Car2X communication based on WLAN 802.11p is described in the communication protocols IEEE WAVE for the USA and ETSI ITS-G5 for Europe. In this paper we looked into the single-hop beaconing mechanisms and congestion controls of both standards. Each standard includes an own definition of beaconing and congestion control. By implementing both parts of the standards within the OMNeT++ framework VEINS different single-hop scenarios were looked into and an achievement assessment was provided concerning the congestion control mechanisms and the beaconing.
