Connecting Ports With 5G

The fifth generation of wireless communications is coming. Known as 5G it is set to reshape our relationship with wireless connectivity. While 5G continues to make headlines for average consumers, from an industry perspective ports and terminals are now exploring how 5G can help enhance operations.

With a rapidly growing Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous equipment and other exponential technologies 5G will surely have an impact on operational prosperity at ports.

The use of 5G will allow ports to be more connected than ever and can find use cases across a number of terminals within the ports from RoRo to cruise.

This edition of the eJournal explores 5G and wireless connectivity within the port.

We also explore automation and other exponential technologies that are vital for any modern port going forward.
