LAS VEGAS, 9 January, 2018 -- Spirent Communications plc (LSE:SPT), a global leader in test solutions for Automotive networking and communications, announced today its products will be showcased at this year’s CES by Tata Elxsi, a leading global Design and Technology services provider.

Spirent’s partnership with Tata Elxsi was announced in early 2017 and was soon followed by the adoption of their V2X test system by CAICT (http://www.caict.ac.cn/english/), a scientific research institute directly under the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China. The next generation test system developed by these two global leaders in test solutions for the Automotive industry provides a flexible, scalable and comprehensive test environment for testing and performance benchmarking of V2X applications, in various stages of the development cycle - from early research all the way to pre-production.

The adoption by CAICT, and the certification of this advanced V2X test system by the OmniAir Consortium, has strengthened both companies’ position as a result of the partnership.  Spirent and Tata Elxsi are proud to provide the Automotive industry with the capability to comply with standards mandated by the European ITS-G5 and the USDOT WAVE-DSRC standards, as per IEEE1609.x and SAE J2945/1.

Using a combination of Tata Elxsi's patent pending V2X Emulator software and Spirent's advanced solutions for GNSS and radio channel simulation, the integrated V2X test bed offers the ability to bring real-world traffic scenarios into the lab and thereby significantly reduces cost and time associated with extensive field testing.

"Spirent is proud to be a participant in this year’s CES,” said Abhitesh Kastuar, Spirent's General Manager for Automotive business.   “It is well known that the Consumer Electronics Show has become the leading proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies.  In recent years, CES has become the automotive industry’s premier venue to showcase advances in technology and introduce these innovations to the consumer marketplace. Spirent continues this innovative tradition by partnering with Tata Elxsi to offer leading edge solutions for testing autonomous vehicles.”

Spirent's Automotive solutions provide high quality testing of sophisticated infotainment, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) communication services.
