Fred DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science Executive Speaker Series 5G Technology: Is China a Threat to US Dominance?

Fifth generation (5G) wireless technology promises to revolutionize the communications industry by enabling substantially faster data speeds, lower latency, and higher reliability. It has been designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together, and its’ greater data rates will enable a wave of new types of technologies, products, and services. Including ultra-reliable industrial control, vehicular to vehicular communication, and many new not yet imagined immersive digital experiences. The fastest 5G networks are expected to be at least ten times faster than current 4G; that’s fast enough to download a two-hour movie in seconds. As 5G and its predecessor generations of standards have enabled a truly global market, the evolved standards rely on continued collaboration and coordination worldwide. Current global trade tensions and the increased Cybersecurity and Data Privacy concerns may have a profound effect on the global supply chain for wireless infrastructure and smartphones. In particular, the current divergence in regional policy and law on privacy, data collection, and direct state investment in companies threaten that global ecosystem.
