Today's ports play a critical role in the global economy, and are at the heart of world trade and the movement of goods. While the shipping industry is extremely vital to this economy, the world's ports and waterways are vulnerable to a number of security risks.
As port authorities face increased security regulations and mandates, they also need to simplify operations to reduce their costs and improve operational efficiency.
Cisco Connected Port solutions provide a number of crucial benefits to port authorities, including:
- Intelligent traffic management, for fast, efficient cargo tracking and routing
- Consolidated, standardized infrastructure that reduces costs
- Optimized collaboration and enhanced communication between agencies
- Greater employee mobility, for improved productivity and safety
- Intelligent video surveillance and perimeter controls, for safer ports
Our vision was to enable users to connect easily to the new HPANet from anywhere in the port, no matter what device they're using. We've succeeded with a smart, comprehensive network from Cisco.Chief Information Officer, Hamburg Port Authority
Cisco IE 2000 and 3000 Series Switches
Cisco Industrial Ethernet (IE)2000 and 3000 Switches provide a rugged, highly secure infrastructure. With open standards-based security, Power over Ethernet (PoE), and industrial design and compliance, they are ideal for harsh outdoor environments.
This Cisco machine-to-machine gateway connects networks in even the harshest outdoor environments. It is designed to withstand the shock and vibration typical in the transportation industry.
Built on Cisco CleanAir technology, these are the first 802.11n access points to create a self-healing, self-optimizing wireless network.
Cisco Video Surveillance 6000 Series IP Cameras are high definition (HD) with an open, standards-based design. The cameras provide an ideal platform for operation as independent devices or as part of a Cisco Video Surveillance Network.
Cisco Unified Access converges wired and wireless networks into one physical infrastructure, with open interfaces plus greater intelligence, simplicity, and performance.
Cisco Connected Mobile Experiences solution is built on location intelligence from the Cisco Wi-Fi network and Mobility Services Engine. It can help transportation organizations increase efficiency with passenger location tracking, and boost satisfaction with location-enabled mobile applications.
Intelligent networking delivers faster cargo routing and employee mobility.
