5G Smart Sea Port: Hamburg Port Authority
This white paper describes the deployment of 5G testbed in Hamburg Port Authority. In July 2019, the Hamburg Port Authority, Deutsche Telekom and Nokia completed a 5G field trial at the Port of Hamburg, Germany’s largest container port. The trial demonstrated use cases that require 5G capabilities such as ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC), enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) and network slicing.
This case study describes how we used 5G to support use cases for traffic light control, AR/VR headsets and IoT sensors mounted on mobile barges. It shows how 5G provides countless possibilities to improve efficiency and sustainability in seaports and other complex and changing industrial environments.
