The vision of cooperative, connected, and automated mobility (CCAM) in Europe can only be realized, when harmonized solutions that support cross-border traffic exist. The possibility of providing CCAM services across different countries for vehicles driving across various national borders has a huge innovative business potential. However, the seamless provisioning of connectivity and the uninterrupted delivery of real-time services across borders also pose technical challenges, which 5G technologies promise to solve. The situation is particularly challenging given that multiple road authorities, telecoms network operators, telecoms vendors, car manufacturers, and network generation scenarios are involved in any crossborder layout.
