Nokia will deploy the first industrial-grade LTE private network in a port terminal in Chile at San Antonio Terminal Internacional (STI).
he new private wireless network will be based on the Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (DAC) platform and will use 4.9G LTE to deliver pervasive high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity, and improved network predictability in piers and yards.
Nokia will also provide the RAN network, training, implementation services and remote support. Nokia DAC is a private wireless network and edge computing platform designed to meet the needs of asset-intensive industries such as port terminals.
The platform will enable future use cases such as remote and autonomous crane operations within the piers and yards, as well as enable new capabilities at STI.
STI’s goal is to move towards becoming a digital port and the basis for this is to have a state-of-the-art, high-performance network for industrial use, which will allow transmission of data with higher quality, five times faster and with more reach.
In this way, it will continue to optimize its operation and service, catching up with the main ports in the world.
By deploying an industrial-grade private wireless network at San Antonio Terminal Internacional S.A. (STI), the port will have a robust, secure and predictable wireless connectivity platform
