M1’s 4.5G network aims to establish ship-to-shore communication links.
M1 has announced that it tied up with Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) for the test bedding of Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS) in Singapore waters, an announcement revealed.
The trial will utilise autonomous vessel technology and leverage on M1’s ultra-low latency 4.5G network connectivity to establish reliable ship-to-shore communication links, and support mission-critical Internet-of-Things (IoT) maritime applications.
“We are very pleased to be the network partner for this autonomous maritime vessel project as the valuable hands-on experience gained from this trial would further strengthen our engineering capabilities to design and build an ultra-reliable and low latency 5G network for future smart maritime use cases,” said Denis Seek, Chief Technical Officer at M1.
