DETROIT, June 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Savari, Inc., a Silicon Valley based auto tech company, today announced the development of its third-generation roadside unit (RSU), the StreetWAVE™ 2000. Expected to sample in Q4 of this year, the StreetWAVE 2000 will be Savari’s first “bridge” device that will incorporate both dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) and Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) radios simultaneously to ensure maximum adaptability for Intelligent Transportation Systems.

Featuring the Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X chipset solution, the Savari SW-2000 RSU becomes one of the first solutions based on the C-V2X chipset for direct communications operating in the 5.9 GHz ITS spectrum, and it is the latest example of the company’s pioneering efforts in delivering advanced solutions for connected vehicles and smart cities. The Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution is a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated.

Savari has demonstrated its leadership and product reliability through thousands of StreetWAVE RSU deployments worldwide. Savari solutions deliver performance in any climate, having been subjected to temperature extremes ranging from the freezing cold of a Michigan winter to the extreme heat of an Arizona summer. Working alongside the broad automotive and telecom ecosystems, Savari is applying its expertise and capabilities to aid in the development of C-V2X through the StreetWAVE 2000 RSU, as well as the Savari MobiWAVE™ C-V2X software stack. The StreetWAVE 2000 RSU features the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution, which has been involved in numerous trials and performance tests worldwide this year.

“Savari is the leading vendor of RSU products, with years of trial deployments, and we are happy to work with Qualcomm Technologies to provide the most advanced, dual radio technology RSU architecture yet. This combination of Savari ITS infrastructure expertise with Qualcomm Technologies’ cutting-edge C-V2X chipset solution aids in providing customers with the most flexible and capable roadside unit available,” said Ravi Puvvala, CEO, Savari.

“Qualcomm Technologies is pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Savari. We are pleased that Savari has chosen our Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution to create a new category of RSU products that will assist in bridging the path to next generation connectivity,” said Nakul Duggal, vice president of product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Supporting road operators with advanced V2X solutions for roadside infrastructure is an important step to accelerate adoption of this technology, and help to enhance automotive safety and create smarter cities.”
