Boston, 2nd April 2021 – Athonet powers EDZCOM’s pioneering 5G Edge Connectivity solution for Steveco’s port terminals in Finland
EDZCOM, the Nordic market leader in Edge Connectivity, has partnered with Athonet to become one of the first providers to successfully implement 5G technology for an industrial, business-critical use: a tailor-made wireless connectivity solution to port operator Steveco’s terminals in Mussalo and Hietanen in Kotka, Finland.
Edge Connectivity solutions ensure a reliable and continuous connection, allowing terminal operations at Mussalo and Hietanen to flow 24/7 year-round. The geo redundant autonomous on-site installation infrastructure provides business resiliency against catastrophic events, natural disasters or other situations that might result in network or data outages for a period of time.
The indoor and outdoor coverage for cranes, vehicles and personnel in the harbor area has enabled seamless ship-land communication that in turn optimizes port operations.
