Corporate competition in 5G set to intensify

Thursday, July 30, 2020

Significance

This demonstrates the effectiveness of US commercial and diplomatic moves to get allies to shun Chinese technology.

Impacts

  • A European boycott of Huawei could prompt retaliation by Beijing in the form of trade and tariff barriers.
  • US-China tech rivalry will outlive the current US government, but a Democratic president would tone down the rhetoric.
  • Moving to a multivendor 5G strategy to limit risks is challenging given technical and operational obstacles.
