M1 inks deal to develop Jurong Port into advanced digital smart port (Singapore Business Review)

The telco will enhance the port’s network coverage to boost connectivity and operational efficiency.

M1 signed a Memorandum on Understanding (MOU) with Jurong Port to provide a terminal-wide wireless private network to support the port’s transformation into an advanced digital smart port, an announcement revealed.

Jurong Port is said to play a key role in Singapore’s economic growth as it has been a cornerstone in the country’s development as a global hub port.

According to the parties’ joint statement, M1 will leverage on its heterogeneous network (HetNet) to enhance the network coverage in the terminal and along the port’s berths to promote greater connectivity and operational efficiency.

“The heterogeneous network solution is aligned with Jurong Port’s strategic technology roadmap and this partnership will further equip Jurong Port with the technology platform for the Internet of Things (IoT) and wearables endeavours and autonomous drones exploration,” Jurong Port vice president of information technology Sam Wei Hoong said in a statement.
