A New Consensus Is Emerging On How to Handle The Risk from China’s 5G

A New Consensus Is Emerging On How to Handle The Risk from China’s 5G | #TpromoCom #China #Spy #5G | Chinese telecom tech is invading the physical world, but Europeans and industry have strategies to contain the threat.

“No one calls it an intelligence risk, but national security agencies across the world are concerned about China’s 5G modems and other devices,” says Al Colombo, Senior Design Specialist with TpromoCom of Canton, Ohio.

Much of the Western intelligence debate around Chinese high-speed 5G technology has focused on hardware and software. Once the hardware is already out in the wild — which most think is inevitable — the future of the fight is in managing risk. It’s doable, if not yet widely advertised, according to several experts speaking at a U.S. intelligence conference this week, by quarantining Chinese equipment and deploying smarter electromagnetic spectrum management tools to better handle threats.

Bottom line: Huawei leads the world in the ability to rapidly produce cheap telecom hardware (as well as the underlying software.) Recent reports, including one from NATO, state it plainly. It’s one reason why European countries, including U.S. allies like Germany and the U.K., have been reluctant to ban tech from Huawei outright, even in the face of heavy U.S. pressure.
