Join us for a virtual discussion with Jonathan Pelson, author of Wireless Wars: China’s Dangerous Domination of 5G and How We’re Fighting Back. As the world rolls out transformational 5G services, it has become increasingly clear that China may be able to disrupt—or even access—the wireless networks that carry our medical, financial, and even military communications.
In Wireless Wars, Jon Pelson explains how America invented cellular technology, taught China how to make the gear, and then handed them the market. Pelson reveals China’s successful program to purchase the support of the world’s leading political, business, and military figures in their effort to control rival nations’ networks. He also describes the work by counterintelligence and cybersecurity experts to prevent China from closing the trap.
