Autotalks, a global pioneer in V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication solutions, and Rolling Wireless, the worldwide supplier of cellular connectivity solutions for the automotive industry, have announced a strategic collaboration aimed at accelerating the deployment of next-generation V2X solutions.

To satisfy the growing demand for 5G-V2X solutions from manufacturers of vehicles, e-bikes, and road infrastructure equipment, Rolling Wireless selected Autotalks’ SECTON3 and TEKTON3 chipsets.

The Autotalks’ SECTON3 chipset powers Rolling Wireless RX135x V2X module. This module, which will enable manufacturers to offer advanced (Day 2+) safety applications, is now available for samples and targets customer programs with Start of Production (SOP) in 2026.

Rolling Wireless is also actively developing a V2X module based on Autotalks’ next-generation TEKTON3 chipsets, more suitable for e-bike market needs, in addition to the vehicle needs.

"We are thrilled to collaborate with Autotalks to bring the first complete 5G-V2X solution to market," said Andreas Kohn, COO at Rolling Wireless. "Our combined strengths position us as the ideal partners for automotive, e-bike, and road infrastructure manufacturers seeking robust and future-proof V2X solutions.”

Yuval Lachman, Autotalks’ VP Business Development Europe and US, added: "Our joint efforts with Rolling Wireless help bring the next generation of V2X technology to the entire ecosystem. The RX135x module brilliantly demonstrates the capabilities of our SECTON3 chipset, and its availability represents a significant milestone on the path to safer and more efficient road transportation for everyone.”

Autotalks’ SECTON3 and TEKTON3 chipsets are the first to support all four V2X sidelink communication standards: LTE-V2X, IEEE 802.11p (DSRC), 5G-V2X, and 802.11bd. In addition to 5G-V2X operation, they enable the concurrent use of two radio technologies (such as DSRC + 5G-V2X). This allows the integration of 5G-V2X while preserving compatibility with legacy technologies in existing installed bases.

The Rolling Wireless RX135x is a dual-mode V2X module supporting both legacy (LTE-V2X/DSRC 802.11p) and next-generation technologies (NR-V2X/DSRC 802.11bd). It allows single-channel as well as concurrent dual-channel operation. The module can be connected either to a Rolling Wireless 5G Network Access Device (NAD), using the NAD’s application processor, or to any external host processor to run the V2X stack and applications.
