Telefónica España, the Andalusian local government, and vehicle testing and inspection expert DEKRA opened the doors to a new research and development laboratory for 5G vehicle‑to-everything (V2X) technology. The centre, which includes a testing circuit and a private LTE‑5G network, aims to strengthen the development of 5G V2X technology through testing and innovation (Telefónicawatch, #138). María Jesús Almazor, Telefónica España Chief Executive, used the launch to express the Group’s commitment to future mobility: “we must face a series of challenges, including connectivity, so that all actors in this ecosystem are committed to mobile access and C‑V2X [cellular V2X] technology”.
