Partnerships Crucial to Advancing U.S. 5G, Beating China, Feds Say

April 17, 2019 / JOHN COSTELLO

Federal government officials warned about the risks and challenges of rolling out 5G wireless networks – particularly in terms of the threat China poses in its global advancement of 5G – and emphasized that use of public-private partnerships in developing America’s vision for 5G networks will be critical for ensuring network security and staying internationally competitive. Bill Evanina, director of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s National Counterintelligence and Security Center, emphasized at the April 16 INSA Spring Symposium that if the United States doesn’t step up the pace in 5G development now, China will own the global apparatus for 5G service in the near future.
