5G: What It Is and What It Means for the Transatlantic Relationship

By Andrea Kendall-Taylor, Rachel Rizzo and Elsa B. Kania

CNAS Adjunct Senior Fellow Elsa B. Kania joins Dr. Andrea Kendall-Taylor and Rachel Rizzo to discuss 5G technology and its implications for transatlantic security. Elsa B. Kania broadly explains 5G, how it will affect societies’ economic futures, and the current state of the ‘race’ to adopt next generation networks. They also discuss Huawei, the support it receives from the Chinese government, and the advantages it gives back—as well as whether Huawei is actually as far ahead of its competition as it has touted in the past.
