Geoverse, a national operator of private cellular networks for the enterprise, announced it has agreed to provide a private cellular solution for Oakland Maritime Support Services (OMSS) at the Port of Oakland. The private LTE network will leverage Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) to enable multiple intermodal container yard management applications. The private LTE deployment will be one of the first intelligent port solutions rolled out with CBRS in the U.S.
“We seek to gain new efficiencies by using wireless, IoT and the available analytics to enable multiple smart port applications by leveraging this reliable high-speed mobile data and communications platform, By partnering with Geoverse, the OMSS will be able to enhance its existing infrastructure to support the emerging demands through the use of intelligent intermodal applications such as container yard workflow analytics, environmental monitoring, smart gate management, and drone surveillance.”Bill Aboudi, president of OMSS
OMSS deploys the Geoverse GeoCore Evolved Packet Core (EPC) as the crucial control element to run the CBRS network infrastructure and the connected endpoints across the port. Several mobile devices and endpoints will be populated with a Geoverse SIM card, allowing them to securely connect to the private network and utilize capabilities such as outbound roaming should they need to transit off-site.
OMSS plans to expedite its digital transformation by using the Geoverse service platform to facilitate sitewide wireless coverage, Industrial IoT, and advanced analytics to make its container yard operation more productive and efficient. With Geoverse, OMSS is leveraging the cellular network to better handle its growing container traffic, the tightening demands on the supply chain, and the ever-increasing dynamic handling volumes.
