Motorola Solutions docks at two local seaports

Motorola Solutions is implementing its state-of-the-art radio, mobile computing and wireless technology solutions at Vietnam’s two major seaports.

 

Motorola said its mobile computing and wi-fi technology was already in place at Danang port, the biggest seaport in the central part of the country. Motorola was selected based on its leadership in the information and communications technology industry and reputation for reliability. More importantly, it was well-acclimated to the port’s development plans.

 

“Motorola Solutions’ mobile computing and wi-fi technology provide Danang port full and reliable coverage, helping the operations and ensuring the management is more productive and efficient,” noted a Motorola press release which added, “The easy to use Windows CE platform is compatible with many of today’s mobile applications.”

 

Motorola’s solutions have helped improve the efficiency of the port’s container handling operations.

 

With a data transmission speed of 15 megabytes a second and intuitive graphic feature, operations have been streamlined and have become more accurate. Controllers are able to monitor and record container movements in real time and at exact locations, reducing manpower needs and paperwork. Loading and unloading time has also been reduced and capacity has increased.

 

“Once the IT system was upgraded, the container capacity at Tien Sa, one of the port’s major terminals, increased by 20 per cent on average over each of the past three years,” said Danang port deputy general director Nguyen Xuan Dung. “Modern technology and less manual labour as well as reduced auxiliary equipment needs and paperwork have made Danang port a safer and smarter place to work.”

 

In the past, less advanced technologies using the DOS operating system and old-fashioned radios caused inefficiencies. The port lacked a cable network and fiber-optic cables to connect fleets with the container yards.

 

Motorola’s technical solutions have also been used in Cai Lan International Container Terminal (CICT), a newly-established seaport located in the famous Halong city in the northern province of Quang Ninh. Solutions include MOTOTRBO capacity and a digital radio system that can be easily deployed and manage group communications. CICT’s evaluation of two-way radio systems was a critical part of the upgrade to ensure teams had consistent and constant communication. Efficiency and cost-effectiveness were two factors primary in the decision making process.

 

“We selected Motorola because of its solid references, notably SSA Marine, and compared to other providers it has solid after-sales services, a reliable warranty policy, and extensive installation support,” said Cai Lan port’s customer relations director Nguyen Thai Hoa.

 

The system has the advantage of a ‘trunking feature’ which provides clearer signal, longer battery time, and clear channels under an expanded capacity for the terminal. Most importantly, it has greatly enhanced efficiency. The 36 group talks among the fleet can easily communicate and coordinate through the sharing of 10 trunked channels. Using the call feature, the operation can also contact the entire fleet in an instant. The system has been lauded for its reliability, coverage, and capacity.
