BWCS Launches New Conference on Wireless Networks in Ports

Share Article

The new conference will feature real-life stories from leading Port Operators and Authorities across the world who have been immediately involved in the complexities of specifying and setting up their port’s wireless networks and trials.

The battle to supply ports with fast, reliable wireless networks is rapidly heating up. As Dockside authorities strive to add innovative, cost-saving services across their sprawling industrial landscapes, telecoms companies, buoyed by the increasing availability of private spectrum are rapidly moving in. Against this background, BWCS has announced a brand new conference for 2020 – Wireless Communications in Ports (http://www.PortComms2020.com).

“With some analysts predicting that the market for private wireless networks will eventually be twice the size of the commercial mobile market, there is a huge new interest in this sector.” Argues Ross Parsons director of Transport at Wireless Consultancy BWCS. “At the same time, Ports are steering rapidly towards smart services based on digital efficiency and solid wireless coverage.” He argued “We are bringing the two sides together to thrash out the problems and solutions.”

The conference will feature real-life stories from leading Port Operators and Authorities across the world who have been immediately involved in the complexities of specifying and setting up their port’s wireless networks and trials. As with BWCS’ successful TrainComms conference the company has focused primarily on getting the Port Operators themselves to attend and speak.

PortComms2020 is sponsored by Rajant Corporation one of the main players in this sector and recently supplied a wireless mesh network, based on its Kinetic Mesh® technology to DP World and the Port of Antwerp. Fluidmesh, another major sponsor has worked with La Spezia Container Port on where it supplied a new wireless network based on its Fluidmesh MPLS technology.

Huawei is also a major sponsor and has been involved in several major port projects across the world. In China, Huawei and China Mobile have been consolidating partnerships with ZPMC through projects such as the Shanghai Yangshan Port and Ningbo Port. In Europe, Huawei and ZPMC are working with telcos on solving other complex port scenarios.

For the first time, this conference will draw together all parties involved in this dynamic sector. It will focus on actual case studies from port owners discussing the issues they face as they start to implement continuous wireless network connectivity across their often complex campuses.

PortComms2020 will take place on April 1st at the Radisson Bloomsbury Hotel in central London. There is more information at http://www.Portcomms2020.com or e-mail Ross.Parsons@BWCS.com.
