By leveraging the use of wireless communication technologies and edge computing capabilities, Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) aim to improve safety and traffic management in mobility use cases. However, the deployment of C-ITS poses some critical challenges. Specifically, in heterogeneous systems, it is necessary to guarantee interoperability among the various available wireless technologies. This paper presents a cloud native infrastructure architecture for vehicular communications that guarantees the interoperability between cellular technologies (4G/5G), and specific Vehicle-to- Everything (V2X) communication technologies, such as LTE- PC5 and IEEE 802.11p wireless communications standards. Such interoperability is demonstrated through the implementation of an Edge Infrastructure where a vehicle equipped with one of the aforementioned radio access technologies, sends cooperative awareness messages, and such messages are received in vehicles provisioned with different wireless technologies.
