Geoverse Brings the Power of Private LTE/5G Networks to the Port of Oakland

Geoverse | June 14, 2021

Geoverse, a national operator of private cellular networks for the enterprise, announced it has agreed to provide a private cellular solution for Oakland Maritime Support Services (OMSS) at the Port of Oakland. The private LTE network will leverage Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) to enable multiple intermodal container yard management applications in the first and new innovative port use cases and applications in follow-on phases. The private LTE deployment will be one of the first intelligent port solutions rolled out with CBRS in the U.S.

OMSS deploys the Geoverse GeoCore Evolved Packet Core (EPC) as the critical control element to manage the CBRS network infrastructure and the connected endpoints across the port. In addition, several mobile devices and endpoints will be populated with a Geoverse SIM card, enabling them to securely connect to the private network and utilize capabilities such as outbound roaming should they need to transit off-site.

OMSS plans to accelerate its digital transformation by using the Geoverse service platform to enable sitewide wireless coverage, Industrial IoT, and advanced analytics to make its container yard operation more productive and efficient. With Geoverse, OMSS is leveraging the cellular network to manage better its increasing container traffic, the tightening demands on the supply chain, and the growing, dynamic handling volumes.

In working with Geoverse, OMSS is seeking to:

• Maximize benefits of its container yard management assets
• Better utilize automated cargo handling equipment
• Improve safety and security
• Reduce operational costs
• Increase drayage efficiency
• Support communication services and generally operate in a more sustainable way
