San Antonio Terminal Internacional SA's (STI) private network will provide broadband connectivity, lower latency and greater predictability. The on-premises, high-performance, end-to-end Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (DAC) provides industry-grade connectivity and edge computing capabilities for digital transformation at the terminal.November 30, 2022 - Santiago de Chile - Nokia today announced that it is deploying the first industrial-grade private LTE network at the San Antonio Terminal Internacional SA (STI) port terminal in Chile.
The new private wireless network will be based on Nokia's Digital Automation Cloud (DAC) platform and will use 4.9G LTE to provide widespread, high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity and better network forecasting at piers and yards. It reliably and securely connects hundreds of workers, sensors, equipment and vehicles across a 31-hectare site. As the sole supplier of the project, Nokia will also provide the RAN network, training, implementation services and remote support.
Nokia DAC is an innovative high-performance end-to-end private wireless network and edge computing platform designed to meet the critical needs of asset-intensive industries such as port terminals. The platform enables future use cases such as remote and autonomous crane operations on piers and yards, and enables new capabilities at STI.
San Antonio Terminal Internacional SA (STI) is Chile's main port terminal and one of the most important port terminals in South America. It is also the closest port to all major cities in Chile, only 110 km away. From Santiago via Highway 78; and is also connected to several key production centers in southern Chile.
STI's goal is to move towards becoming a digital port, and this is based on a modern, high-performance network for industrial use, which enables - for example - better quality data transmission, five times faster and with greater reach. In this way, it continues to optimize its operation and service, catching up with the main ports of the world.
Marcelo Entreconti, head of Nokia's corporate Latin American division, said: “With the construction of an industrial-grade private wireless network at San Antonio Terminal Internacional SA (STI), the port will have a robust, secure and predictable wireless connectivity platform. With this project, STI is taking an important step on its digitization journey, improving safety and productivity with a future-proof platform that can support digitalization and automation use cases.”
Nokia has deployed critical networks for more than 2,200 of the world's leading enterprise customers in the transportation, energy, enterprise, manufacturing, ports, web and public sectors. We have expanded our expertise to more than 485 large private wireless customers worldwide, across a variety of industries, and are cited by many industry analysts as the leading private wireless network provider worldwide.Via Link
