The global pandemic significantly disrupted global supply chains, forcing the industry to reconsider its capacity management and resiliency needs. In addition, growing demand in Asia has led to changing trade routes and ports. A drive toward sustainability has led the industry to commit to lowering CO2 emissions by 40% by 2030. All of these trends mean ports need to increase efficiencies from space management to port utilisation. Smart ports, automation and a real time view of operations help operators realise efficiencies across their business. High-speed, reliable connectivity is a key requirement for successful digital transformation in the ports and logistics vertical.
CENTAURI 10Gbps link deployed in less than half a day
Alignment process quick and easy
Link performance exceeded expectations: stable even in instances of rainfall of 70 mm/hr
Client reports performance is better than microwave solutions
Client is now considering CENTAURI for a load-balanced solution
To support digital transformation and automation, ports need to extend high speed connectivity across the campus in RF challenged environments.
Automation, digital applications driving 24x7 operations
Real time view of operations
Return on IT costs
Connectivity requirements to many more devices
Cybersecurity threats, quality of service expectations.
Long time to deploy
To lay fiber takes time, it requires digging a trench, laying conduits and then restoring back to original.
The civil works around laying fiber makes this proposition quite expensive.
Causes disruption to the environment
Digging and trenching causes disruption to the environment.
Ports need to allocate RF spectrum to many different port operations.
Requires regulatory approvals
Certain frequency bands require regulatory approvals and license fees.
Radio links can be easily intercepted and the data can be eavesdropped on.
Limited future capacity
eBand Radio operates at 80Ghz and has limited headroom for future bandwidth capacities.
Suffers from throughput throttling
Most radio solutions are layer 2 and employ bandwidth throttling in less than ideal conditions.
Solution for ports & logistics
The terminal operations management centre is at location A and the data collection and storage centre is at location B. The high speed connection between the two is critical for continuing port operations.
“The launch of this new demonstration site provides an alternative Transmission Solution for a new way to connect our digital future. As operators upgrade their infrastructure to cater to growing demand, wireless lasers provide a much needed alternative to both fronthaul and backhaul transmission. Mavenir is proud to join Transcelestial in achieving this milestone.”
Dr. Ray KirbyProfessor and UTS Tech Lab Centre Director, UTS (Australia)
“UTS Tech Lab is proud to partner with Transcelestial to launch this public demonstration site and to support the team as they make a significant breakthrough in global connectivity innovation. We are committed to fostering university and industry collaboration to deliver real-world solutions.”
HP LeeManaging Director, Teleplex Solutions Sdn Bhd.
“In Malaysia, connecting the last mile for rural areas remains a challenge for both government and enterprises, due to having to deal with difficult terrain when laying fiber cables. Partnering with Transcelestial means that we can offer a solution that enables total wireless connectivity using laser communications to reach out to the previously unreached, and also provide a less-costly alternative for fast connectivity in urban settings.”
Mash KhanCEO, LinkQuest FZCO
“The UAE currently faces two essential communication hurdles: spectrum congestion and network outages. Transcelestial wireless laser comms offers the best solution to address these head-on, being spectrum-free and not susceptible to fiber-related downtime. Partnering up means we can offer a less costly, time-saving alternative to customers whose connectivity plans are delayed by fiber cuts or right-of-way issues, often caused by fiber cables that can take months to resolve.”
Hendra LesmanaCEO, NTT Indonesia Technology
“Network-connected device types are multiplying, bringing important implications for the ecosystem of wired and wireless technologies, products, and services that will provide a foundation for tomorrow’s digital economy. This creates new demands for connectivity. Our new partnership with Transcelestial will combine the best of advanced technology and services and help our clients in Indonesia achieve secure and high-speed connectivity to fuel their innovations and gain competitive advantage.”
Batmunkh KhurelbatCEO, BestComputers
“Transcelestial’s wireless laser communications fills a gap for our customers who need an alternative to fixed-line infrastructure. This partnership with Transcelestial diversifies our portfolio offerings to ensure that we can truly uplift all Mongolians who lack access to high-speed connectivity.”
Jason KhuaGeneral Manager, Synetcom
“Campus environments face scaling challenges when trying to improve the quality of connectivity between buildings that are far apart. Currently, organisations only have two viable options – the first is deploying fiber cables which comes with a dollar and time cost to set up, the second is radio frequency-based solutions which are subject to interference from other channels and they lack security assurances. With Transcelestial’s technology, organisations get the best of all worlds – performance, quick to deploy and cost-effective, and without having to sacrifice quality connectivity for security.”
Tony SoGeneral Manager, Cyber On-Air
“Always-on connectivity has become more important than ever and solutions like Transcelestial’s offers a very strong value proposition for Cyber On-Air’s customers. We were impressed by the performance of their wireless laser technology, which also catered to environmental conditions specific to Hong Kong’s market, like monsoon seasons.”
