LAS VEGAS —A top AT&T network executive scoffed at the idea that operators in the U.S. should consider sharing some of their 5G network infrastructure with each other in order to deploy the next-generation of network technology more quickly. “I think it’s a terrible idea,” said Tom Keathley, SVP of wireless network architecture and design at AT&T. “It’s not that it’s impossible. But the desire to do it from an operator perspective is not good. We would lose control,” he said.

Trump's 'Secure 5G & Beyond Act' Explained: What It Actually Means

Article | April 1, 2020

The Trump White House has signed the "Secure 5G and Beyond Act of 2020," paving the way for the creation of a plan to secure 5G networks and protect related innovations. With 5G devices rolling out in the US market, and providers expanding their 5G coverage, the future of mobile tech is getting closer, and the U.S. government is beginning to look more seriously at how it can best be protected. The path to 5G-enabled devices and compatible services in the United States began opening up in 2019, with major mobile companies introducing a handful of 5G-enabled phones and limited service options. With more devices built to capitalize on 5G on the horizon - and demand for 5G access from other industries on the rise - the signing of the Act gives US lawmakers a path toward legislation to help protect US businesses, citizens, and strategic allies.

A strong US 5G sector promises good jobs and better security

Article | April 1, 2020

On Dec. 12, 1901, Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi demonstrated the very first transatlantic radio-wave transmission and ushered in a new age of wireless communications. More than a century later, wireless technology still is one of our primary sources of communication. But as our radio-wave highways become increasingly congested, each new generation of wireless technology is forced to ascend into higher and higher frequencies. The fifth generation of wireless technology, known as “5G,” will expand into spectrum bands Marconi could never have foreseen. Because it will allow data to be transmitted more quickly and efficiently than ever before, 5G technology has the potential to improve everything from search and rescue missions and medical care to transportation, real-time language translation and precision farming. It could allow firefighters to use thermal imaging to see through smoke and locate victims more easily. It could help specialists perform remote robotic surgery on patients who are far away.
