Ports and Harbours
The Port - Gateway to the world
Today, major ports are more than just mooring and berthing facilities for vessels to load and unload passengers and cargo. They are highly-complicated logistic centres that use an infrastructure which is often more complex than that of a small town. Although the local distribution area is not very large, there is growing demand for integrating many different communication technologies within one port communication platform.
Small and local, but by no means old-fashioned
A modern, international maritime or inland port typically focuses on local and internal communication needs, but that’s no reason to avoid the latest technologies. Instead, take advantage of modern communication technologies like VoIP and state-of-the-art network equipment. Increase your efficiency by using a fully-digital and centralised switching system to enable access to all communication resources from any operator position. Integrate all forms of communication with both sensor information and other data.
