Reportedly, Verizon Communications, Inc. (VZ) has entered into its first private 5G contract in Europe with Associated British Ports for the deployment of the mobile network at the Port of Southampton, with the port becoming the first mainland port in the UK to have private 5G.
On England’s south coast, Port of Southampton is one of the largest and busiest ports for cruises and cars, handling about 900,000 cars and millions of cruise passengers annually. In October, Verizon struck deals with Microsoft and Nokia for deploying private 5G. The telecom giant is working with Nokia to build private networks for manufacturing and logistics companies in international markets, where it does not have its own network.
“We have been able to equip ABP to take advantage of the immediate benefits private 5G offers, and take full advantage of new technology applications and real-time analytics which will digitally transform its services in the future,” stated Tami Erwin, CEO, Verizon Business.
The technology is expected to help the port with real-time analytics, autonomous guided vehicles, asset tracking, and safety monitoring.
