The Port of Barcelona will host a pilot test of 5G technology applied to logistics systems in container traffic. The program will be launched next June for a period of half a year and will take place at the South Pier, promoted by Telefónica, APM, Ficosa, Harman and Mobile World Capital. The objective is to increase safety in the movement of containers between workers, cranes and trucks.
Anatel, the Brazilian telecommunications regulator, has approved the regulation that will govern 5G in the country without restricting the use of specific suppliers, thus avoiding pressure for Huawei equipment to be vetoed from deployments.
The consulting firm Gartner ranks Ericsson as a prominent leader in the 5G network infrastructure market, ahead of Huawei and Nokia, the other two leading suppliers. Ericsson's advantage is attributed among others to its use of DSS technology.
After a few days in which Ericsson has held the title of the lightest 5G radio on the market with a weight of 20 kg, five less than the equivalent Huawei model, the latter firm has regained the throne with a new equipment that weighs 19 kg .
