5G at the helm

We’ll reveal why more connectivity means smooth sailing, and why bringing a private cellular network on board will supply the fast, reliable, and secure connectivity needed to transform a port into a more efficient one.

What you'll learn:

  • Why cellular technology is the best vessel for a port’s digital transformation.
  • The many ways connected ports can boost their productivity, cost efficiency, worker safety, and reduce their environmental impact.
  • How it’s possible to realize an ROI of 178% in five years.

What it covers

Ericsson, ifm, and Arthur D Little have created a report that reveals how to make a smoother journey to Ports 4.0 with a 5G-ready private network at the helm. We’ll assess five high-value use cases: remote-controlled ship-to-shore cranes, rubber-tired gantry cranes, automated guided vehicles, condition monitoring and drones.

Investing is smooth sailing

The report will show that all the use cases can pay for themselves in two to three years, and when all five are deployed together, complete payback comes in less than two years. That’s why the smart money is on smart ports.
