Achieve Truly Mission-Critical Port Connectivity

  1. 1. Rajant Kinetic Mesh® Networks in Ports Keeping the World’s Goods Moving Seamlessly and Securely
  2. 2. 2 THE PORT INDUSTRY: A Large Market 90% of the world’s trade is carried by the international shipping industry 50,000+ merchant ships trade internationally, transporting every kind of cargo 20,000,000 TEU make up the aggregate capacity of the global container ship fleet 19,000+ TEU containers can be carried on a single large ship
  3. 3. 3 THE PORT INDUSTRY: A Growing Market 7 The number of consecutive years that NAFTA has reported an increase in NA port container traffic since 2010. 944,000,000 The gross weight of goods, in tons, that E.U. ports handled in the 2nd quarter of 2016 alone. 259,000,000 The increase in container port traffic, in TEU, of East Asian / Pacific seaports from 2000-2014. 48,000,000 The TEU volume reported for LA and Caribbean ports in 2015, reflecting 1.7% growth from the prior year. 15,592,000 The total TEU volume for Dubai’s flagship port in 2015 – a 2.2% increase from the prior year. Overall, the global container shipping capacity is expected to grow by 8.4% in 2017.
  4. 4. 4 THE PORT INDUSTRY: Global Proportions There are over 4,900 ports spread throughout 196 of the world’s countries. Significant concentration of ports in USA (west coast, east coast, gulf), Europe (northern, Mediterranean, Iberian) and East Asia.
  5. 5. 5 OPERATIONAL REALITIES: Port Communications Challenges Complex, massive, aging infrastructure Multiple, disparate networks meeting different security and operational needs Enormous volume of large, constantly moving containers that can create interference and restrict signal range Security concerns, with terrorists knowing that striking a port facility can significantly impair a nation’s economy Harsh coastal environments with extreme weather and temperatures Outgrown wired infrastructure – wired build- outs and laying cable are not feasible in commissioned ports Meeting tenants’ varied needs to safely and efficiently move cargo on and off ships, repair vessels, and adequately supply ship Diverse community of users involved in operations require secure, anytime-anywhere access to data, voice, and video Need for real-time information to direct the flow of goods, personnel, and vehicles
  6. 6. 6 OPERATIONAL REALITIES: The Security Factor Ports already have layered security systems that could include fencing, sensors, access control, CCTV, radar, sonar, and land and waterside patrols. But, security is becoming more complex, and with more people, equipment, and thousands of TEUs passing through each day, inspection of every container is impossible. So how are ports using technology to create better situational awareness, reduce losses and damage, and speed first response when issues do occur? Automating security processes with UAVs, UGVs, and video surveillance. Port Fourchon in Louisiana provides port police with remote access to the 1,700-acre port’s IP video surveillance cameras in their vehicles. The UAV / LIDAR market is expected to increase by 20% – or by $1 billion – by 2020. Abu Dhabi’s ports are using drones to strengthen security with monitoring of difficult to access locations. As of June 2017, three separate companies are now testing UGVs in Boston’s Seaport District. The world UGV market is expected to grow by a CAGR of 30% to 2019.
  7. 7. 7 THE PORT ENVIRONMENT: Many Moving Assets Ports must deal with an ever- increasing number of workers, ships, containers, equipment, and vehicles moving in, out, and across their environment.
