FSTC expands it's portfolio by Prisma's EmergencyNET.

EmergencyNET constitutes a complete mobile network able to manage voice, SMSs and data connections even in case of standard networks breakdown.
Using EmergencyNET, the rescuers can communicate with any mobile device by establishing voice calls and by sending and receiving SMSs.

The temporary emergency network can act as a Voice Responder which can intercept any call from any victim, giving help and providing more info on emergency management such as “send an SMS with your name, current location, number of people involved to 133, will call-you back to manage your rescue”.

At the 2015 Car2Car Forum in Mainz Niels Peter Skov Andersen, General Manager of the Car2Car Communication Consortium, announced that the Consortium members have agreed to delay the deployment of ITS-G5 communication in Europe to 2019.

Qosmotec showed a method for validating the channel models that are applied in QPER for signal propagation by comparison with measurements on the road. 

It had something of a premiere: For the first time Qosmotec officially showcased its test bench setup for Car-to-X communication testing.

At the 8th Car2Car Forum at Stadthalle Braunschweig FSTC together with Qosmotec had built up a 5-port QPER system with two IEEE 802.11p capable radio modules.
The demonstration attracted many of the 250 congress participants, who appreciated to see a complete example for a hardware-in-the-loop test benches on our booth.
