“Orange 5G Campus in the Port of Antwerp and the new perspectives opened for industry use cases thanks to 5G performance.”
Watch our duo presentation with:
Valérie Cussac, Executive Vice President, Smart Mobility Services, Orange Business Services and
Werner De Laet, Chief Enterprise Officer, Orange Belgium
Duration: 23 minutes
Discover the practical cases of the Antwerp Industry 4.0 Campus: Port of Antwerp, Covestro, BASF, Helicus and Boréalis.
- #1 Port of Antwerp
In the Port of Antwerp, the powerful 5G network of Orange Belgium is of great help to tugboat operations. Camera images are transmitted in real time to help tugboats maneuver the large cargo ships more easily into the port.
- #2 Covestro
Orange Belgium has installed a 5G hub in the Port of Antwerp, which gives certain companies access to innovative applications. 5G has enabled polymer manufacturer Covestro to discover augmented reality for safer and more efficient processes.
- #3 BASF
At BASF, certain services such as maintenance and intervention crews invariably communicate via walkie-talkies connected over the Tetra network. Since this network will soon be obsolete, the port-based company is now busily exploring the possibilities of the Orange 5G network.
- #4 Helicus
In conjunction with thirty Belgian care institutions, platform provider Helicus has set up a project for the delivery of medical supplies via drones in Belgium. As an international expert and front runner in 5G, Orange Belgium is providing Helicus with the support they need.
- #5 Boréalis
Orange Belgium installed a 5G hub in the port of Antwerp to introduce companies to innovative applications. Boréalis, a chemical production company, had the chance to see first-hand that 5G is just as powerful as a cable network, but much more flexible.
