Building a Modern Port
The modern shipping port is a highly active work center that requires coordination and efficiency under strict time restraints. Port operators are investing in efficiency programs by optimizing manned operations and increasing automation for their berth, yard, rail, and road traffic. Modern operations include smart port technology such as video streaming, AR applications, and reefer monitoring for real-time feedback on refrigerated assets. Massive machine-type communications (mMTC) are required to handle the heavy volume of sensors needed to collect safety data from ships, such as carbon monoxide emission levels.
