US in Competition with China for 5G Domination, Says James Jones


The US is in competition with China for 5G domination says James Jones, former Obama National Security Advisor. Jones says that 5G is the most disruptive technology to come our way this century, but we are way behind China in 5G marketing. He says that the choice is clear for our friends and allies. “You can either go for the cheap, seductive, but extremely vulnerable system that will take all of your privacy, your intellectual properties, and your secrets back to Beijing, or you can invest a little bit more money and have a more secure society.

James Jones, former Obama National Security Advisor and founder of Jones Group International discusses how 5G is going to transform society and that the competition for 5G domination is with China in an interview on CNBC International:

The US is in Competition with China for 5G Domination

The 5G issue is the most disruptive technology that’s going to come our way probably in this century. 4G and 3G were evolutionary, 5G is transformative. Not just about military either. I’m talking about all aspects of our society, from banking to the medical field, and to the smart cities that we have ambitions for. You can’t have a smart city if you don’t have a secure network.

The competition is China. Whoever wins this competition is going to be a very dominant player on the globe. China has a very seductive appealing message. We’re cheap. We’re reliable. We don’t put strings on our technology. What they don’t say is, we don’t share our technology. We don’t train you on our technology. We don’t give you the keys. We don’t give you the encryption. And we won’t partner with your domestic countries.

You Cannot Have Both Chinese 5G and US 5G

The US technology that we’re developing will do just the opposite of that. It will make us more secure. It will enable our individual citizens to have a private secure cellphone. It will enable our corporations to have protection of their intellectual properties. It will enable our governments to be more secure. In an organization like NATO, you cannot have a Chinese system and a US system interface.

So the choices for our friends and allies are clear, you can either go for the cheap, seductive, but extremely vulnerable system that will take all of your privacy, your intellectual properties, and your secrets back to Beijing, or you can invest a little bit more money and have a more secure society.

I think in the marketing of it we are behind. One of the reasons the Chinese system is cheap is because it’s subsidized. Our government is now waking up I think and we’re seeing more pronouncements from our leaders, which is very good. The private sector is doing quite well. I think our technological advance is very impressive. We’re working on systems that are impenetrable. In other words, it can’t be hacked and can’t be reverse engineered. Those are the two things that will assure our technical dominance in the future.
