Enabling Next-Gen Port Terminal Automation with LTE/5G Private Wireless


With port terminals looking to improve operational efficiency and increase productivity, new automation systems based on remote controlled, freely-ranging container handling equipment such as automated straddle carriers, are allowing more moves per hour and increased competitiveness through reducing cost per move.

Central to the success of remote-controlled operations is wireless connectivity. 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 aims to explore these issues and more, and will bring together senior stakeholders from across the industry to deep dive into the reliability benefits private LTE/5G provides, as well as the predictable wireless infrastructure needed to serve the whole terminal area securely via the Profinet / Profisafe protocols.
