For ports, going digital is going smart.

In response to the rising demands of cargo volume and vessels size in catching up with the global trading hubs, port terminals are looking to improve operational efficiency and increase productivity. Meanwhile, port authorities must also ensure that they remain attractive by enhancing their smart port journey with the availability of critical infrastructure.

New automation systems based on remote-controlled, freely ranging container handling equipment are allowing more moves per hour and increased competitiveness by reducing cost per move. Therefore, bringing connectivity and technologies to transportation equals allowing the existing assets to achieve the ultimate harmony in operating.

Existing communications technologies such as Wi-Fi are challenged to meet reliability and coverage demands in dynamic physical environments, and often hinder the deployment of new automation systems. Private wireless networks based on LTE and 5G are the key to unlocking new productivity gains.

This webinar will explore how Cellnex and Nokia can help you lay the foundation for your smart port automation and digitalization journey thanks to wireless technologies and leading-edge use cases supported by private wireless.

Topics Covered
  • The generation of productivity and business-critical strategies given by Private Wireless Networks

  • Private Networks enable spatial efficiency, operational transparency, and technological advancements for Ports

  • Collaborative supply chain synergies for Ports ecosystems brought by ground-breaking use cases
