United States retains substantial economic leverage in areas that China cannot match.

Shane Tews and Claude Barfield interview Roger Entner, telecommunications expert and founder of Recon Analytics, on safeguarding 5G networks, the 5G supply chain, software-defined networking, Huawei, and the economic prosperity promised by 5G.

Securing the digital frontier: Policies to encourage digital privacy, data security, and open-ended innovation

Real anxieties about privacy and security could undermine confidence in the digital marketplace if we do not update our laws, norms, institutions, and technologies.

Deputy Assistant secretary for Cyber and International Communications and Information Policy Robert Strayer holds a news briefing at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, February 26, 2019.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Cyber and International Communications and Information Policy Robert Strayer discusses the importance of securing 5G wireless networks internationally.

Last week’s antitrust ruling against Qualcomm risks carriers major implications for the future of 5G and America’s national security. The government should move to expedite the proceedings and ensure that all factors, including national security, are taken into account.

The bottom line is this: There might be an increased sense of urgency, but Beijing is already committing huge resources to catch up with the US and other nations. While there may be valid reasons to question the Trump administration’s decision to ban Huawei chip purchases, it is not likely that it will have any real effect on Xi Jinping’s determination to spend and spend to catch up with the US.

Over the past two weeks, a cascade of events has made AEI’s upcoming event on the future of 5G extremely timely. Claude Barfield poses some questions he hopes the experts will tackle.

The urgent intervention by the Department of Justice and others in a Federal Trade Commission’s suit against Qualcomm underscores the fact that the company has become a de facto “national champion,” and its interests will shape industrial, technology, and national security policy.

The FCC has already moved several bands of spectrum to the commercial market to be used in 5G wireless networks. Allowing satellite companies to sell their mid-band spectrum will allow service providers to truly harness 5G’s potential.

In the high tech arena, it’s not your grandfather’s competition policy anymore — inevitably, national security, industrial policy, and the race with China form a backdrop to policy and legal spats.
