As the world rolls out transformational 5G services, the American companies that once led the world are suddenly playing catchup with Chinese innovators.
Wireless Wars uncovers how this happened—and how to change the ending of this story.
When you think of 5G, you likely think of evolving wireless services, which enable self-driving cars, advanced telemedicine, and new industrial technology. What you should also be thinking about are the dangers of placing sensitive information—personal, financial, medical, and even military—into the hands of companies that answer to the Chinese government. Huawei, a global super-company that has surged from a local vendor to a $120 billion-a-year behemoth in just a few years has successfully crushed the competition. For now.
In Wireless Wars: China’s Dangerous Domination of 5G and How We’re Fighting Back, telecommunications veteran Jon Pelson details the comprehensive history of this legendary race for 5G domination, and how the US is working to take back its lead and secure our networks. He shares never-before-told stories from the executives and scientists who built industry giants such as AT&T, Ericsson, and Nokia. Get an up-close look at China’s efforts to undercut and destroy competing equipment makers so it can export its nation’s version of the surveillance state–enlisting the world’s political, business, and military leaders in its plan to control rival nations’ networks.
In these pages, Pelson draws on his lifelong experience in the telecommunications industry and direct access to the sector’s leaders to reveal how innovative companies, along with counter-intelligence and cybersecurity experts, are taking on Huawei. Wireless Wars offers unparalleled insights into how 5G is impacting businesses, national security, and you. It also looks to the future, proposing how American can use its own unique superpower to retake the lead from China.
For anyone curious about one of the hottest issues at the intersection of technology and geopolitics, Wireless Wars offers an immersive crash course and an unforgettable read.
