EDITOR ’ S NOTE
Welcome to the latest edition of Intelligent CIO LATAM . This month we connect you to a first project with a private 5G SA network in the Latin American sector .
The initiative implements a video analytics solution connected with 5G SA to optimize vehicle logistics at the port in Pernambuco , Brazil .
On p56 you can read about how it all comes together .
Frank Moyer , CTO , Kobiton , says that in taking your mobile testing strategy to the next level a little ‘ chaos ’ can go a long way .
Embratel , Brazil ’ s National Secretariat of Ports and Aquatic Transport , has partnered with the Porto de Suape Industrial Complex to make this happen .
As Nilson Monteiro , Director of Port Management , Suape , tells us , the innovation has opened doors to new scenarios with 5G , AI and Machine Learning – among other technologies .
A private 5G Standalone ( SA ) network – installed in the 3.5GHz band at a port for the first time in Latin America – the project used Claro ’ s fifth-generation mobile Internet and smart cameras integrated with a video analytics solution to automate and optimize the logistics processes for identifying and monitoring the entry and exit of vehicles stored at the dock .
As context to the difference that can make , consider Suape is a port-industry complex occupying an area of 17,300 hectares and interconnected with more than 250 ports on all continents .
The space designated for the Vehicle Hub has three public yards for car storage and an annual handling capacity of 250,000 cars , indicating significant digitization potential .
That ’ s calling on ‘ chaos ’ in the context of mobile software testing applying conditions that might cause performance or reliability problems for real-world users , as Moyer explains on p44 .
Our Editor ’ s Question asks what makes the ideal CIO ? See if you agree with the answers on p32 .
This month ’ s Get to Know is Fábio de Carvalho Vieira , CEO , SaveinCloud . Read what makes Fábio who he is on p79 .
And there ’ s plenty more where this all came from – so take time out to check it out .
Have an innovative month .
