The 802.11p/WAVE standards propose a set of technologies and protocols to establish Vehicle-To-Vehicle (V2V), and Vehicle-To-Infrastructure (V2I/I2V) communications. Although important research efforts have been devoted to guarantee the delivery of safety information in vehicular networks, the support of infotainment traffic has been traditionally displaced as a problem to be solved by other types of access networks, such as 3G or WiFi. Nevertheless, the deployment of infotainment applications, and consequently of IP-based communications, would certainly help accelerate the market penetration and leverage the deployment costs of the 802.11p/WAVE network.
