A private LTE mobile network to be used by Konecranes could help increase automaton and intelligence at ports.

The mobile broadband will be built on Konecranes' premises in Hyvinkää. Finland, as part of a three-year cooperation agreement with data operator Ukkoverkot and Nokia to help Konecranes take advantage of 5G concepts and a global digital automation platform for research and product development.

Stephan Litjens, general manager, digital automation at Nokia, stated: "Our technology allows Konecranes to significantly increase the level of automation and analytics by adding more sensors, actuators, video cameras and other appliances into their already world-leading solution.”

The research and product development will be undertaken in the areas of ‘Industrial Internet of Things’ and business-critical broadband connectivity.

Juha Pankakoski, executive vice president, technologies at Konecranes, said: “We believe that better communication capacity, reduced latency and computing power provided in the network infrastructure will enhance our current offering or create something completely new.

“The new mobile network technology has the potential to bring machine-to-machine communications, IIoT security and machine learning to the next level, which would benefit ports and large manufacturing operations.”
