Accelerating the Future of Intelligent Transportation
Creating intelligent solutions for a connected world
Transportation companies today are investing in technology that makes their networks safer, faster, and more efficient. Investment from the United States of Transportation (USDOT) has led to the launching of intelligent transportation systems or ITS around the nation.
Intelligent Transportation System uses advanced communications technologies in vehicles and transportation infrastructures to better safety, mobility along with efficiency. Apps can share information from that to help with traffic along with being of more service to the public.
Over the past several years, the USDOT and its operating administrations have engaged in numerous activities related to connected vehicles, which generally encompass vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P) communications, collectively known as V2X.
BEC's solutions utilize Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) technology. A standard defined by the globally recognized 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) to replace the existing US-promoted Dedicated short-range communications (DSRC), and Europe originated Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS).
C-V2X is based on 4G LTE mobile cellular connectivity. It's established in 3GPP Release 14 for safety applications and supported for 5G with 3GPP Release 15/16 for advanced use cases. C-V2X is designed to support active safety and help enhance situational awareness by detecting and exchanging information using the low-latency direct transmission in the 5.9 GHz Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) band or the conventional mobile networks.

5G/4G LTE Commercial Network Solutions
BEC offers custom solutions to support the connectivity needs of transportation operations and help equip transport services. Our cloud platform BECentral® offers intelligent management. It is also a comprehensive suite of services to improve operational efficiencies and optimize service delivery to accelerate your ITS deployment.
BEC's Roadside Unit (RSUs) are rugged outdoor platforms with integrated antennas housed in an IP68 rated enclosure. BEC's RSU integrates seamlessly with existing traffic infrastructure, allowing in-vehicle/mobile devices to communicate with transportation infrastructures, like traffic controllers and backhaul networks.
As part of the connected vehicle system, this alerts drivers to adverse driving conditions, provides preemption for first responders, and signals priority for buses and service vehicles.
C-V2X Onboard Units (OBU)
Onboard Units (OBUs) from BEC combine automotive-grade design, high-performance CPUs, and multiple connectivity options such as Ethernet, Cellular Modem, GPS, DSRC, and C-V2X. The platforms are designed for easy integration into OEM and aftermarket vehicles that collect real-time driving information from other vehicles and roadside equipment.
