the proposals, unlicensed access to the 850 MHz of spectrum would be controlled by a lightweight database. This approach, often described as automated frequency control (AFC), is designed to prevent interference to incumbent fixed links. "

"Satellite earth stations use the band for uplinks throughout the band, but particularly within the U-NII-5 frequencies. The FCC does not think these applications should be taken into account by AFC databases because the receivers (satellites) are located so far away from Earth."

"Cable lobbyists the NCTA, as well as Commissioners Michael O’Rielly and Jessica Rosenworcel, have recently promoted the possibility of a Further NPRM (FNPRM) for the 5875–5925 MHz range. ... That band has been reserved in the US for Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC), ... FCC chair Ajit Pai would not commit to an FNPRM, but ... This did not impress Commissioner Rosenworcel."

NCTA, Wi-Fi Alliance push for 5.9 GHz sharing | FierceWireless
"The National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) and the Wi-Fi Alliance are continuing their arguments for updating the commission's rules and permitting unlicensed operations in the U-NII-4 portion of the 5 GHz band to meet the demands for Wi-Fi."

"A report by CableLabs concludes that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) objectives for DSRC can be served through a single 10 megahertz-wide channel."

5GAA, NGMN argue for cellular, not DSRC, in NHTSA proposal | FierceWireless
Out with the old, in with the new, according to several cellular industry groups commenting on the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) plan to use dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) to improve road safety.

The deadline was April 13 for the public to comment on the NHTSA’s plan, which proposes requiring vehicle-to-vehicle devices to “speak the same language” through standardized messaging and would require automakers to include V2V technologies in all new light-duty vehicles. Designating a single language would solve the problem of dueling protocols, but opponents argue that DSRC is already outdated and shouldn’t be mandated. In fact, many commenters don’t want to see any specific technology mandated at all.

Qualcomm, NCTA, auto makers push for 5.9 GHz testing for vehicles - FierceWirelessTech Sep 2015
"Automobile associations, as well as the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA), Intelsat and Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) are all asking the FCC, in coordination with the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Department of Commerce (DOC), to conduct thorough testing for the development of vehicle safety technology in the 5.9 GHz band. The 5.9 GHz stakeholders and a group of lawmakers -- Commerce Committee chair Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) and senators Corey Booker (D-N.J.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) -- sent essentially identical letters to the FCC, DOT and DOC urging them to work together to facilitate testing that could be concluded by Dec. 31, 2019, notes Broadcasting & Cable."

U.S. Department of Transportation Announces Decision to Move Forward with Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communication Technology for Light Vehicles | National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
"The U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced today that it will begin taking steps to enable vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication technology for light vehicles. This technology would improve safety by allowing vehicles to "talk" to each other and ultimately avoid many crashes altogether by exchanging basic safety data, such as speed and position, ten times per second."

European C-ITS to take priority over Wi-Fi in 5.9 GHz band - PolicyTracker Feb 2014
"Brussels reassures industry that Wi-Fi in the 5.9 GHz band will not be allowed to interfere with C-ITS." "The focus for many of those at the 6th ETSI Workshop on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) is the development of standards for Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), which will enable vehicles made by different manufacturers to communicate with each other and with road infrastructure systems. The so-called "Release 1 specifications" for C-ITS have just been adopted and issued. A European Commission official assured delegates at the workshop that harmful interference from Wi-Fi in the 5.9 GHz band would be prevented. He said Brussels is committed to C-ITS, even if it means jettisoning plans to allow Wi-Fi to share C-ITS's 5.9 GHz band allocation."
